What is Navesink River Rowing ?


Navesink River Rowing is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about all aspects of the sport of rowing.  We maintain a fleet of boats for members to use from early May through late October, and offer lessons, coaching and youth programs in June, July and early August.

Founded in 1983, NRR has introduced hundreds of men and women to the skills, health benefits, teamwork, dedication and discipline that make sculling and sweep rowing exceptional—and lifelong--forms of exercise and recreation.  Our rowers range in age from 14 to over 80.   There is no residency requirement, and NRR does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin.

We row on the Navesink River in Monmouth County, NJ, launching from a modest site at the end of Maple Avenue in Red Bank (directions to site) where we keep 23 single shells, 4 doubles, and 7 quads,  We also maintain rack space for privately owned singles and serve as the site for the Ranney School rowing program.

NRR memberships for adults with sculling experience and NRR programs--including adult beginner lessons, master's crew "camp," and summer sessions for novice, intermediate and advanced level youth rowers--are open to anyone from Monmouth County and the surrounding areas. Everyone who completes an adult application or youth application and waiver, pays applicable fees, and adheres to the rules and policies of the organization is welcome.

NRR is managed by a board of directors that meets monthly to discuss issues and make decisions effecting the organization and its members.  We hire a staff of top-notch coaches for the summer and a part time Operations Manager  from March through October.  Every other aspect of daily and ongoing operations is handled by member volunteers.
