7 Steps to Success

Here is a consolidated document with 7 steps to get up and running for this Crew Season. Click the picture for details.

WINTER Conditioning is in session! 

Practice began on Saturday, November 19th and will continue until 18 February. 

It's never too late to join in the fun and everyone is welcome (with or without crew experience). Practice is held Weekdays (4 - 6:30 p.m.) Saturdays (8 - 11 a.m.) at JMHS. Meet us at the Crew Shed! 

The 2022-23 Crew Year

Warhawk Crew provides opportunities for students with a wide range of athletic abilities to become highly trained, competitive, and successful student-athletes. This year's season activities include the following:

  • On-the-water orientation (Learn to Row) in the Fall for new rowers
  • Optional Winter Conditioning November - 19 February
  • Official Spring Season begins on 20 February!
  • VASRA Regattas at Sandy Run Regional Park every Saturday (18 March - 13 May 2023)
  • Away Regattas (invitational or championship):
  • Other Team Building Events:
    • White Elephant Gift Exchange (9 Dec)
    • Team Dinners (typically the Friday before each Regatta)
    • End of Year Banquet (May)

2/4: upcoming Away regatta - 2023 erg sprints! 

Want to see how you stack up against other athletes as we get ready to end winter training and head to the water? The ERG Sprints, hosted by Alexandria City HS Rowing, is the preeminent indoor ERG competition on the East Coast. Junior, High School, and Collegiate teams make this event a pre-Spring season priority.

Rowers, sign up for the Youth 2000M. Be sure to indicate James Madison Crew Boosters on your registration form. There is a separate coxswain race and Madison coxswains will be on hand to motivate our competing rowers. You do need a free RegattaCentral account to register.

Why should I go?
If you are pursuing (or considering) recruiting for Rowing, this is a must-attend. College teams send scouts to this event.
If you enjoy competing with athletes from around the nation or want a sneak peek at our strong local competition, this is a must-attend. You will sweat, you will be exhausted, you will (likely) puke. It’s a fantastic day of indoor rowing!

More details and information for carpooling coming in early January once we know who is attending. Questions may be directed to Valerie Jopeck, Away Regattas Coordinator via Slack.

Sponsorship Slots Available!

The team is 100% financed and managed through the James Madison Crew Boosters Organization, Inc. (“JMCBO”), a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Madison Crew has experienced many successes in its 16-year history of hard work and focused training, while maintaining academic excellence. The men's and women's teams regularly compete on regional and national levels – and have won a Scholastic Rowing Association of America national championship. Due to the lack of funding from Fairfax County Public School, we rely on corporations such as yours to be able to run a smooth operation and help our students win that championship. We appreciate and value your contribution.

Please consider sponsoring Warhawk Crew.  If you have any questions or are interested in helping out the team in a different way, please contact
