Make A Difference!

Your support of Shocker Rowing will help creat opportunities for the students of Wichita State University. 

Thanks to the vision and contributions of Shocker Rowing supporters there are now four endowed funds which have been established. These funds will help ensure the success of both current and future generations of Shocker rowers.

  • Racing Shell
    The team is in need of upgrading and expanding the small boat fleet. Small boats are critical in developing techniques. Pocock makes quality small boats. The two person shells are able to be rigged for either sweep or sculling crews.  $12,500
  • Sweep Oars
    Each year the team needs to purchase a new set of oars. As our squad size has grown to around seven 8+’s it takes a lot of oars to boat all of these athletes at the same time. Even with the purchase of a set a year that means that oars that are eight years old are in daily service. Oars are purchased in sets of ten.  $4,400 – Sweep, $800 – Scull
  • Rowing Machines
    Ergometers, rowing , machines, are a critical part of our indoor training program. These machines are heavely used year round and need to be cycled on a recular basis.  $900
  • Shell Electronics
    Technology has become an integral part of both racing and training for the sport. Electronic equipment in racing shells is now the standard. One of these valuable tools is the SpeedCoach Gold by Nielsen Kellerman. It allows us to not only measure time and rate but also distance and speed.  $269
