What is Crew?

Crew is the sport of rowing. Boats are made of 8 rowers and a coxswain, who steers the boat. It is considered the ultimate team sport.


While many students join crew to increase their college admissions chances, TJ Crew rows because of our love of the sport, the joy of being on the water, our close friends in our boat, and the challenge of doing something hard. TJ Rowers are very organized and enjoy the consistent physical exercise that allows us to refocus our minds to do even better with classes.


Come Row With Us


TJ Crew is in its 31st year and we have both Men’s and Women’s Teams. We have a history of excellence, including the National Champions for Women's Varsity 8 in 1996 and 1999, and Men's Varsity 8 in 2004, 2006, and 2007. Our Men's Novice 8 won the Virginia State Championship this past year, and our Women's Freshmen 8 won the Virginia State Championship the year before.


We have 120 team members, and no prior experience is required. Year round rowing opportunities are available. TJ Crew "Learn to Row" is available in the Fall. Then join us for Winter Training, before the main Spring season starts. Over the summer, University Rowing Camps are available and past TJ Rowers have gone on to row for many top universities. Join us and let's row together.

Novice Makeup Swim Test

We are still trying to schedule a makeup swim test date. With most of the County Rec Center Pools closed until this past weekend, it has been difficult trying to schedule it.

Until a makeup test is scheduled, novice rowers still needing to take a swim test will be permitted at Green Days if they submit a signed waiver and attestation that they are able to complete the swim test. Submit it via email or bring it with you on your first day of practice. Novice rowers without a completed swim test or this signed waiver will not be allowed on the water.


If you have any questions about TJ Crew, you may reach out to our Parent Liaison, Shaista Keating at shaistakeating@gmail.com. She is a great resource for all new TJ Crew families.

We are TJHSST's Crew Team, a community composed of over 100 hard-working student athletes.
