Meet The Coaches


Head Coach Bryan Stambaugh, with help from numerous people, established the Great Bridge Crew in 1999. He rowed competitively for two years at the University of Virginia where one of the highlights was racing the Head of the Charles in the Men’s Varsity 8+ in his second year. Since GBC’s inception Coach Stambaugh has seen the club mature from 20 rowers and two Kashper 4+’s, through a membership that once peaked at 70+ rowers, and a fleet that now has a variety of shells that allow for sweeping and sculling opportunities. Coach Stambaugh is proud of the GBC rowers’ accomplishments on and off the water.

GENERAL: Great Bridge Crew is open to students 8th grade through 12th grade. In the summer, fall, and winter rowers may attend any school, so long as they are academically eligible (minimum 2.o GPA). In the spring rowers may only compete in lineups with rowers from the same school. We will support students from other schools, that don’t have a program, as best as we can. We take on new rowers from June through Mid-September and then again in November. Contact Coach Stambaugh via email ( for further information.
