Learn to Row with Mercy Crew!


Mercy Crew Learn to Row Programs – Summer 2021

For students entering Grades 6-12, who are attending or plan to attend Our Lady of Mercy interested in learning to row for Mercy Crew. No prior rowing experience is necessary. Using ergs, four- and eight-person boats the sweep rowing technique (using one oar) will be taught along with rowing concepts & terminology and proper safety. The eight-person boat creates a balanced environment to learn the mechanics of the rowing stroke. Participants will learn boat and oar handling techniques in small-group sessions with the help of experienced Mercy Crew coaches and rowers.
