Haddon Township Rowing is a scholastic sculling club that supports a competitive rowing program throughout the school year as well as two summer rowing camps and a fall youth development program for middle school students.
Established in 2004 to promote the sport of rowing among Haddon Township youth, the c;lub has produced state and national winners with first place finishes at Stotesbury (the largest scholastic regatta in the nation), the Scholastic Rowing Association of America Nationals, the Garden States Championship and City Championship. The team routinely qualifies boats to compete at the US Rowing Youth Nationals and in 2019 the Boys Varsity Quad was ranked 5th in the nation.
Fall Scholastic Competitive Program
Open to any student at Haddon Township High School. Season begins at the start of school and continues thru mid-November. Rowers compete in 4-5 regional regattas, most of which are held on the Schuylkill River , Philadelphia. Practices are after school on Cooper River in Pennsauken.
Spring Scholastic Competitive Program
Our Winter/Spring program begins in January with winter conditioning and strength training. Practices are held after school in the Club's 'erg room' at the High School. When weather permits, water practices resumes. Initially water practices will continue to be in the afternoon but in a few weeks shift to early morning where there's less traffic on the river and water conditions are much improved. Rowers compete in 12 or more regattas during the spring season and this includes several national contests.
