Steve Hope

Novice Women's Head Coach

Steve Hope began rowing in 1989 and was a four-time Eastern Sprints medal winner and captain of the Princeton University lightweight crew. He coached at Cornell University and MIT in 1999 and 2000 while taking a break from a career in finance. In 2015, he volunteered as an assistant coach at Norcal and returned for the 2019 season as the assistant coach for the 8th grade development team.

For the 2020 season, Steve is excited to move into the role of Head Coach for Novice Women and spread the passion of rowing to first-year rowers. Steve has two children who have rowed at Norcal, including his daughter who recently graduated from her successful career at Norcal with a trip to Junior Nationals in the junior women’s pair.
