1. REMINDER: Fall Green Days Start This Week. Returning rowers and new recruits are welcome to participate in fall Green Days. Coaches ask that novice rowers attend their first Green Day on either 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 fall Green Days are:

 

  • September 24 and 26 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm and Saturday, September 28 from 8 to 10 am 

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays in October: 1, 3, 8, 10, 15, and 17 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm

  • Saturdays in October: 5, 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

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: Restaurant Fundraiser: Join us at Noodles & Co on Main Street in Fairfax Thursday, October 3rd from 4 to 8 PM for another WTW Crew Fundraiser. Be sure to bring or show this flyer to make sure the team benefits from your meal!


3. REMINDER: Launch Driver Training on Saturday, October 5th. Launch drivers have the best seats on the Occoquan, carrying referees down the course right behind your athlete’s boat. Woodson must deliver launch drivers to participate in the local regattas, or our team will be fined. WE NEED YOU! All are welcome and anyone can learn.


Coach Tylander will teach a Launch Driver class on Saturday, October 5th from 10:30am to 12:30pm (2 hours).  Attendance is limited to the first six people to sign up and is open to any WTW Crew parent/guardian – anyone can learn. So become a Launch Boat Driver, qualify to meet a VASRA volunteer requirement, and follow the racers down the course! Sign up here!


4. SAVE THE DATE: 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.

USRowing also has a lot of good information on its website.
