DONORS PAGE

Oakton Crew receives no funding from Oakton High School or from Fairfax County Public Schools. The team pays for its own equipment, insurance, rental and regatta fees, even for our own wonderful coaching staff, and we couldn’t do it without the support of our dedicated athletes and their families and friends, as well as support from our local business community.

Our men's and women's teams row in varsity, freshman, and novice eights and fours (designating how many oars and rowers are in a boat).  Over the years, Oakton boats have won numerous medals at Virginia state competitions, and last year we won our first National Championship, in the Women’s JR Four event. Each year Crew grows stronger as a sports presence at OHS. 

Rowing is a fun yet physically demanding sport, and our students develop commitment to team, great physical fitness, improved time-management and academic skills, and make lifelong friends through their participation in Crew.

The Oakton Cougar Crew Booster Club (OCCBC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your donations are fully tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. Donors will receive a tax receipt by email with your donation, and a thank-you letter and written receipt in early May.

Any amount you give directly supports the team, and every donation is appreciated!

A NEW BOAT CAN LAST A DECADE OR MORE

Your $400 gift helps our club afford new (or new to us) shells to keep us competitive! New 8-rower boats cost around $45,000, so we take excellent care of our fleet to ensure our boats last and last.

WE’RE NOTHING WITHOUT OUR OARS

A $300 gift helps purchase one new sweep oar — and we use 4 or 8 in each boat. New oars help the rowers maximize their efforts with each stroke, and a good set can last for many years.

OUR BOATS ARE FAAAAST…….

…. help the coaches keep up with a gift of engine support. A $250 gift supports repairs of existing launch motors, and purchases of new ones as our team gets faster and faster.

COXSWAIN SUPPORT

Coxswains keep the boat moving together & provide rowers with crucial information to make every stroke count. A gift of $200 helps purchase equipment to make their voices heard!

Seats Clear.jpg

ONE SEAT, TWO PAIR OF SHOES

Each boat contains a sliding seat and a pair of shoes bolted to a foot plate for each rower — a gift of $150 allows the team to buy either one new seat or two new pairs shoes.

KEEP OUR BOATS OFF THE GROUND

Getting ready for races requires a pair of slings for every boat — $100 buys a sling to literally support our shells.

OAR GRIPS & COLLARS & CLAMS (oh my!)

A gift of $75 buys 8 new rubber grips for oar handles, or collars and clams for oarlocks (shown in lime green) — we can make old oars feel new again with new grips and collars.

KEEP OUR OARS IN PLACE

A $50 gift pays for a new backstay — which is the metal pole that holds the oar at the proper distance from the boat.

KEEP OUR THINGS CLEAN & FABULOSO

We even have to pay for the gas for launches! $10 covers launch gogo juice for two or three practices.
