Expectations for Parents

The YHS crew team’s recent success has been built on great coaching and dedicated athletes, but the active support of parents has also been a key ingredient. We are quite open about the need for all three legs of the team to work together—crew is different from most high school sports, you can’t simply pick your kid up from practice and come to the games. The boosters do literally hundreds of tasks, both large and small and often behind the scenes, that enable the coaches and athletes to focus on one thing—rowing as fast as they possibly can.

We encourage you to take a look at the various tabs in the parents’ section; they will give you a great deal of insight into how the team works and the degree of parental involvement required for it to be successful.

If you have any questions, feel free to email one of the board members.
