  4. Sign-up to attend Green Days on Sign-Up Genius
  5. Sign the USRowing Waiver (we will provide this to you once you sign-up on the Sign-Up Genius site) 
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: We all love W.T. Woodson Crew! Let’s grow our team together. Share the enthusiasm for your team by taking every opportunity to speak to other students and encouraging them to join the team. They can visit us at Cav Kickoff and attend Green Days (dates above) to give us a try. Parents, you know other folks that are looking for a great experience for their student-athlete as well. Please use your networking channels (other teams, PTSO, volunteer connections, work, other coaches, places of worship, community centers or swimming pools) to promote our team. We will have a table at Back to School Night on Sept. 6th so all parents with questions can stop by for a visit there or at Cav Kickoff with their student.
