The Robinson Crew Booster Club does not receive any school or county funding, which means it needs to reach out to the community to raise funds to ensure the continued success of the program. It costs about $1,900 per rower a season to cover equipment, coach’s salaries and other expenses associated with a successful rowing experience. The 201-13 crew team has 116 registered rowers.
