Row With Us!

Who We Are:

OK State Rowing is a competitively focused, student run and professionally coached organization committed to developing student athletes both on and off the water. We prioritize the safety of our athletes and strive to include students of all backgrounds in this historically very expensive sport. In 2018, the OSU Rowing program started with only a handful of interested students with almost zero rowing equipment and has rapidly grown to a highly dedicated team of over fifty athletes training six days a week and competing across the country. Since its founding, the team has collectively medaled in over 11 races in Oklahoma City, Nashville, and Wichita. 

What We Do:

We focus on cultivating accessibility, inclusion and self-growth in our team. Since rowing is a historically expensive sport, the Okstate rowing team prioritizes affordability for our athletes by keeping dues low and creating fundraising opportunities to help make this sport available to all students, regardless of their socioeconomic background. We also strive to make this team a safe space for everyone who walks through our doors. Mental and physical health are equally important for both our coaches and our athletes. We focus on full body wellness to ensure our athletes can preform well both on and off the water.

We Need Your Help!

The Oklahoma State Rowing Team as a club sport, receives little to no direct funding from the university and is exclusively funded through athlete dues, fundraising, and community donations. Due to the almost exponential growth of the team over the past 3 years, we are now finding ourselves limited by a lack of boats, rowing machines and safety equipment. In 2019, the OSU Rowing club raised over $23,000, which allowed the team to buy a new launch, more safety equipment, and our boat shelter! This year, we are hoping to purchase new racing shells, boat shoes, coxboxes, and oars!
