Programs

Welcome!

Newport Rowing Club is Delaware's premier youth rowing club. Available programs range from middle school recreational rowing to high school novice and high school advanced rowing. The club draws athletes from all over Northern Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland, many of whom come in with little to no rowing experience.

In the club's 8-year history, Newport Rowing Club (NRC) has taken 21 crews to the USRowing Youth National Championships, contributed 3 athletes to US National Teams, and helped an athlete achieve a world record. NRC alumni can be found at many elite college rowing programs including Syracuse, Cal Berkeley, Dartmouth, Cornell, and Harvard.

In addition to athletic development, team culture is paramount at NRC. The coaching staff are committed to establishing a mutual respect between themselves and the athletes while maintaining a fun and positive learning environment. The coaches also teach the importance of setting and tracking your own athletic goals with daily time offered for reflection on the practice and progress toward both individual and team goals. At NRC, we train not only to be better athletes, but to be better students and citizens.

High School Programs

Youth rowing programs for high school athletes are offered all year. Main racing season is during the Fall and Spring with 4-5 races per season. New athletes will learn both disciplines of rowing, sweep and sculling, while competing against other first-year rowers around the east coast. After their first year, athletes transition into the varsity youth rowing program. This is the time to further develop technical skills, build fitness, and compete at both the local and national level. Athletes who wish to continue rowing in college have access to Head Coach John Cohn’s extensive knowledge, connections, and track record for athlete recruitment.

Middle School Programs

Middle school rowing programs are offered all year. The Fall, Winter, and Spring programs meet three days per week. These programs will develop basic rowing technique and improve fine motor skills while learning to enjoy and appreciate the world of rowing. NRC’s middle school rowing programs use rowing as a platform to become well-rounded, intelligent, and healthy athletes by focusing on proper technique, nutrition, and learning to enjoy learning. NRC’s Summer Learn to Row Camp is also opened to middle school athletes with no experience necessary. Each summer, 4 one-week sessions are offered that take young athletes from complete beginners to rowing full crew by the end of the week. This is a wonderful way to test the sport out for the first time.
