​1.  ​
CCI Crew Sportswear Store is OPEN until 22 November

  • ​Please read the following information from Crew Sportswear Coordinator Tu'lann von Christierson:  
    • The WT Woodson Crew Spirit Wear store is now open!!!!  You can shop in the convenience of your own home with your personal credit card.
    • Please be aware that you are not required to purchase spirit wear.
    • You will purchase the uniform separately - approximately $125.  Your rower will be measured for that order sometime in January.  I will require a check before I order the uniform.
    • ​The store will be open until Sunday, November 22nd.   The items will be delivered the week of December 7th.  So you will have the items before the winter break.  I have a few items at my house for sizing questions.  If you want to bring your rower, please email or call me and we can arrange a time for you to come by. 
    • The Under Armour sweatshirt did run large last year. There are 2 new items, a rugby shirt and the blanket.  The crew gear bag is also a new style since the old one was discontinued.  It is a little larger.  
    • Each rower receive a white t-shirt as a part of the registration fee.  It will say Woodson Crew and can be worn on spirit days and to WTW white outs!  It will be given to your rower after dues have been paid.  Shirts will be delivered after the winter break. (I will take an order for shirts, for rowers and parents who wish to purchase additional shirts, before we place the order.) 
    • The “Splash” jacket that some of the rowers wear on the water is NOT part of this spirit wear order.  That jacket is made by the same company that makes the uniforms.  More information will follow on that later.
    • The following items can be personalized with your rowers information:  The bag and the soft shell jacket.  The cost of this embroidery is included in the cost of the item.   The jacket is usually embroidered on the arm with the rowers last name and graduation year.  You will be asked for that information when placing the order.  The bag is usually embroidered with the rowers first and last name and the graduation year.  You do not have to order the embroidery and you do not have to do what I suggest.  It is your choice, just ask your rower what they would like. 
    • The socks may not arrive before Christmas.  The design is stitched in the sock and the process takes a little longer.
