Our Marathon Row & Spring 2014 Fund Drive are Underway!

Members of the team kicked-off our Spring Fund Drive on April 26 by completing a Marathon Row from Albany to the Federal Dam in Troy and back! Please contribute to our efforts!

Our Story

Who We Are
We are an independent rowing club comprised largely of students that attend the University at Albany. However, we do not receive any financial support or recognition from the University or student government - we are COMPLETELY independent!

What We Do
Albany Crew competes alongside some of the top collegiate programs in the Northest and New England. Most of these teams are NCAA teams sponsored and supported by their respective Athletic Department.

Where are We Going
Our aim is straight forward - to compete alongside the top collegiate crews in the nation.

Why Do We Row?
There are many reasons. The life-long friendships; the challenge; teamwork; and being part of something greater and any one individual. Crew provides us significance and depth in a world dominated by messages of 140 characters or less. The opportunity to compete, particulary the training that goes along with it, is inexetrictably linked to our life-long success.

How Can You Help?

Without institutional support, it is our responsibility to raise the funds we need to train and compete. Please consider sponsoring a day for the Practice Bus for $100. Or an Entry at our Regional Championships for $185. No amount is too small. $5 supports the fuel cost of one practice for a safety launch (coaches boat); $25 helps pays for towing our boats to a local race; $30 funds that safety lauch for an entire week $40 provides a replacement fin for a boat; and $50 replaces a worn-out pair of shoes with new ones.
