The Fox Chapel Crew was created in the spring of 1995 with a roster of 8 girls and 5 boys, led by Head Coach Mark Bellinger.  Our team has grown to include over 50 student-athletes. We are a 501(c)(3) organization affiliated with Fox Chapel Area High School. We are governed by a Board which consists of five voting members: our President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and 2 rowers, chosen as captains by their teammates.

Rowing benefits its participants in ways that go far beyond fitness and competition. Discipline, leadership, dedication, teamwork and time management are among the skills developed during participation.  Fox Chapel Crew rowers are consistently ranked at the top of their classes and have a record of academic excellence and scholastic leadership.

The SRAA Nationals in May is the goal for those who qualify at the Midwest Scholastic Rowing Championship. We offer summer learn-to-row camps for Dorseyville Middle School students, and summer sweep/sculling camps for experienced rowers.
