Rowing Clinic

There will be a learn-to-row clinic for any Freshman or Sophomore interested in rowing.  The clinic will take place at the Gillin Boathouse (2200 Kelly Drive, Philadelphia) Tuesday, August 25th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Freshmen who are interested in joining the crew are invited to participate in a fall program, starting September 8th.  Fall crew does not have tryouts. If you are cut from another sport, you may join crew. Very few Prep students have rowed before high school. We will teach all athletes the basics of rowing and give them ample time to develop. Freshmen are encouraged to read this notice from Coach Kilpatrick about the Crew program.

For more information, contact Head Coach Jim Glavin at or Freshman Coach and Moderator Dan Kilpatrick at
