In 2022, we partnered with the Newark Housing Authority in our mission to provide greater access to the Passaic River. Newark, NJ is one of the most diverse municipalities within the United States and is nestled between several major city centers. Our advantageous location, the expertise of our coaching staff, and the untapped potential of our youth, makes Brick City Rowing uniquely equipped to develop high performing athletes of color. In our second-year, Brick City Rowing is currently coaching over 70 student athletes in Newark.

Join us as we look towards the future and unveil our plans for site development at our Inaugural Gala, hosted by Arshay Cooper on April 14th, 2023. During the evening, we will be honoring those who have made significant contributions to our mission. We are excited to serve the people of Newark, New Jersey, and it’s time to celebrate these achievements with individuals who have already paved the way!
