Traditionally, we would be gearing up to introduce our new recruits and walk-on athletes to the team and embark into Fall training. However, this year is anything but traditional. We have been doing our best, working within University guidelines to insure our athletes safety; adapting, as I know you all have in your own lives. Yet despite the lack of time on the water and the frustrations of not being able to row together in team boats—and with the seemingly “no-end-in-sight” mental [...]

2020 Season Recap

The idea behind these two mantras is to go beyond the perceived physical and mental limits that can confine in every rower. With the rowing season coming to an abrupt end due to COVID-19, we have not deviated from our championship mindset. We continue to train remotely for the next season and dominate the [...]

COVID-19 Update

  Coach Brooks' Update… Speaking of Senior For those who are unaware, all Spring Sports at UCI have been suspended due the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, as time passed, all collegiate spring sports, including the entire collegiate rowing season nationwide, was cancelled. I've typed and deleted this message around 100 times because I'm still in disbelief. I know that we all are, even as we all figure out how to adjust to this new normal.

Below is a letter from our CPA office explaining the issue in detail and the steps we have taken to resolve it with the IRS. If you [...]

Today, that’s $1,500 / year. It takes $150,000 per year to keep the boathouse doors open. That means we only need 100 of these VIP donors to join the team. The recurring support from Team 100 will go directly to funding our coaching staff and help sustain the growth of UCI Crew. [...]
