FROM THE ALEXANDRIA CREW BOOSTERS:
My name is Pat Marquardt. I'm the ACB Fall Crew organizer and the TCW freshmen girls' coach in the spring. With school year quickly approaching I wanted to introduce myself and give everyone some information on the Fall Crew program. Fall Crew is a fantastic way for novice rowers to improve their water skills. While we advertise the program as novice "learn-to-row" the program is a continuation from the summer. For experienced kids, we pick up where they left off at the end of the summer program. If your child is thinking about spring crew this is a good opportunity to get a head start. Here are the important dates:
Sat Sep 8 - Registration at the boathouse from 8-10am and swim test at 1pm (Old Town Pool on Cameron St.)
Mon Sep 10 - First day of practice
Practices will be Mon, Wed, and Fri from 4:15-6:15. ACPS kids are able to use the school buses to get from school to the boathouse; however, there are no school buses home after practice.
Lastly, please spread the word to any potential new rowers. Fall Crew is for 8th-12th graders and is open to everyone so non-ACPS kids are welcome to sign up! Feel free to email me with any questions.
