Norcal Crew is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of youth through the sport of rowing. We introduce athletes to the water with camps and instructional programs for middle school students, while training over 100 high school athletes for competition on the national level.
Over the past two years, Norcal has nearly doubled in size in the past two years. We have been working hard to provide the equipment our rowers need to train, and our coaches need to train effectively. The erg-a-thon is our chance to support those efforts. Our goal is to pull at least one million meters and raise $80,000, to bring in new oars, rowing machines, more boats for our athletes, and more launches for coaches.
Your donation enables Norcal Crew to continue it's mission of not only training athletes for the highest level of competition, but also to open our doors to any athlete who wants to be a part of the organization. We are currently able to provide a quality experience to anyone, regardless of their athletic background, natural ability, or financial situation, while still winning national championships in each of the past four years. We need equipment and support to be able to continue to provide this opportunity to all going forward.
Sean...I couldn't be more happy that you found something you love to do and are good at. I hope rowing is a life long adventure for you.
Keep up the hard work Sydney!
