    Founded in 1996, Saint Ignatius Chicago Rowing (SICR) is the largest co-ed sport on campus and one of two sports that compete on a national level. It is a two-season sport with over 60 athletes competing each season across three squads: Novice Boys & Girls, Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys. No previous rowing experience is required to join, making the sport accessible to all who commit. Saint Ignatius Rowers have gone on to row & study at preeminent institutions across the country.

    SICR is a club sport, operating under the organization of Saint Ignatius Chicago Rowing, Inc., a nonprofit corporation managed by a parent board. We strive to keep membership dues low so that the sport of rowing can be accessible to all St. Ignatius students. Approximately 25% of our rowers are on a need-based scholarship and pay partial or no fees. To learn more visit: saintignatiuschicagorowing.org. 

    Head Rowing Coach Tony Brooks brings a lifetime love of the sport to Saint Ignatius College Prep. He was an Olympian in 1972 and 1976, and a national team competitor from 1973-1975. His crews have competed in Scholastic National Championships and the Head of the Charles most years. Coach Brooks says the goal is to instill in team members self confidence, competitive maturity and a love of rowing for life. Many graduates compete in college – PAC 12, Big 10 and Ivy League Division 1 programs.
