USRowing Names 2023 Under 19 National Team Roster


USRowing is pleased to announce the 53-person roster of the 2023 Under 19 National Team that will represent the U.S. in Paris, France, next month. 

The 2023 World Rowing Under 19 Championships will be held August 2-6 in Paris, at the Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium, which will host the Olympic rowing and canoe-kayak events and the Paralympic rowing and canoe-kayak events in 2024. 

The U.S. will have crews competing in 12 events including the men’s and women’s single sculls, quadruple sculls, pair, four with coxswain, and eight, as well as the women’s double sculls and men’s four. The U.S. will not be sending boats in the men’s double sculls or women’s four.

At the 2022 World Rowing Under 19 Championships held in Varese, Italy, the U.S. won three medals to rank fourth in the World Rowing medal standings and sixth in the total medal count. The U.S. set World Rowing Under 19 Championships’ best times in winning the women’s eight and women’s four with coxswain, while the men’s eight took home a bronze medal. Nine athletes return from the 2022 U19 squad.

The U19 roster includes athletes from 15 states. California leads the way with 15 athletes, while New York has six.
