  • There is No Experience necessary for you to row with us!
  • Rowers must be GVHS or GVMS Students in grades 8-12.
  • There is NO TRANSPORTATION provided to practices in Delaware or to our regattas in Philly, NJ and DEL. There is a voluntary parent-led carpool for those that want to participate.
  • We row out of Wilmington Youth Rowing Association, WYRA, the address is 500 E Front St., WILMINGTON, DEL 19801.
  • Practices begin on September 6th, 2019.
  • PRACTICES are MONDAY-WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY 3:45-6:15pm and SATURDAY at WYRA from 10am to 1pm.
  • PLEASE NOTE This is a competitive rowing team, we need your full commitment to all practices and regattas. We need the whole team at every practice to ensure we can get on the water ever day the weather conditions allow. We lowered the number of weekday practices when we moved to WYRA, due to the commute and respecting the rowers need to have time for school work. So more than ever, we need full commitment, one rower missing practice means an entire boat has to stay on-land.

 Salute our rowers for another fantastic year!

 These kids worked hard this season! Lots of 6k's and getting up early for Regattas. We hope to
 have everyone back next season plus additional folks who have expressed interest in joining in
 the spring. We are always interested in growing the team so talk it up. The more rowers we
 have, the more opportunity to get out on the water!

Rower Spotlight!

Slade Crane

Slade is a Varsity senior rower for GV Crew. Outside of rowing, he enjoys skiing and watching football. Right now, he is undecided on his plans after high school. When it comes to rowing, Slade most enjoys giving it his all and staying in time, especially to songs like "Sumo." He like that rowing is unique and has inspired him to work hard. Slade goes by his motto: "Always power through, you'll always feel better in the end"


GV Crew Blue Jean Ball

Special Thanks to Marcy Schell and Jennifer Grobe for heading the committee. Thanks to the the MANY parents who donated time gathering donations, preparing baskets, setting up the hall. Also, thanks to all of the families who donated auction items. And last, thank you to the team members who helped set up and sold raffle tickets that night. To top it off, it was a super fun evening with lots of friends and community support. The band, the beverages, the BBQ, the donuts! Looks like we made approximately $21,000 and we couldn't do it without you! Thank you to all and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
