Welcome to Sarasota Scullers Youth Rowing Program, the oldest organized youth rowing club in Sarasota. Since 1991, the Sarasota Scullers have led the way in competitive team rowing and developing teens' athletic and competitive skills, including achieving a #1 ranking in Florida at the 2010 State Championships. But even more important is the sense of personal achievement the coaching staff fosters by helping members learn valuable life skills of teamwork and individual goal setting. 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 family seeks to develop a diverse group of scholar-athletes regardless of athletic experience or fitness level. Throughout the year, we offer competitive rowing for high school students, a developmental middle school rowing program, and summer camp rowing for grades 6-12. No rowing experience is necessary, but once learned, rowing will transform your life.
Exciting summer rowing camps for youth grades 6-12. Learn this growing sport from the original Sarasota rowing team. Camps are available for all levels, from novice to intermediate rowers, in half-day and full-day programs. Learn more about what we offer here or call 966-2244.
