Welcome to the 2023 Fall Rowing season!
This Fall we will again partner with Forest HIlls Northern Rowing to row as one team representing FHNE. FHNE Crew will participate in daily practices and competitive regattas. This exciting opportunity provides novice rowers a chance to get to know the sport and allows seasoned rowers a space to continue their training and prepare for Spring competition.

Want to try an erg (rowing machine) before you sign-up? Stop by the Crew tent at the Forest Hills Eastern Hawk Rally in the Fall or Winter. We have ergs set up and we will let you give it a try or race with one of your friends or someone on our crew! It’s a great way to meet the team members, the coach and assistant coaches and ask any questions you may have about rowing on a team!
