The Ohio State Women's Rowing Team has a great opportunity for the best female athlete in the State of Ohio. We are awarding a 2018 full in-state tuition scholarship and a place on the team to one individual with no rowing experience*.

Ohio State Women's Rowing relies heavily on tall high school athletes that are excited to try something new and determined to be champions. We can give the right athlete what they need to know to be part of one of the most competitive Division 1 programs in the country. In 2017, 8 of the 24 rowers that competed at the NCAA Championship started on the novice team. Currently, 9 seniors started as walk-ons in college and they each have three Big 10 Team Championship titles.

Athletes with the potential to be a rower are:
Height and long wingspan
Grit and Determination
Strong Work Ethic Team player

This is a great opportunity for competitive, team minded athletes to attend a top athletic and academic university. No experience necessary! In the novice (first) year at Ohio State new rowers gain the skill, culture and fitness to be successful competing at the NCAA Division 1 level.

For interested athletes Ohio State Women's Rowing Team will hold an information session and skills clinic on February 17th, 2018. In addition to an introduction to rowing skills there will be an opportunity to hear from athletes who started as walk-ons in college and became NCAA Champions.
