Great Valley Crew rows of the John S. Trinsey Jr. Memorial Boathouse, Water Street, Bridgeport. There is a Voluntary Parent-led carpool for those that want to participate.

PRACTICES are MONDAY-WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY 3:45-6:15PM and SATURDAYS at Trinsey Boathouse from 10AM to 1PM. The first practice, weather permitting, will be August 16, 2021. The boathouse does not have a great GPS but you can put in directions to Frosty Falls Ice Cream then keep driving past there along the river. That road will end at the boathouse parking lot.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a competitive rowing team and 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 means an entire boat must stay on-land.

  • 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 Upper Merion John S. Trinsey Jr. Memorial Boathouse in Bridgeport, approx. 20 minutes from GVHS. 
  • PLEASE NOTE:  This is a competitive rowing team, we need your full commitment to all practices and regattas.
