2019 - Eastern Michigan Rowing

Dear Friends, Family, and Alumnae of EMU Rowing, 

To win a Conference Championship, we need to be in the top two in the First 8+, Second 8+ and First 4+. It takes competitive equipment to get there including: three boats, 20 oars, 40 shoes, and 23 rowers to win. However, it only takes one mindset - A Championship Mindset. That's the bar we are setting for our athletes, and we need to hold our equipment to the same standard.

We are asking for your help to take this program to the level our team desires and deserves. Your contributions directly affect the success of this squad and will mean the world to your fellow Eagles. We are crowdfunding to help offset costs for the following items:

1.) Boat Shoes

Every seat in the boat is fixed with its own shoes. Each morning, your athletes tie their feet into these shoes in preparation for their practice. The quality of those shoes makes a huge difference in their performance. 




2.) Travel Uniforms

There is something to be said about a team stepping off of the bus in sharp, matching attire. It sets up the day of racing for success showing first hand that we are unified on and off the water. 




3.) Oars 

Boats cannot be propelled forward without them and neither can our program. We aim to buy eight brand new oars in order to retire an old set and enter into a new era of Eastern Michigan Rowing. 


4.) Ergs

About half of our season is spent indoors on an ergometer. These machines put our team’s grit and resilience to the test while supplying the necessary training for when we cannot be on the water. Our team is growing exponentially and it is pivotal our fleet of ergs does the same.




5.) A Seat in a New 4+

A 4+ boat is about $25,000. We are giving you an opportunity to help with a seat of that boat. With your support, we can purchase a boat to match the championship standards which are already ingrained in our athletes. 

Thank you for your consideration in helping us reach our goals!
