About Ridgewood Crew
Ridgewood Crew introduces Ridgewood, NJ high school-aged youth to the traditions, athleticism, sportsmanship, techniques and camaraderie of the sport of rowing. Founded in 2004, the team rows on the Passaic River in northern NJ and competes in the sport’s premier regattas held throughout the Northeast.
In the program's short history, our youth, board and parent volunteers have moved Ridgewood Crew forward by leaps and bounds. That success is represented by the widespread individual and team achievements of each of the student-athletes on the roster. To facilitate that success, Ridgewood Crew continues to make investments in coaching and new equipment. The coaching staff is one of the most experienced in program history.

Coach Boris will assess rower fitness and technique at the end of February and will place rowers either on the High School team or the Development team. Boat assignment will also be determined. Until then, practices will continue at the Old Paramus Reformed Church in Ridgewood. Ridgewood Crew will conduct all training in accordance with the most recent NJ Covid-19 protocols set by NJ Governor Murphy.
