When you sign up your student-athlete for W.T. Woodson Crew and pay in full, they are considered to be members of the WTW Crew Team for the current academic year. In addition, each parent or guardian of a student-athlete who is a participant on WTW Crew is afforded a General Membership in the W.T. Woodson Crew Boosters Association. General Members are entitled to all privileges of the Association including the right to vote at the Annual Association Meeting for the Board of Directors and to hold office as a member of the Board of Directors if elected. Additional information may be found in the WTW Crew Handbook and ByLaws.

Payment Types

Basic dues may be paid by check or credit card. Payment by credit card is managed through the Ronin Racing website (see the Registration tab). Checks for basic dues, travel regatta fees, service requirement penalties, and bus transportation fees are to be mailed to the W.T. Woodson Crew Boosters Association, P.O. Box 2881, Fairfax, VA 22031. Checks are to be made payable to “W.T. Woodson Crew Boosters.” Payment for spirit wear and uniforms will be made directly to the respective vendors. Families with extenuating financial circumstances should contact the Association President to arrange a delayed payment schedule. In addition, limited scholarship funds may be available. All requests will be held in strictest confidence.

Discounts and Payment Deadlines

Dues for the current season must be paid by TBD. Early bird discounts of $50 per student-athlete are available if dues are paid in full by check no later than TBD. No early bird discount is offered when paying by credit card. Discount will be provided via a refund check from the WTW Crew Boosters Association. It will NOT be reflected in your Ronin statement. An additional discount of $50 per student-athlete is given when a family has more than one participating student-athlete. Dues may be paid by check in three equal installments with payments due on TBD. When paying installments by credit card, an immediate initial payment is recorded during Ronin registration, after which the subsequent payments will be automatically charged on TBD.

Refund Policy

Requests for refunds should be made in writing to the Membership Chairperson. Withdrawal requests made on behalf of returning student-athletes by TBD and freshman / novice student-athletes by TBD will be refunded in full, less any credit card processing fees. Withdrawals on behalf of returning student-athletes made during the first two weeks of on-the-water practice will be assessed a $300 penalty. No refunds of dues will be granted after the second week of on-the-water practice unless the student-athlete is cut (see Section 6 of the WTW Crew Handbook).
