Skadi Reach for the greatest
Skadi is the student rowing association in Rotterdam. Founded in 1926, the club’s rich traditions are complemented by core values rooted in equality and companionship. Skadi offers a place to all students enrolled in higher education. Although the backgrounds and interests of our members are very diverse, we take pride in our common values and our heart for Skadi. Every ‘Skadiaan’ is free to make their own contribution to the association; this is possible on a rowing as well as organisational level by participating in one of our multifaceted committees.
Throughout its history, Skadi has established many traditions. These traditions ensure that our association has a strong culture and individual identity, which distinguishes it from many other societies. As an association, we value personal development on a physical and social level in an environment facilitating the development of the professional capacities of our members with a view on the future labour market.
Skadianen compete in regattas on both the national and international level. Our rowers are part of the Holland Acht, compete in the Olympic Games, World Cups, and European Championships. The excellence of our ‘wedstrijd’ sector grants you the opportunity to develop, so that one day you can write international titles to your name and contribute to Skadi's illustrious history, following in the footsteps of Koos Maasdijk, Maaike Head, Jasper Tissen, and Marieke Keijser.
Skadi facilitates a multitude of possibilities for each of our over 800 members. Whether being actively involved in one of the club’s many committees which help run the association or rowing, training, and competing intensively under supervision of professional coaches; at Skadi there are possibilities for everyone.
