We're ALWAYS looking for great coxswains, and we offer special club benefits to our coxswains as well! No matter what your experience is cox'ing in the past, we would love to have you. So reach out!
If you are one of those unfortunate souls to have never experienced rowing and being a part of an exceptional boathouse before... you may now rest your oars! Your time has come!
The Wharton Crew Team offers novice rowers the ability to learn the basics of rowing prior to the start of our fall racing season. This gets everyone in our novice 8 person boat, "The Wharton Weaver," on the same page. We have our experienced coaches teach you everything from how to get in to the boat to the fundamentals of the stroke. It also offers the opportunity for you to try out rowing with the club prior to committing to the payment of dues.
