“All were merged into one smoothly working machine; they were, in fact, a poem of motion, a symphony of swinging blades.”

~Daniel James Brown, The Boys in the Boat

Lourdes Crew is open to all Our Lady of Lourdes students who are interested in rowing as a spring sport.

Never rowed before? That is fine! When you join the team as a novice rower, our whole team will help and support you, and our dedicated coaches will ensure you are well-prepared to get out on the water.

Crew is the ultimate team sport; it takes every person’s focus and hard work to make the boat move. It is a sport that demands endurance, strength, balance, focus and discipline. Above all OUR TEAM IS A FAMILY and we all believe that CREW is FUN!

With a 25-year history filled with tradition and a roster full of promising potential, look for the Lourdes crew team to row past the competition in 2023!

If you are interested in rowing, please email: lourdesrowing@gmail.com

Lourdes Crew is managed and financed by the Lourdes Rowing Association (LRA). Parents of rowers are elected to the Board of Directors who make decisions on financing activities and costs associated with the sport.
