Welcome!

Concord Crew provides middle and high school students and adults from Concord ....and the surrounding areas (this is NOT a Concord High School sport) with the opportunity to experience all the sport of rowing has to offer: competition, team building, fitness, community service and, yes, fun. We accept young athletes from the greater Concord, New Hampshire, area. We row from our Whittemore Boathouse on the Merrimack River in a fleet of top notch racing shells, with an experienced coaching staff and incredible support from the parents and friends of Concord Crew. We attend several fall races each year (usually including the Textile River Regatta, the NH Championships and the Head of the Fish), a full slate of spring races (including the Crimson Cup, the Sleigh Cup in Hanover, and the Saratoga Invitational), we run a youth summer learn-to-row program and organize winter conditioning.

We have also recently added programs for Adults. These programs are for anyone 18+ yrs of age with or without experience. The coaches start from the beginning of how to row, focusing on learning the technique correctly first. There currently are adult summer sessions with a fall season, meeting 2-3 times a week. Check it out by visiting the registration page for details!

This summer Concord Crew is offering several program for experienced rowers. These are coached by Head Coach Steve Garside. 

Detailed program descriptions are provided on the registration pages available at the links provided below.

Summer Collegiate and Club Competitive Rowing

Summer Technical Recreation Rowing

Semi Private Lessons

Looking to learn to row or improve your skill on the water. Head Coach Steve Garside is offering two (2) hour lessons for two (2) people available. You will go out in Doubles and/or Pairs to learn the finer points of rowing a shell. The focus will be on technique and efficiency of rowing a shell. Learning in the small shells carries over to all other larger boats and will improve your performance in all shells.

If you have more people and want to do a larger boat with a certain group of people that can be accommodated also.

For costs, more information please reach out to: Steven.Garside@concordcrew.org.
