Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Crew!

WINTER TRAINING 2021 – STRENGTH & CONDITIONING PROGRAM
Jan. 25 – Mar 26, 2021  (8 WKS, M/T/TH/F),  4:00-5:00 pm

WINTER TRAINING REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

Regardless of what happens this spring, we can still train, get in shape and be part of a team. These are the fundamentals of why many of you joined this team. The board and your coaches have been hard at work putting together a winter training program that will be fun, productive and inline with COVID safety measures. You will NOT have to stick to your cohort, we can practice as a TEAM! We will be following social distancing rules and other safety guidelines, but we can still make the best of things together. Please note that this winter training session is not mandatory for spring rowers due to COVID-19!

For our 2021 Winter Training, we will be offering practices 4 days a week from 4:00-5:00pm beginning on Monday Jan. 25 for 8 weeks prior to the beginning of the spring crew season.  Mondays and Fridays will be at our new temporary Mercy Crew Erg Training Center in a large space where you can erg and train with Coach Casey and Coach Anna. The facility located at 3300 Monroe Avenue, across from Pittsford Plaza. Tuesdays and Thursdays will be at the Bay View YMCA in Webster doing strength training and conditioning led by Coach Gustavo and the YMCA training staff. All will adhere to COVID safety protocols and social distancing. We will be working hard, incorporating variety and focusing on building fitness.

The Spring season is still up in the air and dependent on safety in regards to the virus. Nothing has been officially cancelled to-date. We are optimistic that we will get on the water this spring. There is a small community group hoping to host a scrimmage on the Genesee this spring, if possible. We regret that we do not have more good news to share at this time. As we learn more we will communicate that information.

We continue to navigate these unchartered waters and we want to do our best for the girls to keep them engaged in the sport and connected with their teammates. We have worked with the Mercy Athletic Director, Mr. Anthony Yandek, on a resumption plan for the winter training – one where the health and safety of our girls are in the forefront. Given this and the information above, we continue to align our plan for winter training and the spring rowing season with those of the other local and regional teams.

Mark your calendars, we will be holding a Pre-Winter Training Parent & Athlete Information Meeting for Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 7:00 pm via Zoom to review the training session in further detail, reviewing procedures and safety protocols and answering any questions.
