Notre Dame Welcomes New Assistant Athletic Director and Director of Crew

The Academy of Notre Dame de Namur is thrilled to welcome Rachael Tobinus as the new Assistant Athletic Director and Director of Crew. 

Tobinus graduated from Thomas Jefferson University, receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Community and Trauma Counseling. 

After a 3-year rowing career in high school, Tobinus continued with her passion for crew as a member of Jefferson’s women's rowing team for four years.

Prior to joining the Notre Dame community, Tobinus served as a crew coach for Philadelphia City Rowing's middle school for one season. She also was a full-time assistant coach with novice rowers at St. Joseph’s University from 2019 - 2021 and then at Thomas Jefferson while she was a graduate assistant. Tobinus was also a part-time assistant at TJU this past fall. 

“It is exciting to see how serious the girls are about athletics [at Notre Dame] because I am, too,” Tobinus said. 

Tobinus is excited to be part of the “athletic successes of Notre Dame” and to help shape the next generation of rowers.
