The NMU Crew Team gives students the opportunity to participate in the sport of rowing and compete across the Midwest. The club was founded in 1999 and has on average 20 members, male and female. We compete at three regattas during the season, Teal Lake in Negaunee, Tail of the Fox in DePere, Wisconsin, and Head of the Rock in Rockford, Illinois. The team practices on Lake Superior at Lower Harbor.
Fees for the team average $250 which include entrance fees for races, gas for traveling, and equipment maintenance.
Joining the Team:
No experience is required to join, we will teach you all you need to know! We have a learn-to-row weekend usually the first weekend after classes begin in the fall. To sign up for the team, visit the NMU Crew booth during Orientation or Fall Fest. Additionally, you can email the President or Vice President to be put on the email list. During learn-to-row weekend we will conduct a swim test and take our boats out on the water so you can experience what it feels like to row. Members are also required to have a student rec pass for fall and winter.
Practice Times (Tentative):
Monday - Friday 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. with two morning practices from 6 a.m.-8 a.m.
