Introducing Studentsatsningen

We are so excited to announce more information about our recruitment project, Studentsatsningen 

Uppsala Academic Rowing Society wants to build a stronger club and community. We want more students from Uppsala University (UU) and Swedish Agricultural University (SLU) to experience the joy of rowing. We are therefore carrying out a recruitment project aimed at this group over the course of three semesters, from July 2020 to December 2021.

We also want to develop UARS so that both new and old members feel welcome regardless of ambition level as well as gender identity, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexuality or age. A more inclusive club to put it simply. We want inclusion to be a natural conversation topic within the topic and an obvious attitude in our club.

These are the goals of the project:

  • 75 students try rowing during our recruitment days 
  • 30 students become members of the club during the course of the project
  • UARS becomes a more inclusive club in line with the discrimination grounds and members' ambition levels 
  • Vi build a stronger community in UARS through common activities where all members feel welcome 
  • We have training opportunities for all ambition levels, from beginners to elites
  • More coach-led sessions 

The new members will get memories for life through regular training on Uppsala's most beautiful training facility, Fyrisån. Alongside students from different backgrounds they will towards common goals such as winning medals at Student Nationals and beating Lund in the annual Swedish Boat Race. Studentsatsningen is also in line with the Swedish Rowing Federation's focus on the "Super-8"ahead of the Olympics in 2024 where the hope is to recruit future elite rowers from Sweden's universities.

Rowing is a classic student sport in many countries, and we want to make rowing a more obvious part of the student life in Uppsala. UARS was founded as a student association and we want to re-focus on the student rowing section of the club, at the same time as the club is open for everyone who wants to row in Uppsala.

UARS works hard to become a bigger and stronger club, which will benefit both current and future members. We are working alongside RF-SISU Uppland to become a more inclusive and welcoming club so that new and old members choose to stay with us. We are also in the process of planning a new clubhouse by the river, which will contribute to the development of student rowers for many years. 

Recruitment is something that a student sports association always needs to take into consideration. With this project we want to do a mer focused campaign to recruit new members who are students. We are inspired by a previous successful project in the club, Tjejsatsningen in 2011-2012. During that project we recruited more than 25 women to the club thanks to strong support from SAIF. This campaign made it possible to buy a fantastic women's eight. Juni is still Sweden's nicest eight in this weight class. 

In conjunction with our participation at the European University Rowing Championships (EUSA) in September 2019 the dream of another recruitment project was born. Also with support from SAIF but with the focus of recruiting students to rowing.
