The actual test should only take about 5-10 minutes and includes laps and then a small-time treading water. Schedule a swim test by emailing

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 20-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
