Captains Corner - May 2012

posted May 30, 2012, 6:34 PM by TJ Crew Webmaster

This marks the end of spring 2012, a very exciting and successful season for all of our boats! From Occoquan regattas on into the championship season, we demonstrated our strength and determination, finishing with spectacular results at Ted Phoenix, VASRA States, Stotesbury, and SRAA Nationals.  All of the rowers should be proud of their accomplishments.  Along with our athletes, the team would not be nearly as great without our coaches, booster board members, and many dedicated parents. We offer them a huge thanks, everyone deserves a pat on the back.  It’s hard to say goodbye to our seniors, but after such a successful year, we are looking forward to improvements and strength gained throughout the 2012-2013 school year!

While summer demands vacation and relaxation, make sure to take advantage of this time to improve your fitness and get even faster for next spring.  Think about your goals for the offseason and next year. Make a workout plan, rent an erg, do a summer rowing program! Think about getting faster.  Races are won in the offseason. We look forward to seeing everyone ready for winter training this November!

We will keep you updated with information regarding car washes and other activities throughout the summer!  If you need anything or have questions at all feel free to contact us.  Get excited! The offseason has only just begun.
