Buckeye Nation: Be A Champion

Novice

 

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 full-tuition scholarship and a place on the team to one individual with no rowing experience.

Ohio State Women's Rowing relies heavily on 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:
Grit and Determination
Team player
Height and long wingspan

We recognize that there is a lot of talent in the state of Ohio and many athletes who want to participate in a competitive Division 1 sport. This is a great opportunity to harness your athletic ability and to attend a top athletic and academic university. No Experience necessary!

For interested athletes Ohio State Women’s Rowing Team will hold an information session and skills clinic on January 13th 2018. There will be an opportunity to hear from athletes who started as a walk-on in college and became an NCAA Champion.

One full in-state tuition scholarship will be awarded to an eligible potential athlete for the 2018-2019 academic year. Potential athletes must have graduated high school by June 2018, must meet OSU's academic standards and be eligible for enrollment at OSU. OSU shall have the sole discretion to determine whether or not an athlete is athletically qualified to receive this scholarship and reserves the right to not award the scholarship if no qualified applicant is found.
