The Training

Walk-on practices start at 90 minutes per session Monday through Friday, increasing throughout the season. Practice sessions include rowing on the water from our boathouse on the Snake River and land training at our indoor training facility in the Hollingbery Fieldhouse. The team works around your class schedules.

Learning to Row

As a walk-on, you will be taught the fundamentals of rowing and train competitively alongside other novices and experienced varsity rowers. At the end of the year, you can compete at the ACRA National Championships representing WSU. Rowing is a sport with a long legacy of student-athletes who learn to row in college contending for, and winning, national championships. Even at the Olympic level, half of the US Rowing Olympic team is made of athletes who learned how to row in college.
