Looking for heavyweight walk-on rowers for the upcoming spring season
After a successful fall racing season full of raising bars, setting new standards and developing novice rowers, The University of Delaware Men’s crew team invites Heavyweight class male athletes to join them for winter training and the competitive spring racing season. No Prior Experience Necessary, just a willingness to work hard and a competitive drive. As a walk-on, you will be taught all the elements of rowing on and off the water while meeting new people and getting involved in the University of Delaware Community.
Heavyweight Rowing: Open Weight
Many of our walk-on rowers have previously participated in sports such as football, wrestling or cross country. Rowers typically average 180 lbs. and 6’0″.Walk on rowers with athletic background and size integrate quickly into the sport and become competitive with experienced rowers. Heavyweight training includes weightlifting as well as endurance training on and off the water along with indoor rowing tank training.
Winter training begins January 6th and continues through winter session. Spring racing season will begin with the start of the spring semester on February 10th.
