1. REMINDER: Fall Green Days Continue This Week. We’re excited to see so many athletes joining us for fall Green Days. Saturday’s cool morning weather felt great. Thank you! Remember, Green Days run Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays until October 19th (full schedule below). Returning rowers and new recruits are welcome to participate in fall Green Days. If you’re coming to your first ever green day practice to learn about Crew, please make sure you come on a Tuesday or a Saturday to receive an on-the-water orientation with one of our coaching staff. Everyone should SIGN UP HERE so we have a head count for Green Days! 


The remaining fall Green Days are:

 

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays in October: 8, 10, 15, and 17 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm

  • Saturdays in October: 12, and 19 from 8 to 10 am 



Returning Rowers/ Coxswains need a VHSL physical dated after May 1, 2019. Please turn into WTW Athletic Trainer, Rm. C158. Allow up to 5 business days for processing. If you are turning in your forms and wish to participate in a Green Day immediately, request a yellow acknowledgement slip at the trainer’s office.


Novice Rowers/ Coxswains need to complete the following:


1. VHSL Physical Form turned in to the WTW Athletic Trainer’s office, rm C158 at Woodson. If you are turning in your forms and wish to participate in a Green Day immediately, request a yellow acknowledgement slip at the trainer’s office.

2. Emergency Care Form 

3. Completed Swim Test (See below)

4. Sign-up to attend Fall Green Days on Sign-Up Genius

5. Sign the US Rowing Waiver (we will email a link to this document to new rowers who sign up for fall Green Days).


There is no shuttle bus; therefore your own transportation is required to and from all Green Day practices. All sessions are at Sandy Run Regional Park (10450 Van Thompson Road, Fairfax Station, VA). 

 

2. NEW: WTW Crew Craft Show! The Craft Show is one of our most important fundraising opportunities and a great chance for parents and athletes to get volunteer credit. We urgently need help promoting the show this weekend (10/12) at the Fairfax Fall Festival. If you can’t join us for the craft show, this is a great way to support the event. Sign up here


We also need volunteers to support the Craft Show bake sale and help vendors get set on the day of the show. You can learn more about the craft show here and sign up now to volunteer.


3. COMING SOON: Parent Information Session: Please join us on Thursday, October 17 from 7-9 PM for the 2019-2020 Parent’s Season Kick-off Meeting in the WT Woodson High School Cafeteria B. This is for parents of new and returning rowers/coxswains. We have a lot of information to share about the registration process and other changes this season so please plan to join us.


4. NEW: Graphic Artist Help Needed: If you’ve got graphic design skills and your own equipment, the crew boosters need you. We have some design needs and would love to work with a crew parent who wants to help. Get in touch with the VP for Communication about volunteering at wtwcrewcommunications@gmail.com. Thanks!


5. NEW: VASRA Concession Stand Operator Position Open: If you have small business and/or small team leadership skills, VASRA — the organization which operates our regattas — needs someone to lead the management of the two concession stands at the course during events. The previous manager prepared detailed instructions, and will be available to meet with a new concessions lead to help guide them in this primary profit-earning duty for VASRA. This is a great way to help WTW Crew and all the competitors participating in our rowing season. If you want to know more, contact Joe Hester, Woodson's VASRA representative, at wtwcrewvasra@gmail.com.
