The 2023 Summer Crew Registration is live. The registration link is here
The Programs are open to rising 7th graders, (entering 7th grade in September) and above
Sculling is open to 10th graders and above who have 2 years of competitive rowing experience.
There are three sessions each of:
Novice Crew (7:15-9am), Intermediate Crew (7-8:45am), and Sculling (6:45-8:15).
Summer Crew is a great way for rising 7th through rising 12th graders to learn to row, build your skills, stay in shape and have fun! Alexandria Crew Boosters offers a variety of four-week, summer rowing programs at the Dee Campbell Rowing Center.
1. Can I miss registration or up to a week of the program?
Registration for Summer Crew is only available online. We will not accept in-person registration. We will accept online registrations until our program is full. The programs are meant to be fun and not super competitive. A week missed is no big deal (just let your coach know!) but we cannot offer refunds for missed sessions.
2. Which program is appropriate for a high school rower?
Sculling is for experienced/varsity rowers to learn how to scull or work on their current skills. Intermediate Sweep is for rowers who have at least one competitive year (spring racing season). Novice Sweep is for brand new rowers.
3. Can rowers from other school participate?
Yes! Rowers can be from any school system and still participate in our program.
4. Do I need a swim test or physical?
Rowers should have physicals on file at their schools and parents will attest that their rowers are in appropriate physical health to row. Sculling or Intermediate rowers who rowed for Titan Rowing in the spring do NOT need a new swim test for the summer. All other rowers (Youth Novices or rowers from other schools) must take the swim test. We will offer swim tests on (TBD) at 1:00 pm at Chinquapin Recreation Center on King St. next to Alexandria City High School. Other times will be arranged for make up testing.
5. What are the required ages of rowers?
Summer Crew is available for all rising 7th through rising 12th graders.
