Rules and requirements for team membership:

Athletic Ability - a previous background in sports is desirable but not a requirement. Previous experience rowing at the high school level is also not a requirement. The majority of our team members have had no prior experience. An average physical condition with good health would be the necessary basis for starting in this sport.

Weight Categories - Collegiate rowing has two categories of competition, lightweight and heavyweight. Lightweight men must weigh 160 lbs or less. Lightweight women must weigh 130 lbs or less. All other weights greater than these will qualify a rower as a heavyweight. Coxswains generally weigh 130 lbs or less.

Dues - No dues are required.

Travel - Most regattas will require travel. For regattas, the teams leaves the Friday afternoon before the regatta and will usually return before Saturday evening. Races are as close as Nashville and as far as Atlanta and Knoxville.
