ERG Times for a Rowing / Crew Scholarship

What ERG Time do I need for a Rowing Scholarship?

ERG Times for a Scholarship
ERG for a Scholarship?

There has been a great rise in rowing participation in the U.S., with many high school students focused on the dream of rowing in college.  This site has some fantastic stats on the number of rowing scholarships and schools that offer them, as well as some eye opening percentages:

So what kind of ERG times do coaches look for?  Below is a summary of 2K ERG times I could glean from the web:

Heavyweight men: 6:30 and below gets you noticed, 6:10 will get them calling
Lightweight Men: 6:40 and below gets you noticed, top recruits are sub 6:30
to 6:20.
Heavyweight Women: 7:20 – 7:30 is considered good, 7:15 – 7:10 very good, 7:09 and below
is excellent
Lightweight Women:  Below 7:50 is good, 7:40 and under is considered excellent
