Middle School Spring 2020 Rowing (DCPS 8th GRADE ONLY)

Wilson Crew is running a Spring Rowing Program for DCPS 8th grade students interested in learning what it’s like to row for Wilson Crew. 

The Spring 2020 Middle School Rowing Program is open to DCPS Middle School 8th Graders ONLY and will run from Tuesday 03/03/20 to Sunday 06/15/20. 

The program will be a combination of building technique, learning new skills, continuing to get fitter and stronger, and moving on to more advanced rowing and getting ready to race. Participants should bring their gym shoes, water bottle, and a sense of adventure!  

Weekend practices are slated to run from 10:00 am--12:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, but the schedule is subject to change based on final registration numbers. Note: There will be NO Sessions from 03/17 to 04/01 due to DCPS Spring Break and closure due to the COVID-19 virus. 

Rowers must complete registration and payment and submit all required forms/waivers in order to participate.

Please Note: There is a mandatory swim test for all participants who have not passed a swim test for the Wilson Crew Fall 2019 and/or Winter 2019-2020 Middle School programs.  Swim Test date TBD.

Start Date:  March 3, 2020

End Date:  June 15, 2020

Exception:  No Practice 03-17 to 04/01, due to Spring Break and DCPS Closure.
