Crew (M)

UNC Men’s Crew is a highly competitive club rowing program consistently ranked in the top 5 teams of the American Collegiate Rowing Association. We represent the university at the highest level, performing well at national and international events. We have a professional coaching staff that boasts a 2008 Olympic Medalist, and a practice facility located close to campus.

Additionally, we are proud to recruit females who are interested in coxing (great leadership experience).
