Regatta Food

Why is the  Food Committee important?

Food Committee provides meals for the TC Crew team regattas. Because the rowers are at the race venue all morning and into the afternoon, it is important that they have healthy and sustaining food to get them through the day.  At each regatta we feed an average of 72 girls and 56 boys, plus coaches.  To do this, we need 55 to 65 volunteers from prep through race day. 

How can I volunteer and support my rower and the team?

Below are the links to the SignUp Geniuses for the regattas. Sign up early!

Please check back soon for the Spring Sign up geniuses!

The opportunities to help are many, including:

  • Weekly Food Shopping - Shop on Friday and deliver food to Prep Party.
  • Weekly Prep Party – Parents help to prep food for regatta
  • Many on-site jobs – transport, set-up, monitoring tent throughout day, clean-up
  • 2-3 hour shifts at the race course

Watching your son/daughter row is the PRIORITY – That’s why we’re all here.  Other parents are more than happy to step in and cover while you step away to watch your child row.

We cannot successfully provide meals to the team without your support.  Our ‘motto’ is ‘many hands make light work’.  All the RACING days are different and we need parents from Novice to Varsity to be a part of the day!  You’ll be at the race anyway, so think about helping feed the rowers!

For those unsure if your child is racing, expect the coaches to notify rowers by Wednesday or Thursday the week of the race.
