ABOUT CLEMSON CREW
The oldest collegiate sport in North America was introduced to Clemson in 1988 by two bright-eyed freshman with a passion for the time-honored sport and beautiful Lake Hartwell. Fast forward 30 years and find Clemson Crew competing all across the Eastern Seaboard, including the prestigious Dad Vails and Head of the Charles regattas in Philadelphia and Boston. Sitting above a 50,000-acre lake system, our boathouse is fountainhead to a thriving Rowing Community that extends not only to oarsmen, coxswains, and coaches, but also to superfan parents, alumni, and the greater student body.
Keep up with us on Instagram and Facebook!
A nation-wide rowing destination, our on-campus facility has hosted the U.S. Rowing Team on their way to the 2008 Beijing Olympics and a long list of northern D1 schools tired of bobsledding their boat across a frozen river. Our spacious lakeside boathouse always has its garage
doors open to anyone wanting to learn more about the team. Visit us during practice held weekdays 5-7 pm or email a member of the board.
HOW TO GET HERE
E Beach Drive, Clemson, SC 29631
Navigate to East Beach Drive in Clemson, located across Perimeter Road from LittleJohn Coliseum and marked with a Clemson Rowing sign. Follow the road all the way to the end and the boathouse is at the top of the hill.
Rowing is one of the few athletic clubs at Clemson University that takes any student regardless of athletic ability. While tiered boats allow members to compete with oarsmen of the same caliber, anyone who demonstrates a sustained commitment to the sport can compete and thrive on Clemson Crew. As such, we sometimes have to make long-term investments that ensure our capacity keeps up with our growing popularity. We need your help to make that happen! Donations are greatly appreciated by rowers present and future.
