Concord Rowing Club receives a grant from New Castle County and Councilman Bob Weiner

The Concord Rowing Club plans to purchase a new coaching launch, oars and other equipment, thanks to a generous grant from New Castle County.

Concord Rowing Club is club crew team for Concord High School, and like all high school rowing clubs who receive no high school funding for the sport, they are appreciative of outside grants and donations.

District 2 Councilman Robert S. Weiner presented a $1,200 grant award to the 30 team members at the boathouse at the Wilmington Rowing Center last week.

“With the new coaching launch, our athletes will have greater individualized attention, and the new oars will help easily identify our team during practice and in regattas,” said CRC head coach Holly Dodge. “We are so appreciative of the grant from Councilman Weiner, which will really enhance our athletes’ rowing experience.”

Crew is not traditionally a high school team sport in Delaware. So schools must form Clubs (or students join clubs) in order to compete. The non-profit Concord Rowing Club formed in 2002 and is dedicated to developing and teaching high school students the art and sport of competitive rowing.  Concord Rowing Club has competed in regattas on the Christina River, the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, throughout New Jersey, and even the Head of the Charles in Boston.

In spring 2016, the team’s JV boys 4+ finished 3rd in Philadelphia Scholastic Rowing Association’s City Championships. And on October 23, 2016, the team’s Varsity 4+ girls team is heading to Boston to compete in the Head of the Charles Regatta – the world’s largest two-day rowing event.
