Teammates Wanted.

No experience necessary! Our experienced, national-team trained coaches will build you to become national champions as you make lifelong friendships, push yourself to new limits, and represent Georgia Tech.

While many of our rowers were competitive high-school athletes, more than 90 percent of our team had no previous rowing experience prior to joining GT Crew. As long as you have the desire and dedication to improve your physical fitness and be part of a team, there can be a place for you on crew.

GT Crew is an intercollegiate, co-ed team that races throughout the Southeast and across the country against teams like Clemson, Purdue, and UGA. GT Crew has competed with powerhouse varsity and club programs to become one of the most elite club squads in the country—The student-run team was officially founded in 1986 and is the largest sports club on campus with approximately 70 athletes. We are also one of the most successful organizations at Georgia Tech, consistently earning medals at the Dad Vail national championship regatta for more than 13 years in a row.
