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.
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.
Utah Crew has two practice sites to allow rowers from both the Wasatch Back and Front join the team. Our main practice sites are the Jordanelle Reservoir in Park City and the Jordan Surplus Canal in Salt Lake City.
In the winter, we train indoors on ERGs and with weights at indoor facilites that change from season to season.
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. We started with a focus on students on the Wasatch Front, but in the fall of 2018 we worked with parents in Park City to add a practice site at the Jordanelle Reservoir and expand our capture area to include students on the Wasatch Back. 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:
Utah Crew is a small club with ~40 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.
