Description:

Saint Ignatius Chicago Rowing (SICR) continues to remain one of the most highly recognized student athletic programs as they head into the 2017-2018 Season, although rowing is a sport rarely offered in Chicagoland schools. With an impressive roster of coaches including former Olympians and Ivy League rowers, SICR is one of the top national competitive rowing programs in the city, offering male and female students the opportunity to foster confidence and character development. Athletes come from various socio-economic backgrounds, and approximately 25% of rowers are on need-based scholarship and pay no fees (or partial fees).SICR remains a club that is separate from the school and is an entirely self-funded 501C3. SICR has the largest number of athletes participating of any school sport. The club has won numerous national awards, most recently obtaining a Silver Medal in the Frogtown Regatta in Toledo, Ohio.
