Why Rowing?


With more and more high school rowing programs popping up across the country, it’s no surprise to see collegiate rowing growing as well. Like most sports, each has it’s own appeal and the transition to college is a great opportunity for some former high school athletes to try out a new sport. While most collegiate walk-ons join rowing for a multitude of reasons, what is it about rowing that people fall in love with?

Our World Class Facilities

The H Del Beekley Boathouse is connected to Mission Bay Aquatic Center and has three boat bays that house both the Men’s & Women’s Crew for San Diego State. Located on the beautiful waters of Mission Bay near the heart of San Diego, we are blessed to row in one of rowing’s greatest cities on it’s finest body of water.

We currently have a boathouse centered around sweep rowing with 7 Eight-oar shells and 4 Four-oar shells available for daily use.  Ergometers are available at the boathouse in the incredibly rare case that weather impacts our practice. Other amenities available at the H Del Beekley Boathouse and attached MBAC are a Men’s & Women’s lockerroom with showers as well as classrooms where the team can gather for meetings and video review sessions.

The Ergometer Room is located on campus on the North side of Peterson Gym, just across the street from the ARC. The room possesses 40 state-of-the-art ergometers for use in teaching and training both Novice and Varsity rowers. Mirrors on the walls and access to video review allows the team to monitor your athletic progress while giving you the feedback you need to reach your goals.

Located on campus in Peterson Gym across from the Aztec Recreation Center, our dedicated weight room houses all the equipment needed to assist rowers getting in the physical shape they need to compete at the highest level.
