ABOUT CREW

ABOUT CREW

Baylor Crew is the collegiate rowing team of Baylor University.

Although not affiliated with the NCAA, our co-ed club competes in regattas against colleges across the country.

SIGN UP

NO EXPERIENCE? NO PROBLEM.

The majority of our members never rowed before joining Baylor Crew. Our coaches are qualified and more than happy to teach you not only the basics, but also how to excel alongside stiff competition.

Rowing requires long hours of practice and training while maintaining academic excellence. Baylor Crew embodies the time-honored tradition of the collegiate athlete as both a sportsman and scholar. We pride ourselves in mastering this challenging sport that demands dedication, focus, and teamwork.

It’s not all hard labor and early hours, however. Baylor Crew strives to create a fun, uplifting community, both at practice and outside of workouts. Social events are offered throughout the semester, including pre-regatta pasta parties, Crew Semi-Formal, and Crew-B-Q. The relationships formed through Crew reach beyond the sport. The teammates you lose, win, and sweat with often become some of your closest friends at Baylor.
