2022-23 Sponsorship Opportunities
Support Robinson Crew, a self-funded club of Robinson Secondary School. Crew is a team sport that teaches commitment, dedication, and teamwork. Rowing is one of the top aerobic activities and requires excellent overall physical conditioning.
Robinson Crew is open to boys and girls in grades 9-12. It gives students the opportunity to be part of a team at Robinson, a team that values commitment and rewards effort. In the 2021-2022 season, Robinson Crew had 90+ team members and we expect the 2022-2023 team to be just as strong.
Our team begins winter conditioning at the end of November, but when water season starts at the end of February, practice will be on the Occoquan River six days a week. And every rower will have the opportunity to race in regattas against other high school and club teams.
We need the community’s help to make our wonderful rowing program even better. Rowing is an expensive sport, and each ‘shell’ or boat can cost $40,000 to $60,000, oars are nearly $500 each, and rowing machines cost $1,000 each. Our team is self-funded, meaning that it does not receive any funding from Robinson Secondary School; all costs including coaches’ salaries and boat maintenance come from individuals, fundraisers, and sponsorships.
This year is a big year for investing in Robinson Crew as we need to purchase additional boats for our teams. As such we are seeking community sponsorships to help with that effort.
Our 2022-2023 Sponsorship Goal is $20,000. Your sponsorship will support an amazing team of talented youth while also helping us share your company’s name, logo, and website with our community.
Sponsorships are available at all levels. As a sponsor, your company will be recognized on Robinson Crew’s website, team t-shirts, weekly newsletters, and proudly displayed on a banner that will be posted at our team shed at Robinson Secondary School and at our out-of-town regattas.
Help us reach our goal! See available sponsorship levels listed below. Payment can be made via check to Robinson Crew Boosters Club or via Venmo.
