University rowing

This is not about recruitment. I’m not trying to get recruited.

Do most colleges that have a varsity rowing program have non/below varsity crews? and if so can you join them without any formal recruitment?.

I’ve rowed almost the entirety of high school and I’m pretty keen to continue rowing for the fun of it.

Lots of schools have club teams. You should be easily able to find out if the schools you are interested in have non varsity teams.


Club rowing is pretty common. Might seem obvious, but if there’s a good body of water near a college, there’s a good chance it has varsity rowing teams and club rowing.
