Become A Booster

Capital Crew Boosters Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of parent volunteers who support the Capital Crew program. This support is both financial and in-person. Boosters dues should not be considered an optional donation; instead, they are one part of the price of participating in a competitive rowing program.

Booster dues and other funds raised help Capital Crew Boosters Club purchase and/or provide:

  • New equipment- boats, rigging, oars, cox boxes, etc.
  • Reductions in costs for the travel teams (hotels, airfare, food, vans)
  • Social events, including the awards banquet
  • Food for the athletes (breakfast and lunch at regattas; meals at away events)
  • Scholarships
  • Website and organizational expenses

Booster Board members, Coordinators and Volunteers work to provide:

  • Food for the athletes (breakfast and lunch at regattas; meals at away events)
  • Communication via our website and emails
  • Logo merchandise
  • Social events
  • Hospitality tent for parents at home events

All Capital Crew athletes benefit from the Boosters club. All the boats, riggings and oars used have been purchased by the Boosters Club over the years. Meals are provided at races, both at home and away events, and travel expenses are reduced. In 2016, the Boosters replaced all the “shoes” in the boats and purchased five new Varsity and Novice cox boxes for each squad. If your child is an athlete with Capital Crew, they are directly benefiting on a daily basis from the Boosters Club. If you are not yet a Boosters member, join now using the Booster Membership Form.
