Welcome Back Rowers! The Fall Season has Begun...

A new season is underway down at the boathouse with new faces and new races. We are pleased to see over 50 young rowers signed up to participate this Fall including 18 new middle school scullers and 17 novice rowers. There are also over 50 adult rowers in morning, evening, and sculling programs. New rowers are also joining us in our Learn To Row Programs.

The team has already gotten off to a fast start with youth and adult boats competing successfully at the Rockrimmon Regatta in Springfield and the CRI Fall Classic in Boston.  

This coming weekend (September 23rd) we will join our friends at Holyoke Rows for the Paper City Regatta where our youth and adult rowers will compete on the Connecticut River. More regattas follow including the Head of the Riverfront, Head of the Housatonic (Adults only), Northeast Regionals (Youth only), the Hadley Chase (Adults only), The Head of the Charles, and The Head of the Fish!

Annual Ergathon is April 8!

Northampton Community Rowing will be holding its annual fundraiser The Northampton Community Rowing Ergathon on the lawn of the Hampshire Council of Gov’t building at 99 main St. in Northampton on April 8, 2017. Our members are currently out soliciting pledges for rowing for 20 minutes on ergometers (rowing machines or “ergs”). Throughout the day our rowers will be fulfilling their committments on the rowing machines while our coaches, captains and board members interact with the community and answer questions about the event, our organization and opportunities to learn to row or join a rowing team in the Valley.

This year we have 3 teams: Team Blue , Team Gold and Team Masters.  Team Blue and Team Gold are members of the  youth rowing team, and Team Masters is comprised of our adult rowers. Please follow the links above to see the members of each team and learn more about them.

New Session and Financial Assistance

We'd like to remind  to all competitive rowers that the next session begins July 11 and that they should re-register now on Regatta Central. Every year the NCR Board of Directors makes funds available for financial assistance to rowers in the annual budget. These funds are awarded by the Executive Committee, with priority going to youth rowers, based on a review of requests. Adult rowers with financial need may also apply for assistance. To request financial assistance in meeting your program fees, send a short, written statement of interest to president@hampcrew.com. The deadline for applying for assistance for the next session is July 11. Decisions will be made by July 14. New This Session: Program Discounts for Session Volunteers! The Board of Directors has implemented a new volunteer rewards program to help our growing organization accomplish specific, hard-to-complete jobs while assisting adult rowers in keeping program fees down.  Each session the Director of Programs will develop a list of volunteer jobs and will accept applications for Session Volunteers.  Volunteers who are appropriately skilled to complete the jobs will be expected to commit 10 hours of time on assigned responsibilities over a six week period.  Session Volunteers will receive 30% discount on their program fees for that six-week session. If you can donate 10 hours to Hamp Crew email Todd at headcoach@hampcrew.com to let him know you are interested in being a Session Volunteer. Todd will try to pair you with a job that suits your abilities.

 Current rowing board members include Nora Blake (interim treasurer and past president), Gloria DiFulvio (member), Wendy Bernstein (member), Jennifer Walters (member) and Dorrie Brooks (president).
