Stetson University Crew Boathouse is located in DeLand, Florida along Lake Beresford. The center is home to the Stetson University Crew who have many recent achievements including a Dad Vail medal in the Women's Varsity 4. The facility also serves as a training site for both international and U.S. college crew teams, including the Canadian Women’s National Team.

Facilities[edit]

The ten acre facility borders Lake Beresford and features a boathouse for storage, as well as, erg machines and coaches' launches. The lake itself is approximately two miles long and about half a mile wide. The St. Johns River flows through the lake making it rowable north to Jacksonville, Florida (about 100 miles) or south to Melbourne, Florida (about 200 miles). The lake is ideal for rowing; the water is protected and has no tidal action and minimal current.

Central Florida provides perfect training conditions year round. During the training season it rarely rains. Average temperatures are 70-80’s degrees for highs and 45-55’s degrees for lows.
