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. No rowing experience is necessary, but once learned, rowing will transform your life.
Want to learn to row? We invite new high school rowers to visit a practice session Monday, Wednesday, Friday 3:45-6:15 or Saturdays 7:45-10AM. Middle School Rowers stop by Monday, Wednesday, Friday 4:30-6:15 or Saturdays 10AM-12PM. Prospective rowers will meet with our coaches and ride along in a launch to see what practice is like. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
