Dear valued member of the Robinson community:
We are asking for your help in supporting Robinson Crew, a self-funded club of Robinson Secondary School. Crew is a team sport that teaches commitment, dedication, and teamwork.
In the 2022-2023 season, Robinson Crew had 90+ team members and we expect the 2023-2024 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.
This year is a big year for investing in Robinson Crew as we aim to purchase a new 4-person boat (shell), eight new rowing machines (ergs), and a new set of oars for our teams.
We are seeking your support to help fund new equipment.
Rowing is an expensive sport: 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. Our sponsorship goal for the 2023-2024 season is $12,500.
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.
Can you help us reach our goal?
Please click here to become a sponsor. Payment can be made via check to Robinson Crew Boosters Club or via Venmo. We are also available at (703) 624-8706 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions you may have.
Thank you for your support!
