Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Philadelphia City Rowing! We rely on the support of volunteers in order to deliver this unique program to hundreds of kids each year, entirely free of cost.
The fantastic work of our volunteers has not gone unnoticed. In 2010, Philadelphia Magazine recognized PCR for it's volunteering with a Best of Philly award! We are currently looking for committed volunteers to serve as Assistant Coaches and Mentors for our upcoming seasons. As our program continues to grow, we need additional mentors to provide support for our rowers. Please see below for a description of these positions and the time commitment required of each.
PCR is a competitive program that aims to instill hard work, discipline and team work in our athletes. Assistant coaches work with the Head Coach to implement practices on land and on water with the aim of improving athletes’ technique, strength, and speed. Like all adults in our program, assistant coaches are also expected to serve as role models to our athletes, and thus must conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.
If you are interested in volunteering as an assistant coach, please submit the inquiry form below, and we will get back to you shortly!
The PCR Mentoring Program pairs young athletes from our program with caring and patient adults from the rowing community and is meant to provide our young athletes with the support and encouragement they need to succeed in rowing and other aspects of life. Mentoring is a big time commitment, and it requires a tremendous amount of understanding and patience to develop fruitful and trusting relationships with our athletes and their families. However, the rewards are great and can last a lifetime.
If you are interested in mentoring with PCR, please read through the Guidelines and Handbook to learn more about the expectations and requirements of the mentoring program.
