Chula Vista, CA – The University of Southern California’s (USC) Women’s Rowing Team held a training camp at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center (CVEATC) from March 15 through 18. During their stay at the CVEATC, USC women’s rowing will be training on our lake, gym, dining and staying overnight during their stay on campus.
The NCAA Rowing season has just begun, and the Women of Troy are coming off a big win over cross town rival UCLA, starting the season 2-0. Next up for the USC women’s rowing team is the San Diego Crew Classic on March 26th. The CVEATC is excited to host USC women’s rowing for the very first time and wish them the best of luck throughout the NCAA rowing season.
USC’s women’s rowing team has been around since the early 1970’s, however, they weren’t awarded scholarships until the 1998 season. Since then, USC has emerged as one of the best rowing programs in the country. The Women of Troy train in the historic Port of Los Angeles, near San Pedro. They won their first national championship race (varsity fours) in 1998, the only one to date. As a team, they have finished in the top ten of the NCAA Championship 6 times, including a program best fourth in 2013. Josh Adams of Washington State has been the Head Coach since the 2018 season.
