Our Mission

To develop the youth of Utah between the ages of 13 and 18 become rowers and help them develop their athleticism, team work, and social skills.  Rowing develops a work ethic and dedication to excellence that impacts academics positively. We have had rowers get into many excellent colleges--including Cornell, Wisconsin, Stanford, and Harvard to name a few.  We are strictly no-cut. Every child deserves the chance to develop their athleticism. Our no-cut policy and dedication to team culture are what make us successful. In recent years, we have won multiple regional titles and attended Youth and Club Nationals. Utah Crew has developed 100+ rowers since 2004.

Typical Schedule

Utah Crew typically offers two programs (Fall, Spring):

Youth Competition Team

Commitment:  Practices are all required. We also require attendance at races. There are no-cuts however, we just ask for dedication.

Practice Times: M, W, Th, F from 4-6 PM and Sat from 8-11 AM

Race/Travel Requirements: You are required to attend every local race and 1-2 travel regattas. 

Prerequisites: No experience required. New rowers usually race in novice categories for the first year so they will only race against people of similar experience.

Cost: $650 per season

Youth Recreational Team

Commitment: No commitment required. We just ask that if you can’t make it to practice, that you tell us 24 hours in advance.

Practice Times: M, W, F from 4-6 PM

Race/Travel Requirements: None. Can optionally attend local regattas.

Prerequisites: No experience required. We teach you everything you need to know.

Cost: $350 per season

Schedules in the winter and summer are less structured offering opportunities to improve fitness and stay involved in rowing.

Where We Row

Utah Crew practices most of the year on the Jordan Surplus Canal. Our boats are stored in a warehouse yard at Nickerson Pump across the street from our launch site. 

In the winter, we train indoors on ERGs and with weights at West High School.

From time-to-time, we also row at the Great Salt Lake Marina.  

Competitive regattas are held throughout the year across the country including on the Jordan Surplus Canal, at the Jordanelle Reservoir, and outside of Utah--often in Colorado, California, Washington.

Utah Crew has been in existence since 2004 and has helped over 100 youth by developing them as rowers.  Utah Crew is a non-profit athletic club supported through program tuition and charitable donations from the community. 

Rowing develops a work ethic and dedication to excellence that can have a very positive impact on academics.  In the past few years, we have had rowers get into Cornell, University of Wisconsin, Stanford, Harvard, and many more excellent institutions.

Utah Crew is strictly no-cut.  We believe that every child deserves the chance to develop their athleticism.  And in fact, we think our no-cut policy and dedication to team culture are what make us one of the fastest teams in the Mountain West region. The last two years, we have won multiple regional titles and attended Youth Nationals.

Our rowers get amazing opportunities to compete all over the US. Utah Crew teams over the last 14 years have competed and succeed at multiple regattas including:

  • US Rowing Youth Nationals, New Jersey
  • Southwest Youth Championships, California
  • Head of the Charles, Boston
  • Head of the Lake, Washington
  • San Diego Fall Classic, California
  • Henley Royal Regatta, England
  • Mountain West Rowing Championships, Colorado
  • Boulder Sprints, Colorado
  • Brine Shrimp Sprints, Utah
  • Wasatch Mountain Head, Utah
  • Portland Fall Classic, Oregon

Utah Crew is a small club with 25-30 rowers, and we are keen to keep growing.  We believe there is a wonderful opportunity to grow and exploring opportunities with United Way, Girl Scouts and multiple public schools across the Salt Lake Valley.
