Worried about how your student will get to and from practice? We have options.
Winter: Commuting From TJ to Home
During Winter Conditioning, rowers will need to organize transportation to take them home from TJ at 6:15 PM. On Wednesdays, late buses are available to deliver students to local hubs; fore example, one late bus stops at Centreville HS and Chantilly HS. For transportation on other weekdays, parents can create area-based carpools so that each parent will only have to drive students once or twice a week. Parents, also consider reaching out to experienced rowers who live in your area that may be able to drive your student home.
Spring: Commuting From TJ To River
Freshman Rowers: Transportation is provided from TJ to the river each afternoon. We arrange a charter bus to bring novice rowers to the river. Unless parents or TJ Crew siblings can drive novice rowers to the river, the bus is required for novices. The charter bus for the 2019 season will cost $___.__; you can reserve a spot here. Additionally, parents of novices riding the bus must sign up here to chaperone the bus on any day they're available.
Experienced Rowers: We offer a carpool assurance program for experienced rowers riding in Student or Parent driven carpools--if your carpool is temporarily disrupted, you can reserve a temporary bus spot at this link.
Spring: Commuting From River to Home
As with Winter Conditioning, rowers must arrange their own transportation home from the river during the Spring. Before the season begins, we will compile the whole team's addresses onto a Google Map template. Novice parents can use this map, showing the addresses of every returning and novice member of the team, to organize carpools.
