What inspired you to go to your first rowing practice; was there anything memorable about it?  

My mom encouraged me to go to my first rowing practice in high school because I was tall and strong, and I ended up rowing for Moorestown Rowing Club for four years. We erged out of a teammate's garage in the winter, and the boats were kept outside all year, inside a barbed wire fence. Now, they have a beautiful boathouse; they've also come a long way in recent years.

Moorestown Crew is a New Jersey nonprofit corporation that is parent-sponsored to provide training and competition in the sport of rowing for students of Moorestown High School in Moorestown, New Jersey. Unfortunately, we are only able to serve students from Moorestown High School with our fall and spring racing teams. Our summer programs are open to everyone.
 

We are dedicated to the philosophy that all Moorestown High School students who are interested in rowing with us have the opportunity to do so, regardless of ability to pay.  Anyone who wishes to row but feels the cost of doing so would be a financial hardship should contact the club's treasurer

All,

I've uploaded the final video from week to at the link below.

We mixed up Novice Immersion kids with the Learn to Row kids, with each of the three boats having 3/4 NI kids and 3/4 LTR kids. Two boats had a varsity kid in the mix.

The kids looked great - They really came a long way over a short period of time. Hopefully they thoroughly enjoyed their brief time with us.

If your child is going to be in the high school in September, they may soon register for the fall Novice program. This program begins on or about September 17th. The schedule is still a work in progress but it will be finalized and posted shortly. A word of caution - There are two regattas the weekend of November 12 & 13. This coincides with the break from school for the NJEA Convention. Attendance at these two races will be required for all athletes.

If your athlete will be a student at the high school but unable to row in the fall, they may hold off until the Spring season, which begins in January. We workout indoors until the weather allows us to hit the river, likely in late February or early March.

Hope to see everyone soon.

Week 2, Day 2

All,

Below is the video from Day 2 of Week 2. I apologize, but I missed a group so a few kids got missed. I'll get everyone today. 

The beginning few clips are the kids who were with Coach Keough. The final few are the kids with Coach Emmi and I. 

Like I said, I'll be sure to get Coach North's group today. 

The obvious difference between the kids who are on their second day and the kids who are on their sixth day should stand out. 

PLEASE remember to show up hydrated and bring plenty of water. It's hot and there's no shade on the river.

Week 1 concludes

Team,

Congratulations on completing the week. A dozen of you wrapped up today while 13 will continue on next week. There are a dozen others who start on Monday. 

Today was the first time we separated the Novice Immersion kids from the Learn to Rowers. Because everyone starting Monday will be new, you kids will continue to row together and continue to work on fine-tuning the technique we taught you this week. 

Here's today's video. As always, the improvement from yesterday is obvious. More shocking is the fact that the comparison from Monday to today. 

Great job!

Another day under our belts and the kids are proving to be quick learners. As you'll see in the video below, the improvement from yesterday to today is remarkable. As they continue to gain confidence over the next few days their boat-moving ability will continue to skyrocket. 

See you all tomorrow.
