Shrewsbury High School Crew

A Tradition Since 1937


Tryouts will take place at the DRC on Thursday, August 23Friday, August 24Monday, August 27, and Tuesday, August 28 at 2:30 pm to 5:45 pm (the Boys’ team will be dismissed at 6 pm).  On Tuesday, students should meet after school in the Commons to carpool with upperclassmen to the DRC.  Parent pick-up at the end of each day of tryouts will take place adjacent to the DRC in the large parking lot of the state boat ramp.  Final team rosters will be completed at the end of tryouts on Tuesday, August 28.
Pre-registration for tryouts must be done through the parents’ portal of PowerSchool, under the tab of “Sports and Activities.”  The portal will be reopened from August 7 through August 10.  All athletes’ physical exam forms must be up to date with SHS in order to tryout (no exceptions). Physical exams must have been administered within 13 months of the start of tryouts.
Athletes should be prepared each day with workout attire, good running sneakers, a large water bottle, and sunscreen. Eat well!! The tryouts will be a mix of both land and water workouts and will take place outside, rain or shine.
You must use the following link ( to print out and complete the “Swim Test,” “SHS Alcohol & Substance Abuse Contract,” and “Emergency Contact Form.” These forms must be passed in to the coaching staff on the first day of tryouts.
1. In addition to practices held Monday through Friday, all athletes must commit to each Sunday from September 30 through October 28.
2. Mr. Jay Costa will have a Parent/Athlete meeting on Thursday, August 30 at 6:30 pm in the SHS Auditorium, followed immediately by a Crew-specific meeting at SHS, where details of the season will be given. Students must attend Mr. Costa’s meeting, but if time at home to compete homework will be more beneficial, we are not requiring members of the team to stay for the Crew-specific meeting. Parent attendance, alone, will suffice for the Crew-specific meeting.
