Schuylkill Navy HP to Royal Henley

In an effort to develop high level racing both domestically and internationally, the clubs of Boathouse Row have banded together to attempt something that has never been accomplished before in the history of the Schuylkill Navy, the oldest amateur governing body in sports in the United States:  thus the Schuylkill Navy High Performance Collaborative was born.

To bring acclaim to the city of Philadelphia and Boathouse Row, the Collaborative is looking to send 8-12 Philadelphian aspiring amateur athletes to the international stage this July to compete at the prestigious Henley Royal Regatta in the UK representing not only Boathouse row but all of Philadelphia!

Unfortunately, there are a lot of costs associated with competing internationally (boat rental. oar rental, uniforms, airfare, etc.)and these amateur athletes will not be able to accomplish this task without your help! 

It is incredibly expensive to send athletes abroad. Boat rental, oar rental, airfare, lodging, and uniforms really add up! It will cost approximately $2500/athlete to get them and their coach across the pond to bring back the trophies! 

We need you to show some "City of Brotherly Love" to help get us there! Please donate and share the link with other rowers who want to help Philadelphia take home the trophies at Royal Henley.

Whether you donate a lot or a little, every donation is appreciated and helps these athletes a ton!
