We are Texas Crew

We are the University of Texas at Austin student-run club rowing team. We row on Lady Bird Lake in Austin, TX six days of the week at 5:15 in the morning. We strive to promote athletic excellence within our school and to promote the sport of rowing in our community. Every year our student athletes outperform themselves both on and off the water, balancing their dedication to the team with their studies in college.

What Happened?

Our boats were in transit to Oklahoma City for the Stars and Stripes Regatta on June 22nd. An accident on the road ended up with us losing three boats, oars, and our trailer. Luckily, no one was hurt in the accident. We ended up losing some of our most valuable equipment, which we desperately needed for the upcoming Fall rowing season.

This is a serious issue for the team. As a student-run organization, we rely on donations and fundraisers to keep our crew ready for every practice and regatta. Without these boats we will be hard pressed to send all of our team to regattas, and without the trailer we have no way to transport our boats. We are of course relieved that no one was harmed in the accident, but we are still torn that we are now in this position, even more so as we prepare to welcome a new novice class of rowers in the Fall.

How Can You Help?

You can help us by supporting Texas Crew Foundations, our alumni association. They are a 501-c3 nonprofit solely dedicated to supporting Texas Crew. Every donation you give us will go straight into helping us rebuild our fleet. Collegiate rowing is a wonderful sport. It permits students to excel during their time in college. We could definitely use your help.

Many thanks,

David Garza
