We depend on parents to make AB an amazing experience for our athletes. We hope parents will find volunteering a great way to be involved in their athletes high school experience.


Unlike a sport run by the high school, AB Crew is run by parents.

Parent volunteers organize and manage all critical operations:

  • AB Crew food tent at regattas
  • Fundraising initiatives
  • Registration process
  • Website, PR, marketing
  • Clothing sales

There are so many different ways to help AB Crew, and it's a great to meet other parents and learn more about your rower’s new passion.

Fundraising Events

To support our team we rely on many sources of funding. During each water season we ask the athletes to go into the community and sell items such as raffle tickets. This lets us repair and replace broken equipment, pay for regatta fees and cover other smaller costs of operation.


For more information please visit our Funding and Sponsorship page or contact Tara McCabe for more details.

Financial Aid

Arlington-Belmont Crew (AB Crew) is committed to making rowing accessible to student-athletes from all backgrounds, regardless of financial means.

We aim to accomplish this goal by bridging the gap between what a family can afford and the actual cost of an AB Crew rowing season. We strive to do all that we can to help make this athletic opportunity possible. Aid is awarded without regard to race, color, or national or ethnic origin, and without regard for gender, sexual orientation or creed.

To assist in processing your request, please complete the form below. All applications are considered confidential and will be reviewed only by the Scholarship Committee (i.e., no coaches). These decisions will be based on demonstrated need and any other appropriate considerations. Applicants are expected to
work in good faith with the AB Crew organization to determine the most appropriate level of aid, which may fall anywhere in the range of partial to full assistance.
