Getting Started

If your student is interested in joining crew, fill out the interest form and physical forms and plan to attend the next interest meeting. Download and read the rest of the documents and information in this Join the Team section.

 

Interest Meeting

These meetings are held in the winter to give parents and students information on what to expect this year and answer questions. 

 

Parent interest meetings are held at the beginning of the season. Dues can be paid during this parent meeting. Bring your checkbook. Physical forms will be due to Ms. Kigin during school (get your student to turn them in early to avoid the line).

 

Dues, Costs, Uniforms 

  • Dues are approximately $400.00 for Varsity and $400.00 for Novices. Paying by check is preferred. Online payments are an option but will include a processing fee. Learn more about online payments.

  • Dues may be paid during the parent and rower kickoff meeting at the beginning of the season. Students waiting for results from try-out week, please pay dues no later than March 1.

  • Novice rowers will have a practice uniform they will use for racing which will include own purchased shorts and a team tank top. 

  • Varsity rowers are expected to purchase uniforms which are about $115 but can be worn for more than one season. This includes the uni and a long sleeve shirt. (info on ordering will be provided closer to the start of season)

  • Additional fees for out of state regattas (Stotesbury and Nationals) are about $350.00 per event

  • We don’t want to exclude students who are interested in crew but unwilling to pay. If you need financial assistance, reach out to your child's coach regarding a potential scholarship.

  • To offset the cost of equipment and provide scholarships, our team does a lot of fundraising and relies on volunteers and donations. Some volunteer positions are required of parents as part of VASRA. Please see Volunteering and Boosters pages to learn more.

 

US Rowing

Students participating in competitive rowing are required to have a US Rowing membership and signed waiver each year. Follow these steps (doc) to set up your account. 

 

Communication 

  • SignUp Genius: This is an application we will use during the season to communicate schedules and ask for volunteer positions required to be filled by parents of teams. We will need your email. 

  • Emails: Parents and students will receive emails from coaches through MailChimp as needed.

  • Website: http://www.wakefieldcrew.org/- We will post photos and update the team Google calendar here to denote practices and major events. 

  • Twitter: Follow the team @WHS_crew or https://twitter.com/whs_crew. During Regattas, you can also follow @VASRAresults on Twitter for updates on line ups, race times, and times/scores.
