About South County Crew
The 2016 – 17 school year is South County Crew’s twelfth season. The team has quickly grown to be one of the top programs in the Washington, D.C. area. In the 2014 – 15 season, the team qualified two boats for thetwo national championships hosted by the National Scholastic Rowing Association and the Scholastic Rowing Association of America, and SoCo boats raced into the Finals in both of these prestigious events. South County Crew boats also medaled at the 2014Virginia State Championships Regatta. In addition, the Washington Post named three rowers as Honorable Mention All-Met: Parker Dumas, Jay Tahiliani, and Tressa Vitus-Dega.
South County Crew alumni now compete at the college level. With such a dedicated group of hardworking and enthusiastic athletes, SC Crew will continue to grow and succeed. We look forward to another record-breaking season during the 2016 – 17 season!
South County Crew is a co-ed team where all rowers work together to help the entire team grow. This, along with the friendships created, the fun experienced at every Crew event and practice, and the competitive spirit exhibited by our athletes has led to our successes.
The Stallions are committed to the continued development and attainment of excellence of rowers as students and as athletes. Our goals are to instill the value of hard work, time management, and self-discipline to help our students achieve success in both academics and athletics. We strive to give every athlete as many opportunities to participate in regattas as possible and hope our boats enjoy success along the way. This year we hope to again send many of our athletes to the Stotesbury Cup Regatta in Philadelphia and the SRAA Nationals competition.
South County Crew is especially grateful for our dedicated coaches and our Crew Booster members and parents, all of whom show commitment to these student rowers by their continued involvement in the management and support of this team. Without their gifts of time, sweat, and fundraising, South County Crew would not exist.
Crew is a club sport in Fairfax County and, as such, is not supported by Fairfax County Public School funds. Financial support for the program must come from parents, student-athletes and fundraising activities.
Our crew program is sponsored and supported by the non-profit South CountyCrew Boosters Club which manages the rowing program by:
1. Hiring the Coaches
2. Procuring and maintaining SCHS Crew Team equipment
3. Raising funds through individual assessments and Fundraising Activities
4. Coordinating in and off season activities
The South County Booster Club’s Board of Directors is elected annually.
The contributions of both the student-athletes and their families financially and through participation in work activities are the cornerstone of the program’s success.
