Red Bank Rec Days



red_bank_rec.JPGOne of the high points of every summer, Red Bank Rec day offers seventh and eight graders from Red Bank's summer recreation program a fast, fun, free introduction to the sport of rowing.

with kate.jpgBoys and girls take part in rowing machine "races and hands-on rowing demonstrations in boats on the water.

Everyone has a great time, including the NRR coaches, member-volunteers, and NRR teen rowers who are on hand to supervise.

 Our Introduction to Crew program for a dozen or so Monmouth County Parks System campers is a longer, more in-depth version of Red Bank Rec Day.  As part of this daylong program, campers (11-13 year olds) even get to row in quads (with coaches and adult volunteers in the bow and stroke seats).

ROAR
(Reach Out and Row)

NRR is all about access. We want rowing opportunities to be available to everyone, including all the youth in our community. We have seen how teens who row not only improve their physical fitness, but also develop more confidence, self-respect, focus, and responsibility. Through the teamwork that is part of rowing, they learn lessons that will last a lifetime while enjoying the beauty of the Navesink River and, of course, having fun.

ROAR (Reach Out and Row) is a donation-funded "rowership" program that provides rowing experiences - for free or at a minimal charge - to local boys and girls who would otherwise be unable to participate. 

Contributions from our members and other supporters have made it possible for 2 dozen Red Bank Regional high school students to participate in NRR youth programs so far. In 2014, 8th graders were also included.  Your donations are welcome. Contact claudia.lucey@gmail.com.

YOU CAN DONATE TO OUR REACH OUT AND ROW (ROAR) PROGRAM THROUGH REGATTA CENTRAL.  CLICK BELOW TO MAKE YOUR DONATION.
