    There will probably be an announcement during orientation inviting kids to join, or you may wish to email the coach. Check out the crew page at the Smith athletic site for more info.

    If you can find the coach's email on the Smith Athletics page, you can also email the coach and ask. In my experience, Smith coaches are very friendly and really want to do everything they can to get new athletes onto their teams, so don't be shy about being in touch with them.

    When you go to central check in the crew team will be there with a sign-up sheet to receive the emails. There will also be chalkings around campus announcing the interest meeting. Going to the interest meeting is the first step to joining. Crew is an amazing experience, the team is great both competitively and socially. I highly recommend joining.

    I tried emailing the coach but she hasn't replied, so I'm guessing she doesn't check her email during the summer. Do any current students know anyone who was/is in novice crew?

    Hi I was a Freshmen varsity member in the Fall but I did row w/ the Novices. You will not miss them at the central check-in. They probably start asking people to sign up as you line up outside. If you want to know members of the novice crew feel free to pm with your FB and I'll hook you guys up online :)
