Amherst College Rowing Association

Welcome to the homepage of the Amherst College crew team!


Rowing is a club sport at Amherst College, which means anyone is welcome to join. We have men's and women's crews, with both experienced and novice boats.

We row in fours (shells with four rowers and a coxswain), competing in 6km head races during the fall season and in 2km sprint races during the spring season.

Most of our rowers and coxswains join the team with no experience, but thanks to our phenomenal, dedicated coaches, our boats are consistently competitive with top Div. III varsity and club crews.

Check out the rest of the site, and if you're interested in joining or have further questions, contact Head Coach Bill Stekl at Hope to see you on the river!
