Mission Statement

The New Trier Rowing Club ("NTRC") is a parent organization whose mission is to support the New Trier Rowing Team (the "Team") in a manner consistent with the New Trier High School Athletic Philosophy: to provide an "educationally sound and successful, competitive interscholastic experience " for the members of the Team.

NTRC implements its mission in several ways, including but not limited to:

  • encouraging by our example good sportsmanship, a sense of camaraderie, and a commitment to excellence.
  • providing support for the Team:
    • by contributing to the purchase of shells, oars and other equipment or for other purposes as necessary;
    • at the beginning of each season by handling registration and sourcing uniforms;
    • at each regatta by arranging for food and tents, and where necessary, lodging and flights for the team; and
    • throughout the season, by maintaining a team website with relevant information about the coaches, rosters, practices and regattas, providing parents with specific information about each regatta, and communicating with the local press and others about the Team's activities;
  • organizing fundraising, through solicitation, sale of fan gear and other methods;
  • maintaining a committed and capable board of directors consisting of parents of current rowers; and
  • maintaining a financially sound organization.
