The Oakton High School Crew Club was founded in 2002, and participated in its first season of rowing in spring of 2004. The team has grown from 42 members to around 80 in our most recent seasons.

Cougar Crew!

We participate in practices and regattas at the Sandy Run marina near Occoquan, VA, and are a member school under the Virginia Scholastic Rowing Association (VASRA – formerly NCASRA). We have also raced on the Potomac River; in the Stotesbury Cup Regatta on the Schuylkill river near Philadelphia; and in the high school Nationals regatta staged by the Scholastic Rowing Association of America (SRAA).
