If you're considering Crew, a swim test is required before going on the water for any activities (i.e., Learn-2-Row (L2R) 'Green-days', On-The-Water (OTW) Spring season practice, etc.). 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.
