Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Crew!

We’re looking forward to a fantastic Fall Season!

Fall Crew Practice Begins  – August 26, 3:30-5:45 pm

The fall season begins with practices on the water
beginning Monday, Aug. 26 at the
Genesee Waterways Center
Monday – Friday, 3:30-5:45pm.

Carpool will commence on the first day of school Wed. Sept. 5.
Parents will be responsible for transportation to and from practice for all practices held prior to that.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have completed the online Registration as well as have an approved Mercy School Nurse’s Clearance in order to practice. New Novices must also have a completed Swim Test Form.

There will be No Practice on the following days:
Fri. Aug. 30, Mon. Sep. 3, Fri. Oct. 4, and Mon. Oct. 14

If you are unable to make practice you need to use the ‘No Practice Link’.  Remember 3 unexcused absences (i.e. practices you miss without using the ‘No Practice Link’) you are suspended from the team.  Coaches and the Carpool Coordinator need accurate counts for ease of boating, and for proper number of cars for carpooling.  Please take this into consideration when you are unable to make practice.

  • Congratulations to the Junior 8 boats who both made it into the A Final. The A Boat placed 6th Overall/ 4th Scholastic and the B Boat place 9th Overall/ 6th Scholastic out of 18 boats in this event.
  • Congratulations to the Novice 8 boat who also made it into their A Final and finished 7th Overall out of 19 boats.
  • Congratulations to the Senior Varsity 4 boats who raced hard and faced fierce competition in a field of 53 boats. The A Boat qualified for the C Final but had the awful misfortune of having their steering cable break during their final race. Despite that they still posted a 7th place finish in their heat.
Great job ladies!
