We look forward to welcoming all our new rowers to this program on Monday, Sept. 18th at Whitman High School.
The Women should report to the lobby outside the auditorium at 3:00pm. Practice will run from 3:00pm -4:45pm. The Men's practice will begin at 4:45pm, and they too should gather in the lobby outside the auditorium. Their practice will run from 4:45pm-6:00pm.
More details will follow from the coaches, thank you.
We ask all Rower families to create two (2) SportsEngine accounts - 1 for the parent doing the registering; 1 for the rower being registered (note: each account requires a distinct email). Each account will then be invited to affiliate with our site so that we can ensure you are receiving all our Club emails, registration alerts, regatta updates and opportunities to volunteer. You must have these two (2) accounts, and be logged into them, to stay informed.
Please create your accounts first, by clicking on the CREATE AN ACCOUNT button in the top left hand section of our home page (above). You must go through the activation process to be connected with our team.
All Novice Rowers are entitled to transportation, Monday-Friday from Whitman High School to Thompson Boat Center. Additional, Rowers if chosen by lottery as Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors will also be entitled to ride the bus. The schedule for Novice Men and Novice Women breaks down as outlined below:

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th
If you are an incoming Freshman, or if you are a Whitman student who has never rowed before we encourage you to consider Whitman Crew! We are looking for motivated, athletic, dedicated and strong individuals with a team attitude. No prior experience is required, but experience with prior team sports is helpful.
Learn to Row will begin on September 18th and will run for approximately six weeks concluding in or around October 28th with a demonstration regatta. Practices run five days a week after school in the afternoons, and transportation to and from Thompson Boat Center (TBC) is provided as part of your registration fee. All participants who register are required to have a current physical, complete the SR8 County Pre-Participation form, and take a Whitman Crew delivered swim test prior to starting the program.
The swim test involves: swimming, clothed in shorts and shirt, for six lengths of a private pool without stopping; treading water for five minutes; and catching and donning a flotation device thrown to the Rower in the water.
Each Rower should come prepared to swim in shorts and a shirt (bring a towel, and change of clothes for after if desired).
