Who is Newport Rowing Club?

For the past 10 years, Newport Rowing Club in Delaware has worked to provide education, training, instruction, and participation in amateur rowing while developing the healthy minds, bodies, and character of student athletes. Our current team includes athletes from over 25 high schools and middle schools all over Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

Why Are We Fundraising?

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. As many of you know, we had to cancel our formal Spring season and refund 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 month, keeping the rent, staff salaries, and other bills paid!

With your additional support, NRC athletes will not only have continued structure and support from our dedicated staff now, but they will have a top-notch organization with consistent coaching staff ready to resume training in person as soon as we are able.
