Racing Teams

Weekly Practices & Weekend Races

The primary goal of the racing team is to bring together a group of highly motivated athletes who will work together to perform at their highest potential. The biggest determinant of success is commitment to the team and your personal improvement as a rower and athlete. The competitive team provides more time with the coaches, additional on-water practice, structured training workouts on land and on the water, and a focus on racing strategies and readiness. Racing team members have access to all racing privileges, services and equipment for the entire rowing season.

If interested in joining the racing team, please contact one of the following individuals.
Women’s Racing Team Captain – Sonja Randall at
