First day of practice! For new members, this practice will be more focused on introducing you to the technique of rowing. We will be using rowing machines (ergometers, or just "ergs") to teach property form and technique. Don't worry, we'll move on to rowing in boats within the first few weeks of practice!
Things to bring: Water, workout clothes, running shoes, your studend ID
Think you might be interested in joining UT Crew? Want more information? Come to our interest meeting. You'll get to meet the club officers and current club members, and ask any questions you might have. Remember, there is no experience necessary to join UT Crew!
Heard about Crew but want to know a little more about joining? Come to our interest meeting to learn all about the sport of rowing, Tennessee Crew, and how to join. We'll be giving a short presentation on the club and what it is like to be on a rowing team. It will be a very informal setting, and you will be able to talk with club officers and members and ask any questions you may have.
This day will be the first day where new members are invited to come begin practicing with the team. If you already know 100% that you want to join the team, and don't need to wait until attending an interest meeting to make up your mind, you are free to begin training with the team on or after this date. Those who wait until after an interest meeting to join will not be at any kind of disadvantage or fall behind those who come early. The first several weeks of practice will likely consist of cardio training, without any practices on the river.
Tennessee Crew will be at the UT Welcome Week Student Engagement Fair this Friday. If you have any interest in joining the team please come by our table to get more information! We will have two rowing machines set up, and tshirts for anyone who can put up a respectable time for 500m.
Tennessee Crew will be at the RecSports RecFest this Tuesday. Come out to learn more about the RecSports program and the 40+ sports clubs we have at UT. Come by the Crew table to try and win a Tshirt by beating a member of our team at 500m on the rowing machine. If you have any interest in joining come by to ask questions and learn more about the sport and how to join!
