Support the Newport Rowing Club

Ways to Get Involved

Make a donation!

We run a lean and mean operation here at NRC, in terms of athletics and organizational expenses, so reductions in our revenue hit us hard. After canceling our formal 2020 Spring season, we refunded the majority of the season’s dues. Many families donated generous portions of their refund back to the club which has sustained us for the past year, keeping the rent, staff salaries, and other bills paid! With your contribution, NRC athletes will not only have continued structure and support from our dedicated staff, but they will have a top-notch organization with consistent coaching staff and reliable equipment during these tough times.

Who are you supporting?

In less than three (3) months the Newport Rowing Club went from just a dream to a full-fledged rowing club with a new fleet of boats, a boathouse, launches, oars, a coaching staff of 4, and more than 45 rowers. Today, NRC represents numerous middle schools and high schools in Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

Our inaugural fall season had NRC competing in regattas along the Christina River in Wilmington (Head of the Christina), Boathouse Row (Navy Day, Frostbite, and Bill Braxton), the Charles River in Boston (Head of the Charles), and the Chattahoochee River in Chattanooga (Head of the Hooch). Now entering our 11th year, we are 40 athletes strong with a number of accomplishments for which we are proud –

  • One athlete who held the World Record for marathon on indoor rower from 2013 to 2017.
  • Two athletes to Nationals in 2015 placing 5th in the country.
  • Two athletes to Nationals in our first year (2010), placing 6th in the country.
  • Athletes to Nationals in every season to date, 5 of which finished in the top 10 in the country.
  • An athlete selected to the 2014 CanAmMex US Junior National Team representing the US in the CanAmMex Regatta in Nova Scotia.
  • An athlete selected to the 2012 US Junior National Team, representing the US in the World Championship Regatta, in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
  • Athletes rowing at the Harvard University, Cornell, Dartmouth, Syracuse, California Berkley,  Naval Academy, Ohio State, University of Texas, Boston University, University of Delaware, University of Massachusetts, Bucknell, Drexel, Rollins College, Loyola, Temple, St Joseph's, and more!

The Newport Rowing Club has had some impressive accomplishments throughout the years but we did not do it alone! We need your support to continue to provide opportunities for athletes to succeed in rowing at the level of their choice.
