Kansas Rowing to Host Open House
The Kansas rowing program will host an open house Sunday, Jan. 25th at the University of Kansas Boathouse in Burcham Park and will begin at 2pm.
The open house is for high school junior and senior women interested in rowing at KU. No prior rowing experience is necessary.
The open house will begin with tours of the Kansas Boathouse located at 200 Indiana Street in Burcham Park in Lawrence. The program will include information presented by KU coaches and current rowers.
Rowing has been a varsity sport at KU since 1995 and averages about 75 team members. The team is comprised of two squads; the Varsity Squad, which is for second, third and fourth year rowers; and the Novice squad, which is for rowers in their first year of collegiate competition. The vast majority of Novices have no previous rowing experience.
Both squads are varsity athletes at KU and enjoy all of the support including academic advising and tutoring, training room and weight room access and workout and racing apparel.
