Spring 2020 Uniform – New Uni’s for All Rowers!

SEW SPORTY TEAM STORE WITH FREE SHIPPING & DISCOUNTED UNI’S OPEN JAN. 27 – FEB. 1

As we approach the start of the Spring crew season, it’s time to place uniform and Mercy Crew apparel and fanwear orders through Sew Sporty, our team uniform and apparel store. All orders will take place online directly with Sew Sporty at the Mercy Crew team store.  Here is the link to the Team Store https://row.sewsporty.com/collections/mercy-crew.
Because of the Mercy Athletics rebranding & standardization initiative, Mercy Crew can no longer use the bright pink accent color in our uniforms and the Mercy crest in our logo. If incorporating a secondary color into our color scheme it must only be the Carolina blue and we must utilize the Mercy “M” in our approved logo going forward. Thus all rowers will need to order new uni’s and visors or hats to be worn in competition. Because of our need to place a large bulk order to transition all rowers, we have been able to negotiate a discounted price for the uni’s of $60.
SPRING ROWERS– All Spring rowers, Varsity and Novice, will need to order new uni’s for the upcoming season.

FALL ROWERS– if you are a Fall Rower Only and will be Varsity in the upcoming season,  we encourage you to place your Uni order now while we have the discounted pricing & free shipping available. The $60 discounted Uni price will not be available in the Fall.

  • There is a team discount of $35 off for only the Uni’s and FREE SHIPPING on all items ordered by midnight Saturday, February 1 as part of our team order! Because of the large bulk order that we will be placing and with the $500 subsidy from Mercy Athletics, the Uni’s will be available for $60 each (instead of the regular $95) during the ordering window ONLY.
  • All orders placed after the Team Store Ordering window of 1/27 – 2/1 closes will be at full price and will incur shipping costs.
  • Rowers should have either the blue hat or the blue visor as part of their uniform.
  • All items ordered with the team order will be shipped in bulk to the Uniform Coordinator, who will then individually distribute the items to the rowers.
  • Please note that all pieces in the Sew Sporty Team Store have now incorporated the new Mercy Crew logo. If you already own spirit wear and gear with the old logo, you do not need to replace it unless you choose. These items can still be worn and used.
  • Contact Gina Mastrosimone at uniforms_fanwear@mercycrew.org with any questions.

It can be ordered at any time, however, there is free shipping on the jacket during our team ordering timeframe now and because it is customized, it takes 4-6 weeks for delivery otherwise. There almost always is rain at some point during practices and regattas particularly with the unpredictable upstate NY Fall and Spring seasons. This is a water resistant jacket helps to keep the girls warm and dry. (If interested, the matching wind pants are also available sold separately.)
