Winter season overview & registration
WW Crew encourages all our athletes to participate in a winter sport at your school! Participating in your school’s winter sport will prepare you for the spring season.
In addition, here are some more advantages:
–contribute to your school: winter season is your chance to be part of another school team and to be a three-season athlete.
–develop strength and endurance by cross-training, and avoid overuse injuries: it is good to move your body in different ways, and sometimes you can more quickly develop strength that is good for crew by doing other exercises. Swimming and cross-country skiing are exceptional sports for developing endurance that crosses over to crew.
–create balance in your life: all crew, all the time may not be healthy or productive for everyone. Consider whether the variety of a different sport and taking a break from crew may be good for you.
If you are not going to participate in a winter sport, stay fit, and keep in touch with the WWRA community.
Spring season overview & registration
The program will offer rowing this spring. We are still developing the format and specifics of the program.
Here is information from prior years:
A competitive high school rowing program for students in grades 9 – 12 attending Wayland and Weston public high schools. Wayland-Weston Crew is a varsity sport at both high schools and is offered in the fall and spring seasons only to students enrolled in Wayland or Weston High School.
Spring is for sprinting, with the distance at 1.5k and 2k. Typically, WW Crew starts racing in April and continues through the US Rowing Northeast Championships and the Mass Public School Rowing Association Championships.
All athletes must also register through Family ID with the athletics department for Wayland High School or Weston High School and must have current physicals on file with the school.
Wayland-Weston Crew is a varsity sport at both high schools and is offered in the fall and spring seasons only to students enrolled in Wayland or Weston High School.
In a typical year, WW Crew starts pre-season training in August about 10 days before the beginning of school. Training continues through September, with the Ergathon as a highlight. All of October is dedicated to racing in head races that are 5k endurance events. Usually, two or three WW Crew boats compete in the Head of the Charles Regatta. The season wraps up with the NH Championships and the Fall Massachusetts Public School Rowing Association (MPSRA) Championships.
All regular practices take place on Lake Cochituate, launching from the WW Crew Boathouse, at the Wayland Town Beach, 25 Parkland Drive, Wayland MA 01778
