T.C. crew offers summer courses


Fresh off another award-winning season, the T.C. Williams crew program is offering a variety of five-week summer courses for novice and veteran rowers alike.

Soon-to-be eighth graders through high school seniors can get the basics down at the Alexandria Crew Boosters youth novice sweep, a learn-to-row program from 7:15 to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday. Rising ninth graders can participate in the youth intermediate sweep, designed to improve skills and techniques, weekdays from 7 to 8:45 a.m.
High school varsity rowers have the option of taking youth sculling, where participants must work two oars, rather than one, weekdays from 6:45 to 7:45 a.m.

Adults interested in the sport can choose from two basic classes, either Monday, Wednesday and Fridays lessons or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays program. The classes begin June 25.
