What is VASRA?
VASRA is the Virginia Scholastic Rowing Association. VASRA runs all the regattas at Sandy Run as well as providing a community forum for high school rowing programs in our state.
As a member school within VASRA, we contribute time and volunteer efforts to VASRA every season and in return we gain from all the hard work that they do - setting up and refereeing races, maintaining the course, and so on.
What do you need to know about them?
As an Oakton Crew parent, you will be expected to volunteer for at least one "VASRA job" each season. This might be helping to run a concession stand at a regatta, or maintain a dock, or any one of the dozens of opportunities that VASRA makes available.
- To see what slots are available and to sign up, see the VASRA entry on our signups page.
- To learn more about the jobs that VASRA has, see the job descriptions in their operations manual.
- To find out more about VASRA itself, visit their website.
VASRA runs a very useful Twitter handle, @vasraresults, that you can follow during a regatta to get live updates on race results. They also operate @vasraparking, which can be incredibly helpful on stressful regatta mornings.
