Practice Bus Information 2018

The W.T. Woodson Crew Boosters contracted with a commercial transportation company to provide bus service from school to the Occoquan for on the water practices. Each trip to and from the river must have a parent chaperone.

BUS SERVICE:
  • The first day of bus service is Tuesday, February 20 and the last is Wednesday, May 23. 
  • Standard Weekday Practice: 
    • The bus will depart from WTW Parking Lot off Whitacre Rd, no later than 3:30pm, and will return to same location at WTW, approximately 7:00pm. 
    • NOTE: Sandy Run Regional 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 (11 March), student-athletes may finish slightly earlier than 6:30pm and the bus may arrive back at Woodson slightly earlier than 7:00pm. 
  • Spring Break Practice (March 26-30): 
    • No contract has been established for a Spring Break bus yet 
    • If interested, please ensure you are signed up on the Sign Up Genius no later than Thursday, March 8th so we can determine whether there is enough interest to keep costs below $120 per rider for the week (need a min of 28 riders) 
NOTE: BUS SERVICE IS NOT PROVIDED:
  • On ANY Friday or ANY Saturday (except the first Friday, 23 Feb, the bus WILL run) 
  • On April 2 and April 16 (no school those days) 
  • 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 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. 
CHAPERONING:
  • Due to the reduced number of riders this year, every rider’s parents/guardians must sign up to chaperone TWO days per each athlete. 
  • A $50 fine will be imposed for each missed chaperone commitment. 
  • Chaperones are responsible for arriving on time and checking in rowers as they board the bus and maintaining order on the bus during the trip 
  • Sign Up for TWO slots per athlete BEFORE February 20; and please fill the days prior to Spring Break before signing up for any of the slots after Spring Break. After initial sign ups we will reach out to parents to fill-in as needed. 
  • Without a chaperone, the bus will not depart the school. 
  • CHAPERONE SIGN UP GENIUS: Practice Bus Chaperone Duty Sign-Up
