Hello GHS Crew athletes and parents:
We sincerely hope that you appreciate the efforts of your athletes, coaches and volunteers including the FOGRI Board who made the fall and spring seasons of 2020-21 possible despite all the restrictions. Please thank them when you get a chance!
We hope you all plan to return for what we all hope will be a more normal year for 2021-22. In anticipation of that, we are offering for sale the varsity uniform and/or coxswain shirt (which can also be worn underneath the uni for warmth). The school/athletic department does not purchase uniforms for our team as they provide support in numerous other ways, including regatta registration, coaches’ salaries and transportation to the boathouse and races.
The two piece uniform which was loaned to your novice rower must be returned at the end of this season. Upperclassmen who purchased the two piece uniform are not required to purchase a “uni” though your athletes may want you to ?. If you cannot afford to purchase a uniform, please reach out to your athlete’s coach, support may be available through FOGRI.
I will be ordering the uniforms, coxswain/coldweather shirts and the optional Stevenson jacket in bulk at the end of the season, with plans for distribution at the beginning of the fall season. The process of placing individual orders led to increased total shipping costs which I would like to avoid. Please get your order form (see attached) and payment to me by Monday, June 7th.
Remember that “Boathouse.com” , in general, supplies college rowing teams so they tend to run slightly larger. If your athlete is not sure of sizing after reviewing the sizing chart https://www.boathouse.com/pages/size-chart , please have them talk to a varsity member of the same approximate size (height and body build) to determine best fit.
Attached are images of the uni (front and back), the size chart and images of the Stevenson jacket though please note that the logo will be changed on the front to crossed oars with the G (the tomahawk will be removed). The coldweather shirt (without quarter-zip) (https://www.boathouse.com/products/cold-weather-training-top) will also have the crossed oars and colors will be blue and white.
Do not hesitate to call with questions,
Leah Post, FOGRI board member
