We are looking for dedicated and competitive individuals to join our winning team! UC San Diego Men’s Rowing is consistently one of the top programs in the country and we do it all with walk-on student-athletes with no prior rowing experience.

UC San Diego Rowing is not a club sport. We are part of the Intercollegiate Athletics Department, so you will receive all the benefits and expectations of being a student-athlete. By joining, you will have the opportunity to travel and compete against the best schools in the nation. Moreover, you will compete at the Division I level against teams such as UCLA, USC, Cal, Washington, Harvard, Yale and Princeton. No rowing experience is necessary!

What about academics and not having enough time?
With the structured environment of being a student-athlete, you will find your life is more organized, thus freeing up time to enjoy the college experience. All team members receive priority registration to accommodate our practice schedule. For the fall quarter, do your best to schedule NO 8:00 a.m. classes!

Who can join?
With UC San Diego's move to Division I, we are becoming more selective with our walk-ons. Most athletes are above six feet tall, but it is not the only requirement. Walk-ons should be seasoned athletes who are looking to compete at the highest level.

Our first team meeting for the 2018-19 season is Monday, October 1st, at 8:00 p.m. in RIMAC's Green Room.

If you have any questions, or if you are unable to attend the meeting but would still like to try out for the team, please contact Assistant Coach Jeff Collett at 714.393.7273 or
