Concord Crew provides Capital Region middle and high school students 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.
Dear Friends of Concord Crew,
Due to the continuing restrictions on gatherings for COVID-19, Concord Crew has cancelled the first session of our Summer Learn to Row program. We are hopeful we may be able to still hold our second session, that starts mid July. We are monitoring the advice the Governor and CDC are providing and will make a decision on the second session at the beginning of July. The board and coaches are all disappointed, as we all want to get out onto the water.
The loss of an entire season's worth of registration fees is tough for a small program like ours. We know that many of our member families are going through a difficult financial period as well. If you are able, please consider making a donation to the club from your refund. It would help us cover the fixed costs like insurance, land rental, and boat/trailer registrations. If you are able to make a donation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your rower, your name, how you paid for your registration, and the amount you can donate. Any donation amount you indicate will be deducted from your refund. We want to process refunds as soon as possible, so please email your donation amount now. Thanks!
If you don't have a kid in the program now, but would still like to help, please follow this link to donate.
Thanks for your tireless support, and stay healthy,
Friends of Concord Crew president on behalf of the board and coaches.
