When & Where
Norcal Crew is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of youth through the sport of rowing. The organization is overseen by a board of directors, managed by an executive director and coaching staff, and supported by its membership and the surrounding community.
Norcal’s mission is to provide opportunities for instruction, training, and competition in the sport of rowing to middle and high school students across the San Francisco Peninsula. Norcal strives to provide a comprehensive training program in order to strengthen its student-athletes’ personal development. It is the team’s goal to foster a sense of team spirit while helping athletes develop both physical and mental strength and broaden their horizons as they learn to trust and support teammates while establishing their own sense of confidence and commitment.
Norcal practices out of the Bair Island Aquatic Center at the Port of Redwood City and races all over the country, though primarily in California. Norcal has top-of-the-line racing shells, including eights, fours, quads, doubles, pairs, and singles from Vespoli, Sykes, Hudson, and Empacher.
Crew is a team sport. It fosters a sense of team spirit, helping athletes develop both physical and mental toughness and broadening their horizons as they learn to trust and support others, while establishing their own sense of confidence and commitment. Those who stay with the sport generally remember it as a highlight in their lives. Crew is a lifelong sport with participants who row well into their seventies at masters regattas held throughout the country.
