Dues are our major source of funding. Fairfax County and McLean High School provide no financial support to our team since we are a club sport. Accordingly, families of team members are financially responsible for all expenses associated with preparing for and competing in the spring regatta season. We are able to reduce team dues by about $400 per rower through our group fundraising efforts which include car washes, restaurant nights, our corporate giving program with Integrity Tire and gift card sales. We also receive a small amount of revenue which reduces dues by about $70 per rower from renting our shells and launches to other local rowing programs.
