OAKTON CREW REGISTRATION
Welcome to a new season of Oakton Crew!
Follow these steps to register for Winter Conditioning & Spring Crew — Please note that if you participated in fall rowing, you must now register in full for the team. Forms which were previously submitted for fall rowing do not need to be submitted again, but please complete an updated team online registration form so we can track membership, and submit additional required forms as listed below.
1. Complete the online registration form. The term "Rower" includes all teammates, including rowers and coxswains. PLEASE INCLUDE AN EMAIL ADDRESS THAT YOU ROUTINELY CHECK, as we will add these to our communications platforms for regular messages, team updates, schedules, and deadlines.
2. Use the Membership Forms Checklist to ensure completion of all forms; forms are listed below with links.
3. Pay the membership dues. Visit the STORE to pay by credit card or send a check with your forms.
4. If you have not already done so, sign up for The Catch, our newsletter for information & updates.
5. NEW THIS YEAR: If you will be staying after school from 3 - 4 during Winter Conditioning, you must participate in Crew Study Hall in the cafeteria - students are no longer allowed to be in the hallways without a coach or parent, due to construction. Parents must sign up for at least one chaperoning shift between November and February if your student plans to stay in the building for the interim hour. (The chaperone shift is not considered Crew service).
6. Have questions? We're happy to help. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

NEW to WINTER CONDITIONING this year:
Due to construction at OHS, students are no longer allowed to be in the building without a teacher, coach, or parent present. Oakton Crew will be holding a Study Hall in the cafeteria from the end of school until the start time of Winter Conditioning practices (from 3 - 4 p.m), and if your child will be staying after school for practice, we ask you to sign up for one spot for chaperoning Study Hall. If you are available for several days, please fill as many spots as you can. You will need to be at Oakton from 3 to 4 for your shift, and you may leave when the first coach arrives. SIGN UP HERE.
By registering for Oakton Crew, parents and teammates agree that photos and videos of their likeness may be used by the Club to promote the successes of the team and for promotion and recruitment, and agree that from time to time athletes maybe identified by name. You may opt out of this agreement by submitting a written Photo Opt-Out Form.
