Rowing to Hold Informational Meeting for Potential Walk-Ons Tuesday
Sept. 3, 2012
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Alabama women's rowing team is holding an informational meeting for current full-time Alabama students who are interested in becoming NCAA Division I athletes.
The rowing program is looking for athletic, hardworking, highly competitive and dedicated women to join the 2012-13 Tide team. This is not a club team - this is a varsity program, and those who make the team could potentially earn a scholarship.
The informational meeting for potential walk-ons will be held Tuesday, Sept. 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the Bill Battle Academic Center at Bryant Hall in Room 247. In addition to providing information about the program and what it takes to be an Alabama rower, those that are interested will have the opportunity to fill out NCAA paperwork and begin the process of becoming a UA student-athlete.
No prior rowing experience is needed to join the team and those that make the cut could be competing for Alabama as an NCAA Division I student-athlete in less than six weeks.
More information is available on the rowing page of RollTide.com under the walk-on link or by contact assistant coach Derek Tuten (firstname.lastname@example.org or 348.6476).
