We offer a number of recruiting events at which potential rowers can learn more about our team from coaches, captains, and current team members.
8th Period Interest Meetings
8th period Friday A block - dates TBD
We give a presentation to potential rowers to inform them about our team, from our Winter Conditioning to our Spring Travel Regattas. Interest meetings can be found on Ion; they are marked as special events and typically take place on Friday A blocks.
8th Period Conditioning
8th period B blocks, Wednesdays and Fridays
During TJ's designated 8th period activity blocks, we teach freshmen to use ergs (indoor rowing machines), introduce them to our family, and tell them more about rowing. These will likely start in mid-December. You can sign up for these conditioning periods on Ion.
Sandy Run Regional Park
Our dedicated coaches and captains provide interested students and parents with tours of our rowing facilities at Sandy Run Regional Park (10450 Van Thompson Rd, Fairfax Station, VA 22039). Students also go out on the water in a boat with experienced TJ Crew rowers.
