Welcome to Bedford Crew!
The Bedford Crew program was founded in 2010 and is based in Bedford, NH. Previously based in the Amoskeag Rowing Club boathouse, we now row out of our new dock site in Hooksett, N.H., just north of Hooksett Self Storage on a beautiful stretch of the Merrimack River. We usually have 80 - 90 rowers each spring and fall season with many of those choosing to participate in our winter training program.
Upcoming and Current Events:
The spring 2023 season starts on March 20. Be sure to sign-up here to pre-register and to receive additional communications about the season.
Rowers who would like to participate in a carpool must complete the online carpool form by the first day of practice (March 20).
New Rower Swim Test
All rowers new to the BHS crew program are required to take a swim test. For new spring rowers, video proof of successful swim test completion must be submitted before March 20, the first day of the spring season. Video clips should be sent to email@example.com.
The swim test consists of the following required components:
• A 200 yard continuous swim (8 lengths or 4 round trips of a 25 yard pool) with no standing on the pool bottom or hanging on to the pool edge
• 10 minutes of continuously treading water
• Putting a life jacket on in the water
The swim test must be completed regardless of previous swimming experience or participation on a competitive swim team.
If you are a returning BHS rower, you do not need to take the swim test again.
