Rowing Programming


Northampton Community Rowing is pleased to announce the hiring of Todd Gocken as Director of Programs and Head Coach. Todd comes to us from Chicago where he worked as the Program Director for the Chicago Training Center. Todd has also coached at Northwestern University (2015) and the University of Illinois (2012-2014). Todd began his own rowing career as a founding member of the Wabash College Rowing Club in 1991 and rowed with the Lincoln Park Boat Club's competitive men’s rowing team in the early 2000's. Todd was selected by the search committee because of his passion for coaching and clear vision of NCR’s potential as a regional leader in rowing and quiet water sports. Todd will be head coach of the youth teams starting this March.
