Hello and happy holidays to all,

We hope all Woodson families are enjoying a safe and restful winter break. We are cautiously moving forward with planning for our season while monitoring the COVID-19 situation as we all are. See below for news about registration, winter conditioning and more. 

In this email (details below):

  1. Registration Coming Soon

  2. Winter Conditioning

  3. Woodson Oars Available

  4. Fundraising Thank You

  1. Registration Coming Soon: We’re putting the finishing touches on the registration for what will definitely be a unique rowing season.

    Dues this year will remain the same as the 2019-2020 season:

    New Rower - $775
    Returning Rower - $925

    We will only accept payment by credit card through the registration website. Due to the uncertainty of this year’s season, we have tried to structure our dues in a way that would be fair to the student-athletes if the season doesn’t follow a normal schedule, but also allow the Association to have adequate resources available to cover our day-to-day and annual expenses.

    For this year, the registration/payment schedule is:

    New Rowers
    First dues payment upon registration (coming soon): $150
    Second payment, 2/15/21: $312.50
    Final payment, 3/15/21: $312.50

    Returning Rowers
    First dues payment upon registration (coming soon): $150
    Second payment, 2/15/21: $387.50
    Final payment, 3/15, 21: $387.50

    The first dues payment is considered a registration fee and is non-refundable.

    Second dues payment: If on February 15th, 2021, all the health metrics and FCPS policies indicate that the Spring Sports season will start as planned, our registration system will automatically charge the credit card on file for the amount listed above. This 2nd payment will be non-refundable once paid.

    Third dues payment: If on March 15th, 2021, all the health metrics and FCPS policies indicate that the Spring Sports season will start as planned on April 12th, our registrations system will automatically charge the credit card on file for the amount listed above. However, if necessary, we will delay processing this third and final payment as late as two weeks prior to our first on-the-water practice. If the on-the-water season is cancelled in its entirety due to the global health pandemic, this 3rd payment will also be cancelled and the credit card on file will not be charged.

    We are finalizing the registration process now and will send out complete instructions soon. This will include a link to register for the team as well as a link to the new online emergency care and concussion training process required by FCPS. In the meantime, if you have any questions about registration, please contact our membership team at wtwcrewmembership@gmail.com.

  2. Winter Conditioning: Currently, the Woodson Athletic Director has paused out-of-season activities for all spring sports (which includes rowing). While we await word on the resumption of activities, we are preparing for safe and unique winter conditioning activities. Ergs will be staged near the Woodson outdoor basketball courts in order for students to get into shape while maintaining social distance and remaining outdoors. We’ll notify athletes when we have a schedule for kicking off winter conditioning.

    In a change from previous years, to participate in Winter Conditioning, students must be registered in our system and have their Woodson emergency care and concussion awareness information up to date — as well as have a sports physical on file with the Athletic Trainer dated later than May 1, 2020.

  3. Woodson Oars Available: Six lucky families won the bidding and took home Woodson rowing oars in our virtual silent auction. There are two more oars available if you have a rec room in need of that perfect crew design element: You can take one home for a donation of $200 or best offer. Contact our Fundraising chair, Amelia DeSorrento at wtwcrewfundraising@gmail.com to find out how to get your own.

  4. THANK YOU: Thank you so much for participating in all the fundraising activities we needed in the first half of the school year to make our season possible. Between our online auction, wreath sale and restaurant nights, we’ve made strong progress on closing the gap caused by the pandemic which forced us to cancel our in-person craft sale and face-to-face activities like tag days. Look for more opportunities to help the team in the new year and thanks again! 

  5. Woodson High Weight Room: You may have heard that the Woodson Athletic Boosters are working to improve the fitness and weight room at the high school. Help the Boosters with a project that will benefit every athlete at Woodson, including our rowers: https://gf.me/u/y5txci
