sponsorships and appreciate your consideration. Here’s some info
about us to aid your decision.
Community. EHTHS Rowing began 16 seasons ago, aided by a resourceful group determined to establish a public school program for a sport that doesn’t quite fit in a public school budget. An 8-seat shell (boat) costs over
$30,000! School funds commensurate with other sports seed the program, but realistically can’t reach levels needed to equip and develop rowers to compete with private schools with deep endowments and 50+ year legacies. We’ve grown from a handful of rowers using one overweight, secondhand shell, to over 100 rowers and $575,000+ in equipment that requires systemic upkeep and replacement. Costs for shells, gear, regatta fees, and assistant coaches to accommodate a growing roster are all borne by EHTHS Crew Boosters (a 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Charitable Organization). The EHT community has supported the Crew Boosters with a sporting and generous spirit over the years. That is the way our team flourishes.
Developing Youth Crew is an exceptionally demanding aerobic and anaerobic team sport. Rowers must achieve impressive strength and endurance, master technique that’s unlike any other activity, and learn to row in perfect harmony with others. Success comes from 3-hour daily practices
Pride We’ve grown from a modest start into a team that wins. Competition at our top two regattas is not regional, but national, and the ‘medal haul’ for EHTHS rowers in the last five years is impressive! Our 2010 Women’s Varsity Four placed 2nd among an elite international field at the Women’s Henley Regatta held outside of London, England. We know success is built upon community support that makes expert coaching and race-class equipment available for matching with our rowers’ skill and dedication. We’re proud and honored to be…EHT!
Exposure We live in a region rich in rowing tradition. The US rowing center is near Princeton. Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River is a famed race venue, where more than 50,000 family, friends, and rowing enthusiasts gather each May for the Stotesbury Cup Regatta: the world’s largest HS rowing event. There are 750-800 rowers that hail from eleven South Jersey HS rowing programs. Regattas that EHTHS attends in Philadelphia, at Lake Lenape in Mays Landing, and at the Cooper River in Collingswood, NJ draw 2500-3000 SouthJersey rowers and spectators among their audiences. We look forward to recognizing
