The ASU crews receive very little support from the University itself. The crews are not part of the Athletic Department and receive no Athletic Department funding. Aside from funds raised by Arizona Colegiate Rowing Foundation, the crews continue to be almost exclusively student-funded. There are no crew scholarships for student participants, and all crew coaches are volunteers who receive no regular salary or other compensation from the University.
We would like to ask for your help assisting us in the difficult task of moving our program up to the next level. As we strive towards tougher and larger competitions, we need more equipment and ways to train for, travel to, and enter races. With a continuously growing crew, our needs rise and change. For example, some of our more pressing needs for the 2017/2018 year include:
Heavyweight Men’s Pair
Rowing Equipment: Oars/ Oar Handles/ Rudders
Tools and Hardware
Equipment and Team Transportation (Most Regattas are Out of State)
While we know that money is tight everywhere and we don’t expect you to support any one of these particular items by themselves, we do know that even a little, when added together, can make a tremendous impact!
Please help support ASU rowing in whatever way you can! Thank you!
