Knox Crew seeks to promote competitive sculling/sweeping by providing student-athletes with the opportunity to train for competition at all levels. The goal of the team is to become more competitive at larger, national-level regattas. Crew requires individual responsibility to fitness so that the team, as a whole, may become stronger and more successful. All team members should contribute to each other's progress and success by developing a disciplined work ethic, striving for more self-discipline, building on improvements made though consistent daily effort, and maintaining a consistent desire to achieve greatness. Motivating each other and working together builds a stronger crew!

Knox owns high quality rowing equipment including racing shells, carbon fiber oars, and cox boxes. The team owns coaching launches and engines. When using equipment, students are responsible for proper use and care of all equipment.
