Breaking Barriers to Support Diversity in the Sport of Rowing.

Who we are

At Evanston High School Rowing, our core mission is to enhance diversity, equity, and access to competitive high school rowing in the Evanston community. We envision a coed team that reflects the rich diversity of Evanston, where athletes from any background can compete. 


Through the collaborative efforts of the ETHS Athletic Department and local community organizations, we work towards creating an inclusive and accessible space where student-athletes of all backgrounds feel welcomed and able to succeed in our sport.

Why Join ETHS Rowing 

ETHS Rowing is one of the only public school rowing clubs in the Chicagoland area. We are a new team to the Chicago area rowing community and therefore have the incredible opportunity to build a new, inclusive rowing culture for present and future Wildkits. 


By joining, you become part of a close-knit community dedicated to reshaping the landscape of the sport and the larger Evanston community. Our aim is to encourage every individual to participate and thrive, foster personal growth, and cultivate lifelong skills in a safe, fun, and competitive setting. Together, we can inspire the next generation of rowers in Evanston.

How to Support Us

ETHS Rowing is dedicated to making rowing accessible and inclusive to all. Our dedication to breaking barriers of exclusivity means that we do not gatekeep access to the sport of rowing because of an inability to pay. That means that we do not charge excessive fees to participate. Our community stays open to all because of the generosity of folks like you. Help us to keep our community financially strong by donating today.

2024 ETHS Rowing - Fall Season

Fall Season

Varsity tryouts are for returning athletes and will be held August 12th-17th. Both Boy's and Girl's Varsity tryouts are one week long with water and land components. Full attendance is required for consideration of a roster spot.

All new athletes start as novices on the Club group - no previous experience is required to join rowing. Novices are no-tryout and no-cut. This group begins August 19th.    

As a requirement of participation at any level, all student-athletes are evaluated on their swimming abilities in the Water Safety Test at the start of season to ensure they can safely participate. Learn more about the Varsity tryout criteria here.
