UCLA Men's Rowing 2024

UCLA Men's Rowing is a Varsity Club Sport recognized by both the Pac-12 Conference and the American Collegiate Rowing Association. The team of oarsmen and coxswains wake up to practice at 5:15 AM six days a week, and they participate in grueling land workouts on the erg twice a week. This requires a commitment of over 20 hours per week, all while maintaining a team GPA of 3.7 in many of UCLA's hardest majors.

Given its status as a club sport, UCLA Men's Rowing does not receive ANY funding from UCLA athletics. Thus, the team relies heavily on a combination of dues from the athletes, and donations from generous family members and alumni. Financial assistance is needed to take care of equipment, organize travel accommodations, and pay the entry fee into several important races. The team specifically needs help to attend the ACRA National Championships in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the biggest race on the calendar. 


With your support last season, UCLA Men's Rowing was able to send five boats, three of which advanced to grand final. The Varsity won the regatta and claimed the national championship. The Junior Varsity and Novice 8 both claimed 4th place. Your help will allow the team achieve even higher feats this year, as our goal is achieve 3 gold medals at ACRA this year.


In addition to donating, you can help by spreading the word about the fundraiser to your family and friends. Reach out on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and help us represent UCLA at WIRA, ACRA, San Diego Crew Classic, and more!
