Welcome Back McLean Crew Club Rowers and Parents!!!

We hope you had wonderful summers and that your start to the 2017-2018 school year has been smooth. Your coaches and board have been hard at work preparing for the upcoming season.

New Website

Have you checked out our new, slick, photo-filled, information-stocked website? We are constantly updating and enhancing the information. Please bookmark this as your #1 place-to-go for all things McLean Crew.

Too many emails? Instead of having to dig back in your emails to find that one email talking about that thing…check out the Blog. Key emails will be posted for a time-saving tool.

Thank you Martin Hilliard (Webmaster Extraordinaire) for all your efforts to keep our community informed and connected!

Car Washes

Let’s get a jump on our team fundraising – we have 2 car washes scheduled:

  • Saturday Sept 23rd at the Old Firehouse and,

  • Saturday October 14th at the BP.

See all the details and SIGN-UP to help. All Rowers should sign up for a shift at both car washes and Parents you can get a start on your Additional Volunteer Credits.
