Kansas State Men’s Crew has training and competition opportunities for male and female student athletes at Kansas State University. No rowing experience  is necessary, just a willingness to try something new and a desire to improve yourself.


Come train with the crew!  Monday through Friday 5:15pm to 7:15pm.

Currently located at 116 S 4th St. Look for the door to the Combative Sports Center. Once Tuttle Creek Lake thaws, we’ll move back out to the KSU Boathouse at 7560 Spillway Marina Rd.

Kansas State Men’s Crew was founded by Don Rose in 1963. Rose had been a Wisconsin coxswain and had coached at Princeton and Columbia. He came back to Manhattan and founded the Wildcat Crew as the first rowing program in the Midwest.

The Women’s Crew was founded in 1974.

In 1986, the first Kansas State Rowing Association Junior (high school) rowers took to the water and later became known as Manhattan Junior Crew.

The Women’s Crew became an NCAA program in 1994 as K-State Rowing, and KSMC became co-ed for non-NCAA women.

The Men’s Crew is not sponsored by the K-State Athletics Department, but is a member of Kansas State Rowing Association, American Collegiate Rowing Association, and US Rowing Association.

Head Coach: Wesley Good

Assistant Coach: Linda Graham
