Whitman Crew is happy to announce the projected dates for our Novice Learn to Row Program for the Fall of 2016. We anticipate the Learn to Row Program running from Monday, September 19th - Friday, October 28th. The dates are subject to change.
The program is open to any incoming Freshman at Whitman High School, or to Whitman upperclassman who are interested in learning how to become a rower. No previous rowing experience is required, but prior experience in other team sports is always welcome.
Rowing is a year around sport, but our Fall program is catered only to those who are new to the sport and learning it for the first time.
In advance of our informational meeting we ask you to note two very important things: (1) Although we don't hold tryouts, all prospective rowers are required to participate in a mandatory swim test. We will post those dates and locations shortly for sign up. (2) All athletes are required to complete the SR8 Pre-Participation Health form. Other forms are required, but the SR8 requires the athlete's doctor's signature. Please plan accordingly, as the signed form will need to be provided to our registrar during the novice registration process prior to any rower getting on the water. You will find the form below for your reference to download.
We will be hosting our Annual Learn to Row Informational session for incoming Whitman Freshman or Upperclassman new to the sport and interested in learning to row this Fall through our intensive 6-week training program. Transportation to and from the boathouse in Georgetown is included in your registration fee, and practices are after school.
IF YOU ATTENDED THE SPRING INFORMATIONAL SESSION AT PYLE, YOU SHOULD STILL COME TO THIS MEETING. INFORMATION WILL BE MORE DETAILED AND COACHES WILL BE AVAILABLE TO SPEAK WITH THE PROSPECTIVE ROWERS.
The meeting will be held in the Whitman Auditorium beginning at 7:30pm on Thursday, September 8th. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to the great sport of rowing. Whitman Crew is a club sport, but our athletes are still eligible to earn their varsity letter if they become part of the team. No tryouts are required for participation.
