Welcome to Friends of Concord Crew! We are committed to providing an all-inclusive competitive rowing experience for capital region youth. We are proud of our successes in our first decade and humble about the work yet to be accomplished. We hope this website provides the information you need to understand, join, and support Concord Crew: who we are, what we do, schedules, results, registration information and ways to pitch in. Enjoy.
Concord Crew is always looking for new coaching talent. If you have coxing or rowing experience and have the time, we would like to talk to you about joining our coaching staff. No coaching experience is necessary as we will be pleased to share the methodologies and philosophies we are developing. Get back on the water. Give back to the sport you love. Change a young athlete's life. Coach for the Friends of Concord Crew. Email Jay email@example.com.
Concord Crew provides 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 are young athletes from the greater Concord, New Hampshire, area. We have a brand new boathouse on the Merrimack River, a fleet of top notch racing shells, 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 travel to South Carolina to train in February, we run a youth summer learn-to-row program, and organize winter conditioning. We accept everyone. All rowers participate in each practice and every race. There is no "bench" at Concord Crew where we regularly exceed 100 athletes. HOORAH!!
Our next, and last, race is this weekend in Saratoga. All the information you need (schedules, maps, directions, etc.) is on the regata's website, here. Arrival time for varsity men is Saturday at 1:00; everyone else should arrive Saturday at 3:30.
Winter break will be here before you know it. Concord Crew will again travel to Camp Bob Cooper in South Carolina for a week of rowing. Information and sign-up instructions on the Forms page. Deposit is due November 25.
The first and only Concordopoly game is here! This one-of-a-kind game is sponsored by all your favorite businesses and is a great summer entertainment source and Concord memento. A great gift for business clients, the holidays, or your favorite recent graduate.
