RIVER CITY CREW INC

RVA Youth Rowing

Richmond's only citywide youth rowing program, teaching teamwork, respect, mental and physical discipline, responsibility, leadership, and confidence through rowing.

In 2005 five girls were introduced to a short-lived youth-rowing program at the University of Richmond. Left with the passion, but no rowing opportunities for high school students in Richmond, the girls approached their parents. A supportive parent, Tom O’Rourke, led the the challenge as the temporary coach and the North Moreland Rowing Club began to compete in the Fall of 2006 with a 23-member, all-female team.

Deciding not to let the program die after the girls graduated, the program expanded to the entire Richmond community and in 2009 River City Crew was born. It’s new mission was to bring scholastic rowing to the Richmond area for 8th to 12th grade students. O’Rourke agreed to be the first Executive Director and Head Coach.

River City Crew has become a unique resource for the community. It exposes high-school students to a once exclusive sport, teaching teamwork, respect, mental and physical discipline, responsibility, leadership, and confidence. River City Crew coaches 90 rowers competing in both the Fall and Spring regatta seasons, and teaches fundamentals to 120 rowers each summer through its “Learn to Row” programs. The River City team proudly has members from 17 different high schools.

River City Crew is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is supported and funded by it’s participating families.
