Skyline Crew

Welcome !

We are collectively committed to habitual excellence in the pursuit of learning our craft. Once we can hold ourselves accountable for our actions and how they affect the team, rather than the individual, we have done our job. Above all, our true desire to push ourselves beyond our limits and our compassion for one another is why we will always thrive on and off the water. NO INDIVIDUALS, JUST THE TEAM.

Incoming freshmen/novices– The great thing about crew, is you don’t need to have touched an oar prior to high school. But if you want to find out what it is like and see what all the fuss is about, the Washtenaw Rowing Center offers short learn to row classes all year round.

Thank you to our title sponsors!
