Growing in size and strength with every season, American University Crew is a collegiate club sports team appealing to those with and without a background in rowing and athletics.

Entirely student-run, the team and its veterans were given an opportunity to not only enhance themselves but expand membership to all those willing to work and strive for what inevitably becomes a memorable part of one’s college career.

American University Rowing Club currently rows out of the Anacostia Community Boathouse on the Anacostia River and neighboring Washington D.C. Channel, opposite the United States Navy Yard and nearby Reagan National Airport.  Click here to see where we’re headed for Fall 2017!

We now also have a team store up and running down at JustRow.com!  Show your team spirit with T-shirts, sweats, blankets — even an apron with the AU Crew logo.

  1. Do you hold training in the spring and winter?

  2. Hi. What 2k time would a girl need in order to be on your varsity team?

    • Hi Bridget,
      As a club, we accept everyone who wants to join. Our varsity team consists of people who have been on the team for longer than a year, regardless of speed. The current average on the women’s varsity team is just above 8 minutes.
      If you have any more questions, please ask us at americancrew@gmail.com!

  3. Hello,
    I was wondering if you offer scholarships for women who have prior experience in crew.
    Thank you.

  4. Hello,
    Does American University provide transportation to and from the boathouse?

    Thank you for your time.

  5. I rowed in high school and want to continue rowing. How do I join the men’s team.

    • Hey Sam!
      We will be tabling outside MGC throughout this week, and will be holding information sessions September 2nd and 3rd (Wednesday and Thursday) in Anderson 3k (3rd floor in Anderson Hall, behind elevators) at 7pm. This Sunday, we will be holding a Learn-to-Row at our boathouse, where you can get back on the water. For more info, you can check out the “How to Join” page under the “About Us” tab or email us with a specific question at americancrew@gmail.com.

  6. Do you hold your coxswains to conventional weight standards? I row now in high school and I want to cox. I weigh between 123 and 130 pounds (it depends on the day, really, but I can hold it down). I’m a girl, but I’d be willing to cox the guys. I’m a pretty good coxswain and will be getting better over the summer. Would I be allowed to cox?

  7. how many rowers are on the mens and womens teams?
