Parent Open House: Coming up August 26
We welcome new and returning parents to attend an open boat house at Sandy Run Boathouse. It will be Saturday, August 26, at 1 PM - 4 PM. This is the boathouse our team practices out of and you will have a chance to see our boats and equipment. You will also meet other parents and have an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the sport of rowing. The address is: Sandy Run Boathouse, Van Thompson Rd, Fairfax Station, VA 22039.
For new parents with students interested in signing up for Fall Rowing, this is a great time to meet other families and organize carpools.
Join TJ Rowing for Fall Rowing (Green Days)
Green Days are Fall Rowing for TJ Crew: And we want you to join us! Green Days are three days a week, every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday after school starting August 28 until November 2. Practice times will be from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM/Sunset. It is a great opportunity to learn to row, and this year we will also be offering Varsity Fall practice, so it's for all rowers: new and returning! Participation is strongly encouraged. Practice is at our Sandy Run Boathouse.
Transportation is not provided, so we need carpools and to figure out who is driving (which helps us figure out carpools for spring). We always need additional drivers to help get our rowers to the river on Green Days. In the Spring, for the full season, there will be a practice bus and more experienced rowers who can drive. In the meantime, thank you to all of the parents who are helping with the driving.
