Founded in 2007, RFH Rowing is an intense, time-demanding four season sport, which competes in regattas in the Fall and Spring seasons. The club is funded by athlete participation fees and The Rumson Boat Race, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, devoted to improving the lives of our community's youth through rowing and supporting our RFH rowing athletes. Donations and sponsorships keep this program running!
Rowers are mentally and physically strong, some of the toughest athletes around. The team bonds being part of a sport where they depend on one another to operate effectively; from getting the boats in and out of the water to rowing with their crews. The athletes learn a strong sense of commitment and responsibility from the beginning.
RFH Rowing athletes have been recruited to over 30 exceptional university rowing teams including Princeton, MIT, Drexel, Bucknell, University of Pennsylvania, Miami University, Indiana, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Iona, Lafayette, Loyola, Ithaca College, St. Lawrence, and LaSalle College.
