Now recruiting for the 2021-2022 season!
Interested in rowing? We are seeking new rowers and coxswains. No experience required.
Men’s Crew Info Meeting: Thursday, February 10th at 6pm over Zoom (link will be posted here on Thursday)
Contact Coach (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or with any questions and to RSVP for the team info meeting for current and potential rowers and coxswains.
Team members are expected to work hard in the classroom, on the water, in the erg room and in the weight room. We believe that through hard work, fun, challenging ourselves and supporting each other we learn, become stronger and realize our potential.
Rowing is a unique team sport that requires mental toughness, a commitment to the success of the team and a willingness to push your physical limits. PLU Men’s Rowing provides an avenue for fitness, fun, teamwork, competition, and lifelong friendships.
Leave the campus world to train on American Lake where you will experience the challenge of both strength and finesse; coming together as a team to move the boat with a combination of power and technique.
The spring season is about to begin! We are looking for new team members with an eagerness to learn to row, forge friendships and establish positive habits with regard to sleep, time management, training and nutrition.
The season begins in mid February. We aim to compete in regattas in WA, OR and CA against D1, 2 and 3 programs from the western US. The season culminates with the WIRA Championship Regatta, a 30+ team event in Sacramento, CA.
The Men’s Rowing team will seek to continue building on its recent success. Rowing at PLU is a long-standing tradition and is backed by a generous alumni board.
4 team members graduate! (May 2021)
Congratulations to our graduating seniors:
- Isaiah Banken (Wenatchee, WA)
- Bay Faubion (Snohomish, WA)
- Salma Ibrahim (Federal Way, WA)
- James Waltz (Olympia, WA)
Your energy and commitment will be missed. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors… and you are expected to stay in shape for the Alumni Race in March 2022.
New shell named in honor of 1970 V4+ that finished 3rd at National Championships.
The support of over 65 donors helped the team purchase a Pocock 4+. We are incredibly grateful for the generous support we received from alumni, family, faculty, staff and friends. The boat represents a significant upgrade to our fleet and will serve the program for many years to come.
The shell will be named in honor of the 1970 PLU Men’s Varsity 4+ which defeated the University of Washington twice that season and finished 3rd at the IRA National Championships.
