Berkeley High Crew is supported by Berkeley Crew, a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of competitive rowing for all students at Berkeley High School.

The Board of Berkeley Crew has the following specific goals:

1.  Establish and maintain programs to recruit and retain rowers so that Berkeley High Crew reflects the demographic diversity of Berkeley High School.

2.  Generate funding to cover the team’s operational and capital expenses, ensuring that the rowers have access to the water using well-maintained, competition-quality equipment.

3.  Provide logistical and other support (such as transportation, food and travel lodging) to enable the team to train and compete.

4.  Provide a competent and stable coaching staff. Direct and support the coaching staff to educate athletes in teamwork, the techniques of rowing, nutrition, fitness, and competition in an atmosphere that emphasizes shared purpose, commitment, integrity, sportsmanship, personal growth, and self-esteem.

5.  Manage the team’s finances, taxes, insurance, official records, and other administrative needs.

6.  Provide for communications within the Berkeley High Crew community and to the larger outside community.

7.  Encourage and support the academic achievement of Berkeley High School student-athletes.

8.  Educate parents of new rowers about the sport and the team.
