National Learn to Row Day

Come join us at the boathouse to try the sport of rowing. Whether it is your first time rowing or "it's been a long time" we would love to take you out in a big 8. Please come down, bring a friend and see what it is about. For more information



Concord Crew had a phenomenal weekend of racing at The Northeast Regional Championships in Worcester, MA. 2 days of racing, 30 races total for Concord Crew with 55 rowers and coxswains participating.   9 Concord Crew athletes qualified for Nationals coming home with a GOLD (Travis Garside/Seth Lowne),  a silver (Andrew Blagden/Jaxson Conway), a bronze (Francis Butterfield), and a 4th place (Tess Lavoie/Emma Burnett/Francis Lesser/Maddie Wineriter). All will go to the weeklong competition in Florida this June. Concord Crew rocks! Come join our club this summer or fall.

National Learn to Row Day is coming up June 3rd at the Whittemore Boathouse 9 - 1. Open to all.

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 27+ 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!

  • "Hands On"
  • Coxswain: driver, cheerleader, on-water coach
  • Happy Coaches make happy, productive rowers!
  • Shells and Launches put away for the winter.
