Free Recruiting Webinar with Princeton University's Bill Manning

Interested in continuing your rowing career in college? Great! But for many high school athletes and parents, it is sometimes hard to know what to say during the recruiting process.
 
For this webinar Princeton University coach Bill Manning will focus on what to say and how to avoid key mistakes when you're talking to college coaches. You will learn the key questions to ask to help you come out ahead in the recruiting process. Coach Manning will also alert you to the strategies that many coaches consider when making their decisions for their next incoming class.
 
The College Recruiting webinar, which is FREE with your USRowing membership, will take place Tuesday, July 16, at 8 p.m. EDT.

INTERESTED IN ROWING IN THE FALL 2019?

Whitman Crew is one of the top DC-area competitive crew teams, with over 120 student-athlete participants, the largest sport at Whitman.  This year, the women’s and men’s teams are highly competitive at the national level, with both our female and male first varsity Boats medaling at the 2019 Stotesbury Cup in Philadelphia, the biggest national regatta for high school athletes.  Every year, female and male athletes go on to row at varsity and club programs at top colleges and universities.  We row on the Potomac at the Thompson Boat Center at the Georgetown waterfront, alongside of other competitive programs sponsored by local public and independent schools.  Our fall Learn to Row program run from mid September to late October and teaches rowing basics to interested students – freshman as well as sophomores, juniors and seniors who are new to the sport.  

Practices run five days a week after school in the late afternoon, and transportation to and from Thompson Boat Center (TBC) is provided as part of your registration fee.  The program culminates with a demonstration regatta in late October at the Georgetown waterfront. 

All participants who register are required to have a current physical, complete the SR8 County Pre-Participation form, and take a  short swim test (administered by Whitman Crew according to USRowing criteria) prior to being allowed on the water. 

For more information, read the slide deck presented at the spring recruiting event at Pyle Middle School.  If have questions or would like to be on our mailing list to receive updates about our Learn To Row program that will start in the fall,  email Joe Titlebaum at jtitlebaum@gmail.com.

Watch some videos put together by prior rowers.  Most of these students had never rowed a boat when they started.
