Langley High School Crew Club offers an introduction to the sport of rowing for individuals in the Langley pyramid in grades 8 and up. The fall session includes 10 classes on Saturdays Sept. 9 through Oct 28, from 11:00 am – 1:30 pm (unless otherwise noted) at the Sandy Run Regional Park. This class introduces the basics of rowing – such as language and handling equipment, to performing rowing drills and rowing all eight.
Rowing offers a total body, low impact workout unequaled by any other sport. Unlike most activities, rowing incorporates the use of your legs, core and upper body. Rowers face backward in the boat and combine the power of leverage and precise timing to propel the boat through the water.
No previous experience is needed. This is a great opportunity to get familiar with the sport and prepare yourself to be a part of the Langley Crew Team.
Attention! Important Information for Bus Chaperones:
If you signed up to be a bus chaperone, thank you, you are well on your way to meeting your Crew volunteer requirements! As you may know, bus chaperones are now required to be certified by FCPS. The good news is this is a one-time process and your certification will be valid for future years with FCPS. Please contact Marielena Lamont if you have any questions.
Instructions for FCPS Certification Badging Process:
Note – If you can’t make the two dates or the dates have passed you’ll need to go to 8115 Gatehouse Rd Falls Church VA (Admin offices in Merrifield) to complete processing. Please contact Nancy Ayoub in advance so she can notify FCPS to expect you.
