After dominating the field at the regional qualifying event at Villanova two weeks ago, eight Explorer rowers traveled to Boston last weekend to represent La Salle at the World Indoor Rowing Championships at Boston University's Agannis Arena. Two Explorers were crowned World Champions there.
Welcome! The La Salle Crew Parents Association supports all rowing activities throughout the year. Purchasing and maintaining boats, supplies, and other equipment needed to keep our program competitive is a major function. Our “Feed the Rowers” program provides a hospitality tent for most of our racing events, including but not limited to the Manny Flicks, Philadelphia Catholic League and Philadelphia City Championships and the Stotesbury Cup Regatta. In addition to feeding rowers and their families, the hospitality tent is also home to our La Salle Crew clothing and spirit gear "shop". Our tent location at the river is a great place to meet other parents and support our team on race day.
The season will end with the Crew Banquet which recognizes the dedication and hard work of our rowers and coaching staff. Our goal is to provide support and show our pride to our sons, coaches, and our team.
Every parent of a rower is a member of the La Salle Crew Parents Association.
