Women's Crew

Welcome to the Royals Women's Crew Program

March 16, 2020: In an abundance of caution due to the coronavirus outbreak, the leadership of SUNY Schenectady has decided to cancel all of our spring 2020 sports programs. While we understand this news is disappointing, we believe it is the right decision at this time for the safety and health of the coaches and student athletes.

If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to David Gonzalez, Director of Athletics at gonzaldm@sunysccc.edu.

Currently in its 11th season, SUNY Schenectady is one of only two community college in the country with a women’s crew program - Orange Coast Community College of California being the other.

The Royals program has steadily grown over the past few years both in terms of the number of women participating and the number of competitive races the women have rowed in. What an impressive list of regattas-Head of the Charles in Boston, Head of the Housatonic in Connecticut, Head of the Genessee in Rochester and our very own Head of the Mohawk here in Schenectady. Add races against local rivals, Union, UAlbany and RPI and you have a full schedule for the season. Whether you are new to the sport (most of our team members never rowed in high school but participated in endurance sports like track and field, soccer or basketball) or a veteran rower we are always looking for new potential rowers.
