“Rensselaer Crew Club aims to compete safely. This project will help us achieve this goal as we replace old safety equipment, like life jackets and warm up blankets, and purchase new equipment to face the challenges of today’s world, including masks and sanitization spray.” – Ryan Walton
RPI Crew is a student-run Rensselaer Union organization on campus. Our mission statement: The purpose of the club shall be to promote the sport of rowing through competition and good sportsmanship. The club shall seek to impress upon the membership the importance of teamwork, dedication, and discipline, as well as the positive social characteristics of rowing.
What You're Supporting
Your donation will ensure that the RPI Crew Club will be able to operate safely. There are some inherent dangers to rowing, but proper safety gear like life jackets and warm up blankets significantly mitigate these risks.
This project will allow us to safely practice so we can improve the strength and conditioning of the members of the crew team, thus leading to improvement in race performances, exhibiting a better representation of the school's ability, and attracting and retaining new members to the club as a result of previous success.
Who We Are
Although the RPI Crew club is not affiliated with the NCAA, we strive to become more and more competitive, representing Rensselaer as we race other schools at regattas. Without the same facilities and equipment as other NCAA teams, the RPI Crew team is at a disadvantage. New equipment will better suit our rowers and aid us as we train and condition for these events.
