Adult Sculling

The Princeton National Rowing Association and Mercer Masters are pleased to announce the 2017 Adult Learn-to-Scull and Intermediate and Open  Sculling Programs

For 2017, Mercer Rowing will offer Learn-to-Scull, Intermediate Sculling and Open Sculling.  The Learn-to-Scull program will use quads (four person sculling shells) to introduce adults to the sport.  As athletes increase their skills and become more comfortable on the water, they will be introduced to sculling in smaller shells (doubles and singles).  Intermediate sculling will take place in either a double or single sculls.

If you are interested in participating in one of the PNRA/Mercer Masters Adult Sculling sessions, please submit an application below.  Athletes selected to participate in the sessions will be informed of their acceptance approximately 2 weeks before the start of the session.  Individuals with an established relationship to PNRA/Mercer programs will be given priority for the limited spots available in each session. Participants can register for multiple sessions.

All sessions will take place at the Caspersen Rowing Center, 1 South Post Road, West Windsor, NJ 08550.
