Welcome to Westfield High School Crew

Westfield Crew is a co-ed club team out of Westfield High School in Chantilly, Virginia.  It is a self-funded Varsity sport.  Our dedicated team of rowers consists of eighty-one hundred male and female athletes from Freshman through Seniors.  We've had many of our rowers receive scholarships to row at the University level.

The crew season begins in January with the optional winter conditioning held at the Cub Run Rec Center.  In March, team practice begins at the in earnest at the Bull Run Marina on the Occoquan Reservoir.

The team competes in VASRA Regattas from March through May mostly at Sandy Run Marina (also on the Occoquan), and in other locations including the Potomac.

Westfield Crew is a competitive, inclusive, high school rowing program accessible to all students.   Participating promotes self confidence, academic excellence, team building, healthy living, and physical stamina in our student athletes.  If you are interested in Westfield Crew, we are interested in you!

The Realities of Rowing in Fairfax County Schools

Rowing is a great sport that welcomes all students who are willing to work hard.  Many rowers never touch an oar until they get to college and we are very fortunate to have a program at Westfield High School.

Although we have received support from the Westfield Athletic Boosters Club (WABC), we receive absolutely no funding from the state, county or school because we are sanctioned as a club sport, not a Virginia High School League (VHSL) sport.  We must raise every cent we spend for boats, oars, coaches, marina fees (including boat storage), entry fees, organizational dues, snacks, and more.  We keep our fees as low as we can, but we can only do that by extensive fund raising.   It is only with the support of past, present and future rowers and their families that we are able to sustain such a promising program.  

We hope that your child learns to love rowing as our children have.  It is a sport that requires true teamwork and builds lifelong friendships. It can open doors for your child and for you - welcome to Westfield Crew.
