Useful Information

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.

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

Come Row With Us

For 2023-2024:  TJ Crew is in its 32nd 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 in 2022, and our Women's Freshmen 8 won the Virginia State Championship the year before.

We have 100 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.

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

Since 1989, we have competed at State, National, and International competitions, winning numerous national medals and international acclaim. Our rowers form the most tight-knit and academically successful athletic community at TJ, with the highest graduating GPA of any sport in 2018. From the class of 2018 alone, our alumni went to row and study at schools including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and Duke University, just to name a few.
