2021-2022 Crew Season

The Yorktown Crew Boosters board typically meets on the first Wednesday of every month. All boosters are welcome to attend. All meetings will be held at 7:30pm at YHS, with room location and agenda to be sent out prior to the meeting date.

Coaching Staff

We are excited to have Gabe Colmenarez Fuentes accept the Head Coach position, and he will continue to coach the YHS Men’s team. YHS Activities Director Mike Krulfeld is actively searching for the Women’s team coach and other assistant coaches. Please contact Mike with any candidates or suggestions, Michael.krulfeld@apsva.us

Recruitment

Rowers, the most important thing you can do now to help the team is recruit a new rower. Most of our athletes tried rowing out because someone asked them to, a classmate or an upperclassman. So spread the word that rowing is happening this year!!

Physicals

All rowers need updated physicals before participating in any crew activities, including Winter Conditioning (which will start in mid-November). You can find the required form here:  https://yorktownsports.org/main/filesLinks/

Return Team Ergs!

We are still trying to gather up the ergs that were borrowed at the beginning of the summer. So please, if you borrowed a team erg, contact our equipment manager, Gary Vogel (gary.vogel@ey.com) to plan a date to drop it off at YHS. We can even make arrangements to come get it if you cannot drop it off. We need to get these ergs back, software updated and general maintenance performed. We cannot lend the ergs out this Fall until we get them returned and updated. If you know of somebody who has an erg (maybe somebody you shared with back in the spring or summer), please send them this email and cc Gary so we can get in contact to get the erg.
