Welcome to the Royals Women's Crew Program
Currently in its 14th 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.
