Welcome to Sarasota Scullers Youth Rowing Program, the oldest organized youth rowing club in Sarasota. Our mission is to transform the lives of middle and high school aged youth in Sarasota and Manatee counties by promoting fitness, health, teamwork and good sportsmanship, as well as high moral and civic standards. In a supportive and nurturing climate, the Sarasota Scullers Rowing family seeks to develop a diverse group of scholar-athletes regardless of athletic experience or fitness level. Throughout the year, our Sarasota rowing program offers competitive rowing for high school students, a developmental middle school rowing program, and summer camp rowing for grades 6-12.
