Why Row on the Division III level?
The strength of the PLU Crew team depends on
its competitiveness, and the objective of the PLU Crew program is to field
crews that are contenders for National Championship titles.
We seek to help our athletes recognize that the skills developed while racing for PLU yield confidence and strength of character and can be used to achieve success on campus and in life after graduation. PLU crew is a national leader, both in the scope of the opportunities offered to athletes and in the program’s success on the water.
Appealing to the nation’s achieving student-athletes, members of our team are distinguished by their competitive record on the water, as well as their work, research, and leadership in PLU’s academic environment. With supported openweight, lightweight, and novice squads, PLU offers competitive opportunities for every athlete. Whether you are an experienced/ recruited athlete — or are completely new to the sport — PLU crew welcomes you to join our rowing family!
