TeamSnap is the tool our booster club (Friends of Harriton Crew) use to communicate team information to our rowers and their families. Remind is an app that our coaching staff uses to communicate with the rowers directly.
The coaches are responsible for athlete development, the line up and regatta selection.
All questions with regard to coaching or individual students should be addressed to the head coach.

Practice & Regattas
We often get questions about early practices and regattas. But it really isn't too bad. Most practices take place after school. During the Spring season the schoolbus will take you there.
Yes, occasionally we practice on Saturday morning. And yes, we do start at 6am, but first up are the juniors and seniors. Freshmen and sophmores get a little slack and start around 7am and 8am.
Regattas are usually on a Sunday, but on the weekends that a regatta takes place on a Saturday we do not have early morning practice.
