  5. Launch Driver Training, March 16th
  6. Upcoming Dates Through April

1. NEW: Practice Today. Although today, Monday, is an early release day, we still have practice at the regular time. Bus pick-up/drop-off will be in the usual place at the regular times.

2. REMINDER: Parent Away Regatta Meeting this Wednesday, March 13th from 7-9pm in WT Woodson Cafeteria B. We will provide important information regarding Away Regattas and when you arrive we will provide you with your volunteer requirements credit status. Our first away regatta, St. Andrews, is less than a month away on March 30th.

3. REMINDER: Team Pictures at the river this Friday, March 15th - athletes need their uniform (which will be delivered to a practice this week). You can send in the order form and check with your student-athlete on March 15th or order at lifetouchsports.com after the pictures are taken. We will have more forms available at the Parent Away Regatta Meeting.

4. REMINDER: Have you signed up for your VASRA volunteer requirement yet? We have two sign-ups now.

The first one is for volunteer slots during the regattas, All shifts on this sign-up take place at regattas held at Sandy Run, 10450 Van Thompson Road, Fairfax Station.

The second sign-up is to help the VASRA Concession Stands Coordinator each week to shop and stock the concession stands. Here is the sign-up genius for these volunteer slots the Fridays before regattas.

We have many boat driver positions still open in the first VASRA sign-up. If you haven’t taken Launch Boat Driver training, there is training on March 16th which you can sign-up for below in #3.

We are fortunate this year to have many new families and ask at this time that each family sign up for one VASRA volunteer slot. If we do need to impose our 2nd volunteer requirement, the team will be informed.

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.

5. REMINDER: Launch Boat Driver Training on March 16th from noon-2pm. Two slots left. If you're interested in driving a launch boat during one of our regattas, this is the training for you. It will qualify you for the VASRA driver jobs which are assigned to each participating team and MUST be filled (or our team is fined and the regatta may not run smoothly). You will notice in the VASRA Volunteer sign-ups above, WTW Crew has many driver positions to fill. Being a Launch Driver gets you the best seat in the house at regattas! All are welcome and anyone can learn. Sign-up here.
