HSU Men's CRew
The HSU Men's Crew team provides a unique environment through the sport of rowing that allows male students from Humboldt State to compete competitively in the collegiate rowing conferences on the West Coast. The people on the team get in the best shape of their lives while making lasting binding friendships through the team-building experience rowing provides.
About the Club
The HSU Men’s Crew team was founded in 1975. Since then we have helped bring the rowing world to the North Coast and Humboldt State, and throughout the years we have brought many gold medals home. The most recent was winning the Novice Lightweight 4 at the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association championships in 2010. We race throughout the school year, with 1-2 Head Races in the fall and 5-6 Sprint Races March-April, racing across the West Coast. We work hard and are a competitive team, but we also have a lot of fun. Come check us out! If you aren’t sure if you have the time come out anyways. We often work around our team-members schedules so as many people as possible can participate. The team has about 25 active participants currently, giving us a lot of opportunities at races to compete competitively with larger teams.
We are looking for students interested in athletics who are willing to work hard and be committed to the sport. There are no try-outs to participate, but we are seeking guys who are in reasonable physical shape. Girls 150lbs and under can also join to be coxswains for the team! No rowing experience is needed, and if you have rowing experience you’ll get the opportunity to race novice again!
How to Join
Show up to carpool at Library Circle at 5 and tell people you’re there to check out the team. Once you’ve checked out practice you’ll have to sign up for the class through student center and fill out insurance information.
