CAMDEN COUNTY, NJ — Temple University will hold the 2023 NCAA Divisions I, II, and III Women’s Rowing Championships at Camden County's Cooper River Park in 2023.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) made the decision official last Wednesday.

“We are honored to be hosting the 2023 NCAA Women’s Rowing Championships at one of the nation’s finest rowing venues,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Parks Department, said Monday. “Cooper River Park has evolved and grown into an elite rowing course with the best straight away lanes in the country and very little current. We are looking forward to having athletes, teams and families come and stay with us for this momentous event and accommodating the top rowers competing at the highest levels in the United States.”
