The WTW Crew website will always have the most relevant information you need to know, including anything urgent or time sensitive. Please check the site often. We also share important information on Twitter @WoodsonCrew

WTW Crew proudly recognizes its seniors Wyn Adams and Michael Yi who will be rowing their last race on the Occoquan this weekend, in Day 1 of the Virginia State Rowing Championships (VSRC). Pull for Woodson!

REMINDER: There will not be a practice bus this Friday, 5 May or Friday, 12 May.

The Stotesbury Regatta trip is 18-20 May in Philadelphia, PA. Stotesbury is the oldest and largest high school regatta in the US, and takes place annually on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. All race entries, to include alternate rowers/coxswains will be made at the discretion of the WTW Crew Head Coach. The deadline for turning in all completed athlete paperwork and fees is Friday, 5 May. Please deliver the full packet and check to Sissy Kutia, 5021 Mignonette Ct. Annandale, VA 22003.

Here are the links for the Stotesbury information sheet (which gives you all the details you need to know), the agenda, the checklist, and all the forms below which you will need to fill out and submit by 5 May. On Wednesday, 17 May, luggage will be turned-in, medication forms and medications reviewed from 6:45-8pm at WT Woodson High School door #5, near the wrestling room. Student-athletes must check in their own bag at the luggage drop off. Luggage will be stored in a locked room at school overnight and loaded prior to departure. Student-athletes will be responsible for packing medication forms and medications in their carry on luggage.
You can pre-order your Stotesbury Cup Competitor t-shirt! Regatta Wear is offering custom Stotesbury Cup Competitor shirts online, choice of long sleeve or short sleeve shirt; order by 8 May and pick up your shirt at the regatta! These are not sold by WTW Crew.

Rowers, plan on attending the pre-regatta dinner this week (requires authentication *). Please see the link for the food assignments (requires authentication *) this week (Pre-Regatta Dinner and VSRC Day 1 Regatta). Please be aware, those without assignments might be assigned something later this week if necessary. Food/Drink assignments are one p/athlete (not p/family) and change weekly. Thank-you for your help. 

The VASRA VSRC Day 1 Regatta this Saturday, 6 May, will be the championships for our Men’s 3rd 8+, Men’s Novice 8+, and Women’s Novice 8+. Varsity 1 & 2 boats will not be racing.

URGENT: We still have three VASRA launch driver volunteer slots to fill this weekend. Please visit the VASRA Regatta Volunteer Sign-Up site and sign-up for positions if you are available. We will also be posting our VASRA volunteer positions for VSRC Day 2, 13 May later today. If positions are not posted when you visit the site, please check back later. Each WTW Crew family has a requirement to fulfill at least two VASRA volunteer jobs during the season. Most volunteer jobs are on or around the water, please be sure to dress appropriately. Also, please arrive for check in at least 30 minutes before your scheduled sign up time. If you have questions about the job responsibilities, there are descriptions on the WTW Crew website. We encourage everyone to add a cell number on Sign-Up Genius so we can call AND text with any changes to any of the volunteer positions.

We are also in need of one or two Launch Dockmaster shadows to take over this WTW Crew permanent position next season. If you are interested, we are looking for a volunteer to shadow in the morning from 7am-11am at each of the VSRC regattas the next two weekends. Please email Amy at wtwcrewcommunications@gmail.com to sign-up for one of these positions.

URGENT: We also have two more RAFT volunteer opportunities available for 6 May. Here is the link to the RAFT volunteer opportunities.

Going to Stotesbury is an incredible experience for athletes and families alike. MANY parent volunteers are needed for this away regatta (even if you are not going to Stotesbury). Please sign-up here to volunteer.

NEW: Believe it or not, it is time to start planning for the 2017-2018 school year. The first step toward eligibility to participate in any preseason or after school athletic event is to complete a sports physical on an official VHSL Pre-participation Physical Examination (PPE) form (NEW FORM FOR 2017/18 SCHOOL YEAR-says FEB2017). The Woodson High School Athletic Training Department will be offering sports physicals at Woodson High School on 19 June. This successfully completed physical will be good for all sports and out of season practices (green days, yellow days, weight room workouts) for the 2017-2018 school year. This event is a fundraiser for the Woodson High School Athletic Training Department. The cost of the physicals is $50 when you register online ($60 at the door space permitting). You can register here. They are always looking for medical and non-medical volunteers to assist for the event. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Ms. Fickes, or click on the registration link to sign up.

Don’t forget the student and parent concussion education must also be completed annually!!
