Mercer Indoor Row for the Cure

March 11th is the Mercer Indoor Row for the Cure! This event will be held at the Peddie School and all proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Novice and Varsity are both expected to row at this event which will begin at 9 AM. Please notify your coach if you are unable to attend!

Spring Registration is OPEN!

Novice rowers (new and returning from Fall) can sign up for the team and varsity rowers should sign up for tryouts. If you were in the 8th grade program this fall you received a link from the coaches for your priority registration, which closed 2/9. We are currently offering spots to the Fall waitlist, remaining spots will be opened to the public on March 1st. Please visit here on the website to find the correct links.

Lightweight Certification

If your child would like to row as a lightweight athlete this spring, they will need to have the Mercer Junior Rowing Lightweight Health Form to their respected coach by March 12 for the spring season. If the athlete doesn’t have the form in they will not be eligible to row as a lightweight for the spring season.
