Join Xavier Prep Crew
Welcome 2020-2021 New Rowers!
Due to COVID-19 getting our New Rowers on the water will look a little different this year.
We will be starting with New Rowers after Labor Day on September 8th.
New Rowers will sign-up for a 3 day Learn to Row.
These will be held on Tuesday &Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings throughout the month of September.
All rowers must complete the Float Test below. Upon signing up you will also be given a list of all COVID protocols that must be followed.
After the 3 days athletes can decide if crew is the sport for them!
This is a NO CUT team! No experience is required!
*If you have already done Learn to Row with another club or rowed throughout 8th grade please email Coach Shannon.
**Due to COVID-19 we ask that all new rowers remain flexible as things are changing everyday. Once we have your email on file we will keep you updated with any new information.
Feel free to email Coach Shannon if you have any questions:
This is your opportunity to become a member of a competitive sport that requires no prior experience. You could qualify for Nationals in your first year of rowing. Xavier Prep Crew travels to California in the fall and spring and some races take place on the East Coast. You can earn college scholarships to schools across the country. Previous athletes have attended USC, SDSU, USD, Saint Mary's, UC Davis, SMU, Tulsa, LMU, OCU, Bucknell and more on athletic scholarship. Practices are held Monday- Thursday from 4-6:30pm on Tempe Town Lake, student carpools are available both to and from practice. This is a year round sport, but you may join in either the Fall or Spring. You may join at anytime in the Fall. Our cut off for joining in the Spring is February. You may join at any grade level. Since the start of Xavier Prep Crew we have maintained one of the highest GPA's of all sports teams on campus. Xavier Crew provides an instant group of friends on campus and it continues as Alums. We hope to see you on the water soon!!
