Winter Training 2 Registration Open, News & Upcoming Events – Dec 6, 2019

Mercy Crew Rowers and Families,
We hope that everyone has been enjoying some well deserved time off from the crew season and are enjoying spending time with family  & friends and all of the joy that comes with preparing for the upcoming Christmas season.

First, we need to inform you that we regretfully announce the resignation of Coach Karen Morgan, effective immediately. Coach Morgan has been a part of the team for the past year and a half as assistant coach and added to her title this past Fall as Fitness Coordinator. We wish Coach Morgan well in her future endeavors.

Please, rest assured, we will be actively searching for her replacement and will make an announcement as soon as one is found.

Winter Training Session 2 Registration is now open. Winter Training Session 2 will begin after mid term exams on Monday Jan. 27 and run for 8 weeks prior to the beginning of the spring crew season. This winter training session is mandatory for spring rowers not participating in another winter sport. We are still awaiting final approval from Mercy AD, Anthony Yandek for our proposed times and specific locations available at Mercy for our daily training. Nevertheless, you can plan that we will be training weekly on Mon., Tues. & Wed. at Mercy and Thurs. at the Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center tanks. There will be no training on Fridays this year. We will also be integrating yoga practicefor 4 sessions every other week with a yoga for athletes trained instructor from Butterfly Yoga.

Mark your calendars, we have also tentatively scheduled the Pre Winter Training/Spring Season Parent & Athlete Information Meeting for Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 6:30pm in the Mercy Cafeteria.

We are still in need of a volunteer to fill the role as Corporate Sponsorship Coordinator. For more information or If interested, please contact Scott Steron at
