ABOUT US

The FHC Crew Club began in 1995 with 7 boys. We traveled in the LeBlanc family van with 4 oars strapped to the roof (the only equipment we owned!) and any boat we could borrow at the regattas.

In 1996 girls joined the team and the program has continued to grow and prosper ever since. We now average between 80 and 90 members per year. The team is open to any student with a sincere interest in learning competitive rowing.

FHC Crew became a Varsity sport in 2001.  Thanks to the generosity of our team parents and other donors, and success of various fundraisers over the past years, we have acquired 8's, 4's, oars, coaching launches, a boat trailer, equipment trailer, tents and an assortment of additional equipment.  In 2002, with a major community donation and school district funding we moved to our own Forest Hills boathouse that is shared by all three Forest Hills High Schools!
