Thank you for hosting and to the parents who have signed up to help. Here are the dinner and RAFT food assignments for all families.  Note these are not in alphabetical order, but ordered by dish type. If an athlete’s last name falls between the names listed then that is their food assignment.


Please bring the assigned food items to the pre-regatta dinner promptly at 7pm, even if your student-athlete is unable to attend the dinner. 


2. NEW: Hey Day Treats Needed. Our team captains will be representing the team at Hey Day on April 26th and they need your support! Please sign-up to make or purchase sweet treats for them to sell at the team booth. Donations should be packaged for individual sale, the cuter the better! 

All baked goods can be given to any team captain on Thursday evening or dropped off at the Woodson front office by 9am on Friday, 4/26, please make sure they are clearly labeled. Questions or concerns, contact Jenn Ros wtwcrewmembership@gmail.com.


3. REMINDER: Stotesbury Registration Information. By Thursday, the coaches will notify those students who will be going to Stotesbury. You can find all the forms and links on the wtwcrew.org front page. Forms and payments are due no later than May 4th. This includes dropping off or sending the completed forms:

  • Parent Permission Form;
  • Emergency Contact Form (if not already submitted or you need to provide an update);
  • Luggage Form;  
  • Student Code of Conduct;  
  • Medication Form; and
  • $385 check made payable to WTW Crew Boosters and mailed or dropped off to Lesley Kowalski at 8306 Chapel Lake Rd, Annandale, VA 22003. You may also pay via PayPal. If  you use PayPal, please note on your paperwork (which must still be dropped off or sent in) that you paid through PayPal.
  • Also, if parents and family members are attending and would like to eat with the student-athletes, please fill out this form and send appropriate payment for these meals separate from the payment for the student-athlete fee of $385.


Packets and payments can also be turned in at the start of the Pasta Dinners Friday, April 26 and May 4. Thank you to those who have already submitted their forms and payments.  


4. REMINDER: Rummage Sale on April 28th 8-2pm. Shifts available for any parent and/ or rower either needing volunteer hours or just enjoying setting up a yard sale! We have lots of treasures to sell at the Yard Sale!  We do have room for more, and we could really use more folding tables and another clothing rack or two!  All shifts will be at the Sandino's home, 8600 Canterbury Drive  Annandale. Please sign-up here to loan supplies or volunteer.


5. UPDATE: Volunteer Opportunities Available. Thank you again to the student-athletes and parents who have signed up to help in various roles so far!  We do still have some volunteer opportunities available. Here are the sign-up genius links for the Halley ES Shuttle (one slot left), RAFT (three slots left for next weekend), and VASRA (especially need boat drivers). 


IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you are not able to fulfill your obligation, please don’t just remove your name from the sign-up genius, but please also notify our volunteer coordinator at wtwcrewvolunteer@gmail.com so we can ensure we fill the vacant slot and avoid being fined if it is a VASRA slot.


6. REMINDER: No Bus Friday. You can use the #carpool channel in Slack to coordinate rides with other parents. 


7. NEW: Al Urquia Regatta this Saturday. Student-athletes will be told which boat they will be on and what time to arrive. The schedule is reversed this weekend so the 8s are in the morning and the 4s are in the afternoon. As a general rule and unless told otherwise by a coach, rowers must be at the boathouse no later than two hours before their scheduled race, and coxswains must be there for the coxswains’ meeting.  


The heat sheets are not available yet, so we recommend following @VASRAResults on Twitter and watching our Home Page for more information as well.


We also want to remind everyone to follow the posted speed limits driving to and from the river and in Sandy Run Park. 


REMINDER: If you want to save some money (it costs $20 to park at Sandy Run during a regatta), you have the opportunity to use the Halley Elementary School (ES) at 8850 Cross Chase Cir, Fairfax Station, VA 22039 (formerly operated out of Silverbrook Elementary School) shuttle which is free to student-athletes and family members from our school and a few others who contribute to it.

posted Apr 4, 2019, 4:57 AM by WTW Crew Webmaster   [ updated Apr 4, 2019, 4:57 AM ]

  • No Bus Tomorrow (Friday)
  • Pre-Regatta Dinner Assignments for Tomorrow (Friday)
  • Walter Mess Regatta, Saturday
  • Volunteers
  • Parent Learn-to-Row, Sunday
  • Boat Christening, Sunday

1. REMINDER: No Bus This Friday. If you are in need of carpool options, please use the #carpool channel on our Slack account.

2. REMINDER: Pre-Regatta Dinner Food Assignments for all families. Our next pre-regatta dinner is this Friday from 7-9pm (* requires authentication). Thank you to the parents who have signed up to help. Here are the dinner and RAFT food assignments for all families. Please bring the assigned food items to the pre-regatta dinner, even if your student-athlete is unable to attend the dinner. If an athlete’s last name falls between the names listed then that is their food assignment.

3. REMINDER: Walter Mess Regatta this Saturday. Student-athletes should already know which boat they will be on and what time to arrive. As a general rule and unless told otherwise by a coach, rowers must be at the boathouse no later than two hours before their scheduled race, and coxswains must be there for the coxswains’ meeting.

The heat sheets are not available until later in the week, so we recommend following @VASRAResults on Twitter and watching our Slack Channel and Home Page for more information as well.

We also want to remind everyone to follow the posted speed limits driving to and from the river and in Sandy Run Park. If you park at Sandy Run, #VASRAParking on Twitter will provide updates on availability of parking on Saturday. 

SHUTTLE LOCATION CHANGE TO HALLEY ES: If you want to save some money (it costs $20 to park at Sandy Run during a regatta), you have the opportunity to use the Halley Elementary School (ES) (formerly operated out of Silverbrook Elementary School) shuttle which is free to student-athletes and family members from our school and a few others who contribute to it. 

This shuttle bus is for the use of the teams and families fro WT Woodson, Thomas Jefferson, West Springfield, Robinson, South County, Madison, Oakton, and Langley. 

Due to a renovation at Silverbrook Elementary School, the free shuttle will now operate out of Halley Elementary School at 8850 Cross Chase Cir, Fairfax Station, VA 22039. 
  • If you are planning on parking at Halley, you have two options. You can either drop off your rower/coxswain first, then circle back to Halley, or head straight to Halley and take the shuttle along with your rower/coxswain. If you choose the latter, be sure to allow for extra time as the shuttle needs to get through the same traffic to get to the park.
  • We have access to all three lots around Halley, which, if we park two to a bus lane, equals about 120 spaces. The main parking lot is behind the building which we can use. We are welcome to park on either street leading to the school. Please use common sense and abide by regular street rules – do not park on a yellow curb, do not block anyone’s driveway and do not park in front of a fire hydrant. You will be towed. Please note: There is no handicapped parking in the bus parking area.
  • The bus will pick up passengers at the red X in the first picture below. It is across from Door 3 in the bus parking lot. The shuttle will drop you off at Sandy Run at parking lot C in the second picture below.



  • It is approximately a 10 minute shuttle ride to the park, but please plan to arrive at the school at least 1-1/2 to 2 hours before race time to allow ample time to get to the Grandstands at Sandy Run to watch your race.
  • The shuttle bus will start approximately two hours before the first scheduled race and last bus two hours after the last race.
  • The first departure from Halley is scheduled for 6:30 am. The second departure is 15 minutes later.
  • The buses will continue this :00/:30 and :15/:45 schedule all day, with staggered 30 minute lunches mid-day.
  • The last bus will depart Sandy Run 2 hours after the last race.
  • Several shuttle routes share Lot “C” at Sandy Run. The designated location for the Halley shuttle stop is against the tree line in the middle of the lot.
To help get ready for regatta day, here are some highlights of what is available on our website:
  • Home Page – Key information for the next regatta will be found on the home page, including regatta heat sheet when available (Woodson races highlighted), links to applicable sign up geniuses, any last minute volunteer requirements, etc.

Returning rowers should wear their unisuits, novice rowers should wear their white 2018 -2019 team t-shirt. If you already ordered photos online, the order should still apply to this new photo day. If you have an order form, you can send the form and payment with your student-athlete today. If not, we should have an opportunity to order photos online after they are taken.

3. NEW: Pre-Regatta Dinner Food Assignments for all families. Our next pre-regatta dinner is this Friday from 7-9pm (* requires authentication). Thank you to the parents who have signed up to help. Here are the dinner and RAFT food assignments for all families. Please bring the assigned food items to the pre-regatta dinner, even if your student-athlete is unable to attend the dinner. If an athlete’s last name falls between the names listed then that is their food assignment.

4. REMINDER: No Bus This Friday. If you are in need of carpool options, please use the #carpool channel on our Slack account.

5. NEW: Walter Mess Regatta this Saturday. Student-athletes will be told which boat they will be on and what time to arrive. As a general rule and unless told otherwise by a coach, rowers must be at the boathouse no later than two hours before their scheduled race, and coxswains must be there for the coxswains’ meeting.

The heat sheets are not available until later in the week, so we recommend following @VASRAResults on Twitter and watching our Home Page for more information as well.

We also want to remind everyone to follow the posted speed limits driving to and from the river and in Sandy Run Park.

SHUTTLE LOCATION CHANGE TO HALLEY ES: If you want to save some money (it costs $20 to park at Sandy Run during a regatta), you have the opportunity to use the Halley Elementary School (ES) (formerly operated out of Silverbrook Elementary School) shuttle which is free to student-athletes and family members from our school and a few others who contribute to it.

Due to a renovation at Silverbrook Elementary School, the free shuttle will now operate out of Halley Elementary School at 8850 Cross Chase Cir, Fairfax Station, VA 22039.
  • If you are planning on parking at Halley, you have two options. You can either drop off your rower/coxswain first, then circle back to Halley, or head straight to Halley and take the shuttle along with your rower/coxswain. If you choose the latter, be sure to allow for extra time as the shuttle needs to get through the same traffic to get to the park.
  • We have access to all three lots around Halley, which, if we park two to a bus lane, equals about 120 spaces. We are welcome to park on either street leading to the school. Please use common sense and abide by regular street rules – do not park on a yellow curb, do not block anyone’s driveway and do not park in front of a fire hydrant. You will be towed. Please note: There is no handicapped parking in the bus parking area.

  1. St Andrews Registration
  2. Additional VASRA Volunteer Opportunities Open

Let’s get ready to pull for Woodson at St. Andrew’s!

1. REMINDER: St. Andrew’s Regatta is this Saturday, March 30th. There is no pre-regatta dinner on Friday. This link has all the information you need to prepare for the trip, what to bring, address, schedule for the day, and contact information. Here is a link to the school as well which has a good video and pictures for those interested.

The buses will depart Woodson HS at 7:30am on Saturday. All students should be at Woodson HS by 7:15am. If a student will be bringing medication, please ensure they come with a signed Student Medication Form and meds in a plastic bag marked with their name.

NEW: Racing is currently scheduled to begin at 1pm. Races will run every 15 minutes, generally starting with the youngest/novice boats and ending with Varsity boats. They will alternate boys and girls boats. Here is a link to the map of the racing course. Our tent will be located across from St. Andrew’s where it states “Returning boats proceed single file.”

Boys teams racing March 30th:
St. Andrew's
WT Woodson
Ocean City
St. Augustine
LaSalle
McLean

Girls teams racing March 30th:
St. Andrew's
WT Woodson
Ocean City
TC Williams
Moorestown
McLean

As a reminder, please sign-up here if parent(s) are attending (volunteering or not) this Saturday, March 30th.

For family members driving to the regatta, here is the GPS address for where our team will be located: 560 Noxontown Road, Townsend DE 19734. Go past the school driveway and turn into the picnic area across the pond from the school. Follow the “Crew” signs.

We recommend that parents attending bring chairs and possibly blankets to better enjoy the regatta. We also recommend wearing layers as the weather can quickly change (and has in previous years). The area we watch the regatta from and where we set up the food tent has been muddy in previous years as well.

NEW: The location we are at for the St. Andrew’s Regatta has no potable water source, so we encourage parents and student-athletes to bring reusable water bottles.

2. UPDATE: Additional VASRA Volunteer Opportunities Open, If you have not already signed up for a VASRA Volunteer opportunity, we have added some new slots and you may sign-up here. All shifts on this signup take place at regattas held at Sandy Run, 10450 Van Thompson Road, Fairfax Station.

There are several dates, times, and locations within the park. (Please note: shifts with no ending times go until the work is done) Some jobs require a level of physical fitness or skill. Please check this link before you sign up to make sure you know what you are signing up for.

Update regarding team uniforms

posted Mar 26, 2019, 5:54 AM by WTW Crew Webmaster

Unfortunately, the supplier of our uniforms, JL Racing, has yet to provide us with a firm date of when we may expect our uniform shipment. JL Racing states that they experienced significant internal supply and logistics problems as a result of relocating their production facility. Further exasperating the problem is their slow response to each of my many inquiries. I can assure you that I will continue to hound them until we have full resolution and all items are received...even if it means a road trip to Philadelphia.

Regardless, regattas are happening, and we have uniform rules that must be abided by in order for our crews to be eligible to race on the Occoquan. Uniform rules are by boat, not by team. Therefore, we will provide a temporary solution by purchasing a matching tank top for all novices. We request that this tank top be worn with black spandex racing shorts. (most athletes already have these). Any novices that are rowing in upper boats will be accommodated from our team overstock of uniforms - similar to what we would have done for Polar Bear regatta.

St. Andrews (next weekend) does not have enforced uniform rules. The coaches will communicate their expectations to each boat as to what they should wear on the water. We request that your athlete wear either their 2018 / 2019 team shirt or the navy blue winter conditioning shirt on the trip.

Team photos - We have rescheduled team photos by Lifetouch to April 1st. We can't reschedule this again as we will miss the deadline for inclusion in the yearbook. If we do not get the uniforms by then, all returning rowers should wear their unisuits and all novices should wear their 2018/ 2019 team t-shirts for the photo.

Our team has used JL Racing for uniforms since unisuits became standard issue, in the early 1990s. They are a primary supplier of rowing uniforms internationally and, therefore, we are very surprised by the current situation. I can assure you that we are NOT the only VASRA team that is being affected by this issue. I have reached out to all other VASRA team booster board presidents and many of them share our concerns and are in the same situation that we are. If you feel compelled to lend your voice and share your frustration with JL Racing, you may send an email to them at customerservice@jlracing.com.

Our uniform chair, Babette Korn, and I will keep you updated as we know more. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

Pull For Woodson!

Thank You, St. Andrew’s Regatta, Dinner Host Needed, Parent Learn To Row, Boat Christening, etc.

1. NEW: Even though we didn’t have the Polar Bear Regatta, it was a great first “pre-regatta” dinner on Friday. Thank you to the McCarthy family for hosting, to our volunteers for keeping the evening running smoothly, and to our student-athletes who were all very well behaved and enjoyed the night bonding as a team. We also thank everyone for bringing their food assignments. There will be no food assignments or pre-regatta dinner this week as we get ready for our first away regatta on Saturday.

As a reminder, we send out urgent updates (such as schedule changes) via Slack before sending via email, tweet, or our website. If you are not on our Slack channels, please contact wtwcrewcommunications@gmail.com to be added. Also let us know if you are signed up for Slack, but need help getting push notifications.

2. UPDATE: St. Andrew’s Regatta is this Saturday, March 30th. As mentioned above, there is no pre-regatta dinner on Friday. This link has all the information you need to prepare for the trip, what to bring, address, schedule for the day, and contact information. Here is a link to the school as well which has a good video and pictures for those interested.

The buses will depart Woodson HS at 7:30am on Saturday. All students should be at Woodson HS by 7:15am. If a student will be bringing medication, please ensure they come with a signed Student Medication Form and meds in a plastic bag marked with their name.

We are still looking for food tent volunteers at St. Andrew’s. Please sign-up here to volunteer. We have noted that many parents noted on the St. Andrew’s Emergency Forms that they will be attending the regatta. We are trying to get an accurate head count for food and ask that you please sign-up here if parent(s) are attending (volunteering or not) this Saturday, March 30th

For family members driving to the regatta, here is the address for where our team will be located: 556 Noxontown Rd, Townsend, DE 19734. We recommend that parents attending bring chairs and possibly blankets to better enjoy the regatta. We also recommend wearing layers as the weather can quickly change (and has in previous years). The area we watch the regatta from and where we set up the food tent has been muddy in previous years as well.

3. NEW: We are still looking for a Pre-Regatta Dinner Host for April 5th Dinner. Sign-up here if you are available to host. For planning purposes, we have about 90 athletes on the team and most of them do attend the dinners. Host homes provide the disposable paper products (strong plates, forks, knives, etc.. no cups needed), serving utensils, and trash receptacles (1 per room recommended). Chaperones help with set-up, clean-up, and oversight. This is a working event for the volunteers. Credit: Host homes - 2 volunteer credits.

4. NEW: Parent Learn-to-Row: Sunday, April 7th 9-11am. Get a first hand look (and feel) of what rowing is all about at this special event. You will gain a new appreciation for how hard your rower works, and how easy they make it look. You will be coxed by our own coxswains and coached by our phenomenal coaching staff. Boats will go out in rain or shine. Space is limited. Please sign up here. After you are done with the learn-to-row, stay for the boat christening ceremony. (mentioned below)

6. NEW: Make-Up Tag Days. You may have received an email if your student did not complete the required number of Tag Days expected of each athlete. Tag Days are the team's largest fundraiser each year, and the only volunteer commitment in which we require all athletes participate. We understand that students have joined the team late, or that other commitments may have made it challenging to attend our scheduled tag day shifts. Therefore, we offer as an alternative an individual “Save a Tag Day” option. If you have any questions about this option, please contact our fundraising chair, Gina Clune at wtwcrewfundraising@gmail.com for assistance.

7. REMINDER: Spirit Wear: Spirit Wear has arrived! Most orders were distributed at the Pasta Dinner on Friday night. If your student-athlete was unable to attend, Team Captain, Marie Korn, will bring them to practice this week.

Polar Bear Regatta Cancelled

posted Mar 22, 2019, 12:28 PM by WTW Crew Webmaster   [ updated Mar 22, 2019, 12:28 PM ]

Due to the weather, the Regatta Director in consultation with the Chief Referee and Park Manager have cancelled the regatta. Water levels are such that access to the docks tomorrow is in question. There is currently over 4 feet of water going over the dam. Wind conditions are a further factor in the decision. While we know this is a disappointment, safety of athletes is the primary concern.
  • Athletes are still training at the river today, but they will be doing land workouts rather than going out on the water.
  • The practice bus is running as scheduled today.
  • We are still holding the pasta dinner tonight at the McCarthy's home.
  • Because the regatta tomorrow is cancelled - we are asking anyone that was assigned perishable RAFT items not to bring them (meats, eggs, fresh fruit.) Anyone with non-perishable RAFT items can still bring them and we will hold onto them for the St. Andrews trip next week.
  • St. Andrews regatta paperwork and payment are due today and can be dropped off at the pasta dinner.
  • Spirit wear orders are in and will be distributed at the pasta party this evening.
Pull For Woodson!
