Crew Team Practices at Malvern Prep

Villa Maria’s new crew team is spending the winter months training for the upcoming spring racing season. The girls recently worked out at Malvern Prep’s facility, building stamina and developing technique. Villa coach Joan Koob says the team will be practicing in Conshohocken on the Schuylkill River, rowing out of the White Marsh Boat Club, which is part of Hines Rowing Center.  The club is a few hundred meters down river from Malvern Prep’s boathouse.  Races are held on the Schuylkill river on Kelly Drive near Boathouse Row.

The team’s racing schedule can be found at www.phillyflicks.com/racing/2018-schedule/. The girls also plan to race at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta on May 18 and 19.
