Ridgewood Crew 2020 Fall Rowing Program

Ridgewood Crew will be providing a fall rowing program for interested youth. The program will include a returning rower - split by gender (3 days/week) and novice program (2 days/week). The program will be run from September 8 through October 31. All rowers will attend on Oct 31 for a fun end of season event. Coach Boris has reached out to other local HS team to hold fun scrimmages during the season. Note - rowers will need to provide their own transportation to/from practice. The fall program will be run following the Ridgewood Crew Covid-19 Safety Protocol (attached). We have received approval to row in multi-person boats with mandatory face masks.

Board/Committee Volunteers Needed

Ridgewood Crew needs your help! At the end of the 2020-2021 school year, there will be 3 Board Members who have senior rowers graduating. The Board positions can be done by one person, but if there are 2 individuals who would like to split the responsibilities that will work also, but one person will need to be the point person for Board representation/decisions. Also, the Fundraising Committee has immediate openings. Below are the descriptions of the volunteer oportunities and point person.
