“Rowing is perhaps the toughest of sports. Once the race starts, there are no time-outs, no substitutions. It calls upon the limits of human endurance. The coach must therefore impart the secrets of the special kind of endurance that comes from mind, heart and body.” -- George Pocock
WELCOME 2022 - 2023 SEASON
Crew is the ultimate team sport and requires rowers exhibit not only great strength and stamina, but also the ability to work together to make a shell of many parts move as one. Rowers are a unique bunch, recognized from the high school to college level as some of the hardest working and motivated student-athletes. Rowing is one of the fastest growing collegiate sports in the United States. Crew builds not only bigger, stronger athletes, but nurtures the human spirit.
The Fairfax High School Crew team succeeds both in the water as well in the classroom. FHS has sent multiple boats to Nationals in each of the last several years, with 24 athletes participating in the National regatta in 2016. In addition, each year more FHS boats are invited to participate in regional and national regattas in DC and on the Schuylkill in Philadelphia. In the classroom, crew boasts the highest combined GPA of any spring sport.
