Palouse Rowing - Summer 2017

WSU Cougar Crew is hosting its 12th summer of Palouse Rowing. This includes programs for beginners as well as experienced rowers, which all meet three times each week. Practices are typically held two evenings during the week, plus a Saturday morning row. Our boathouse is located at Wawawai Landing on the Snake River. All classes are coed and welcome adults of all ages and juniors, age 12-17 years old.

The Learn To Row class is three weeks long and allows the beginner to be introduced to all of the basics of the sport, and begin to experience the thrill and challenge of rowing in an 8 person boat all pulling together. Masters Crew is an ongoing summer program for rowers that have various levels of previous experience. Crew Camp is our five week program which combines members of Masters Crew with our new teammates from the Learn to Row who want to keep rowing.

Each participant must register either online at urec.wsu.edu or in person at the WSU Student Rec Center before they can participate. Registration includes a required risk and release waiver. For participants under the age of 18, parents or legal guardians must sign the waiver. Transportation is not provided. Carpooling is typically arranged amongst participants. Each participant who completes the Crew Camp receives a Palouse Rowing T-shirt. Please review the information in our Palouse Rowing Info. Booklet before your session begins.

For ALL new participants in any of the Palouse Rowing programs, a basic swim test is required to help ensure safety on the water. It takes about 15 minutes to complete and involves treading water for 10 minutes and swimming four lengths of the pool continuously. Swim tests are held at the WSU Student Rec Center pool starting at either 6:00pm or 6:30pm on the following dates:

May 30
June 8
June 9

A swim test must be completed BEFORE your session starts. Please mark your calendar for one of these. You don't need to sign up just show up and meet Coach Arthur on the pool deck after you take a shower. Towels are provided. Proper swim attire is required. If you are unable to attend any of these sessions please communicate this to Coach Arthur as soon as possible. Those that do not pass the swim test will be required to wear a low profile PFD (personal flotation device) during practices.
