Current college rowers who are in the area for school breaks are able to practice with the team for free. Students must have completed at least one semester of college rowing to be included in this membership.
We will be begining our college rowing program in Fall 2023. It will serve all area colleges who do not already have a team. Any experienced rowers are welcome to join. Please see below for more info.
Please e-mail email@example.com to take part in either of these activities.
We are starting a new college club team starting in Fall 2023! It will be open to all rowers how learned to row in high school and currently attend college at Willamette University, Western Oregon University, Corban University, Chemeketa Community College, or Linn-Benton Community College or anywhere else you feel like you live close enough to make this reasonable. Historically Willamette and WOU have struggled to keep enough rowers on the team to keep it viable, we are hoping that by combining all 5 schools into one program and sharing equipment and coaching with our existing master's program, it will be able to be a sustainable program moving forward.
We will start out as a mostly recreational team participating in about 2 regattas a year. As we gage interest, we will determine if people want to be more competitive or more recreational or some combination of the two. At Salem Rowing Club we value community, flexibility, affordability, and friendship. This allows you to focus on your studies, but still get some much needed rowing in.
Since this is a new program, please don't select any of these schools specifically for this rowing program, but if you chose these schools for other reasons and are in the area, we'd love to have you as part of this program.
