Coaching Policies & Procedures

The core philosophy of the program is teaching the athletes how to achieve excellence through discipline, hard work, and perseverance. This is done by providing a structured, safe, and comfortable environment for the kids to interact and learn about the sport. Opportunities are provided for students with a wide range of athletic abilities to become highly trained, competitive, and successful student athletes. Team members build strength and endurance; develop time-management and self-discipline skills, and the confidence that comes with being an athlete.

 Our goal is to field competitive boats in as many categories as feasible. Rowing is a sport of discipline and teamwork as each athlete learns to choreograph their movements in perfect harmony with one another on the water. This sport doesn’t stray from the idea that if you do the work, you will go far and put yourself in a position to perform well. Woodson crew follows an athlete-centered and coach driven structure. The Woodson coaching staff preaches maintaining a competitive environment, one where the rowers want to win races, but realize this intrinsically.

“We are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence.”

-Vince Lombardi
