It’s almost Spring, time to register for Spring Season rowing with WJ Crew! The Spring Season starts Monday, February 24 and is focused on fast, fun, sprint racing. Rowers will participate in up to six regattas, including Stotesbury Cup, the world’s oldest and largest high school rowing competition. The registration fee for the Spring 2020 season is $1235. We hold 4 water practices a week (a bus leaves WJHS at 2:45pm and returns at 7:00pm) and Saturday mornings (carpools can be arranged). One day a week is reserved for land practices at WJHS. In general, all costs associated with practices and races are included in the registration fees. Please note that there will be additional travel-related costs for regattas that require overnight trips, such as Manny Flicks, Stotesbury Cup, and Nationals
