    • (NOTE: Sandy Run Park rules require everyone to be off the water by sunset and out of the park 30 minutes after, so prior to daylight savings time (12 March), student-athletes may finish slightly earlier than 6:30pm and the bus may arrive back at Woodson slightly earlier than 7:00pm)

  • The bus roster will be distributed to facilitate Car Pools. Additionally there is a Carpool Interest Sign-Up for anyone who is looking to carpool to and from practices on Saturdays or Non-Bus days.  Please sign up if you are willing to drive other student-athletes or if you need assistance in driving your student-athlete to and from practice. This is a way to get families connected, who are interested in carpooling. It does not ensure rides.
  • A parent/guardian for each rider must chaperone the bus for at least one practice days, or a $50 fine will be imposed
  • Due to the reduced number of riders this year, parents/guardians are encouraged to sign up for two days per rower.
  • Sign Up for one slot per athlete now. Some chaperones may need to work three days, after initial sign ups we will reach out to parents to fill in as needed.
