Athlete Safety Policy

Washington-Lee High School Crew is fully committed to the safety of all athletes, and participants, by complying with the USRowing and USOC SafeSport policies below. Specifically, the following misconduct will not be tolerated:

  • Bullying
  • Hazing
  • Harassment (including sexual harassment)
  • Emotional Misconduct
  • Physical Misconduct
  • Sexual Misconduct (including child sexual abuse)

On these six points, we have a zero tolerance policy for the coaches, athletes, crew booster officers, parent boosters, and alumni of our team. We expect everyone to conduct themselves in the highest of standards, being supportive, positive, and inclusive towards all those involved within, and outside of Washington-Lee High School Crew.

We promote this supportive and positive environment through example and education as appropriate. Discrimination based on race, sex, religious affiliation, sexual preference, federally protected class, or disability is not tolerated. All members of our program will be treated with equal respect, free from harassment or pressure, either intended or implied. Washington-Lee High School Crew offers a safe environment for all.
