About South County Crew

sccrewlogoThe 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.

 


Financial Support

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.
