About Us


The Dinos rowing team is an incredibly supportive, hard-working, dedicated group of people. Racing against universities from across Canada, the Dinos have achieved a national ranking that rivals many of our school's varsity teams. We succeed through our values of Dedication, Respect, Positivity, and Courage.

Why Row?

In just a few short years, the team has grown from a very small core of enthusiastic members to a legitimate contender in Canadian University Rowing. As a Dinos rower, you are part of a legacy in the making!


In 2015, the Dinos women ranked 5th overall at the Canadian University Rowing Championships, including a historical 4th-place finish in the women's eight. This marked the first time that a Dinos women's eight finished in the top six, which led to the best-ever overall ranking for the Dinos team. The U of C has also put three alumni on the Canadian Olympic Rowing Team, including 2000 Olympians Bryan Donnelly and Mike Belenkie and 2008 Olympic bronze medallist Tracy Cameron.


Our dinos athletes are selling West Jet tickets to any where in the world. One (1) roundtrip flight for two two (2) guests to any regularly scheduled and marketed WestJet destination! It is $5 for 1 ticket, they are selling fast so contact our team quickly (rowing@ucalgary.ca) if you want a chance to win. The draw is March 17th, 2018 at 10pm - University of Calgary.
