Summer Sweep Program Overview:
The Mercer Competitive Summer Program is open to all athletes who compete for teams based out of the Caspersen Rowing Center. These teams include Lawrenceville, Peddie, Hun, and the Mercer Juniors.
Due to space and coaching constraints, athletes who do not compete for these teams will be accepted through invitation only and must be able to meet a baseline erg standard. If you are interested in joining us for the summer please fill out the form below. Any further questions can be directed to Hilary Gehman at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All documents need to be mailed, faxed, or handed in to the PNRA office by the first day of practice. Athletes who have already handed these documents in within the 12 months of the program start date, do NOT need to hand them in again.
(Note: we only need one swim test on file for each athlete. If you have participated in one of our programs and already handed in the swim test you do not need to perform another.)
Financial Assistance: Rowing is an expensive sport, and we do not want financial considerations to keep athletes from participating. For these situations we do have a small amount of aid available. To apply please fill out and mail the form linked below. All information is confidential.
