GV Crew News

Great Valley Crew Club is a co-ed rowing team for grades 8-12. This is a learn-to-row program that is great for beginners - no previous experience or tryouts to join the team!

Registration is open

GV Crew has Fall and Spring seasons and competes in local and regional regattas. Practices start February 17th and end May 17, 2021.

Practices are MWF 3:45-6:15 and Saturdays 10:00-1:00 at the John S. Trinsey Boathouse in Bridgeport, PA, just past King of Prussia.

Crew Online Auction

The GV Crew Online Auction (January 16-23) was a great success! Check out the results and thank you to all who bid and donated!

It's Official... GV Crew is Moving!

Starting with the Fall season 2020, Great Valley Crew will be rowing out of the John S. Trinsey Jr. Memorial Boathouse which is also home of the Upper Merion Rowing Association. Many thanks to Marcy Schell for her work in making this happen! The boathouse is also fully equipped with 24 ergs and is part of the Upper Merion John S. Trinsey Jr. Memorial Boathouse Township Park. The boathouse is located on the Schuylkill River in Bridgeport, just past the King of Prussia Mall.

See What Crew Is All About

  • Great Valley Crew Video
  • GV Crew featured in the Malvern Patch
  • No experience necessary to row with GV Crew! Most rowers start in high school so it's a great sport for trying something new.
  • Boys & Girls Grades 8-12 can join GV Crew. Note: 8th graders can train and practice, but are not eligible to compete in the regattas.
  • There is NO TRANSPORTATION provided to practices or to our regattas in Philly, NJ and DEL. There is a voluntary parent-led carpool for those that want to participate.
  • We practice out of the John S. Trinsey Jr. Memorial Boathouse in Bridgeport on the Schuylkill River, approximately 20 minutes from GVHS. 
  • 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. One rower missing practice often means an entire boat has to stay on-land.
