WCR Update 12 19 2017

Last Friday WCR and WA met to discuss the high school team and spring season. Attending were WA Principal Jim Antonelli, WA Athletic Director Adam Gagne, Ian Moffett (captain), Issam Alaga (captain), Fiona Moffett (parent and Friends of WCR vice-chair), and myself. Unable to attend due to scheduling was Maddox Angerhofer (captain).

There is a lot of enthusiasm for the crew team at WA. We all agreed the number one issue is identifying the coaches, and a search is underway. We also discussed regatta schedule. This won’t be finalized until a head coach is selected but we all agreed that recent spring seasons provide a good example.

The captains have organized an informational meeting for any returning or new athletes (athletes only) interested in spring crew on Wednesday, December 20, at 2:15in the WA Lecture Hall. If you are interested and can’t make the meeting, please contact one of the captains (Ian Moffett, Issam Alaga, or Maddox Angerhofer) so they can get an accurate list (or reply privately to this note if that’s easier). This will help WA plan for the spring.

WA plans to host an information meeting for athletes and parents in late January; stay tuned.

WCR is busy defining the masters programs and working with Westford Recreation on learn-to-row, middle school, and summer programs. We plan to hold a masters meeting/discussio in January.

As always your feedback and suggestions are welcome and thank you for your continued support.
