Other head races and regattas such as Head of the Charles or the Pac Championships allow a wide variety of competition in less-prominent boat classifications such as pair, sculls, and lightweight racing.
There has been spectacular growth in women's rowing over the past 25 years. In , the FISA and Olympic course distance for women was increased from 1, meters to 2, meters the same distance raced by men , marking progress in public perception of women's strength, endurance and competitive drive. Universities that have never had a men's team have added women's rowing to the athletic department and are providing funding and athletic scholarships for the expensive and demanding sport, contributing to a noticeable increase in the success and competitiveness of many collegiate women's rowing teams.
This, in part, is to comply with Title IX ; many of the football powers use women's rowing to help balance out the large number of scholarships awarded to male football players. As a result, many women's college rowers have not previously competed at high school or for a club team. To allow average-sized rowers to best compete against their peers, the rowing governing boards set up a category for lightweight rowing. There are races for both men's and women's lightweight rowing.

However, many of the smaller colleges have limited sized programs and simply field open weight boats, which include rowers who would qualify as lightweights. At many of the larger universities, where the competition to make a boat is intense, lightweight programs often don't exist, and if they do, they are typically underfunded club sports.
This has not always been the case, however, as many lightweight programs have deteriorated or disappeared over time. This is especially apparent in the west, where California Lightweight Crew remains the sole program for men's lightweight rowing. Lightweight events have recently been added to the Olympics. This is usually combined with freshman rowers, who may have rowed before in high school, but are in their first year in collegiate rowing.
The Freshman squad is sometimes open only to college freshmen. However, people who start rowing after their freshman year normally join the novice team as well. At the IRA Steward's annual meeting it was voted to repeal the ban on freshmen competing as part of their varsity squad.
Annual calendar[ edit ] Rowing is one of the few collegiate sports where athletes practice year round and compete during both spring and fall. In addition many athletes train at various rowing clubs around the country during the summer. Fall[ edit ] In the fall, most schools focus on building technical proficiency and improving physical strength and endurance.
This is typically accomplished through long steady practice pieces, with occasional shorter interval pieces. In the United States fall is also the season of head races which are typically between three and six kilometers. These longer races are part of the foundation for the spring season, building the rower's endurance and mental toughness. This race includes rowers of all ages, abilities, and affiliations and features the best college crews in competition with Olympic-level athletes from the United States and other countries.
Winter[ edit ] This is an intense building period for the spring racing season. The training regimen consists primarily of long interval training, which gradually becomes shorter and more intense as the race season approaches. This is done on the water for schools below the snowline. And for some of the northern colleges that practice on lakes and rivers which are frozen during winter, these pieces are done using ergometers and, if the college is lucky enough to have them, rowperfect rowing simulators and indoor rowing tanks.
Additionally, most schools, regardless of whether they have water to row on, do ergometer testing all out maximum performance test , weights, stadium stairs and long runs. This 2, meter race is held on ergometers and features separate events for collegiate athletes. Many northeastern colleges have a winter training trip to a warmer state such as Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas during either winter break or spring break to give students extra time on the water while the local rivers and lakes are frozen.
Spring[ edit ] Spring is the primary season for college rowing, and the majority of the schedule is composed of dual races. These 2,meter races take place between two, or sometimes three, schools. The winner of these races usually receive shirts from the losing teams. In this case, the teams compete in either flights, in which the winner is final, or a series of heats and semifinals before the winners move on to the finals. Sprint races begin with all teams lined up and started simultaneously, as opposed to the time trials in the fall.
Performing well in these races is the most important selection criteria for the various post season invitation rowing championships. Are you an existing customer?
