Welcome to Saint Andrew Rowing Club

Established in 1988, by the Georgia Tech rowing program, S/A is a program dedicated to instructing and training the best youth rowers in the metro Atlanta area. S/A rowers excel as athletes and individuals and have successfully competed at major regional and national USRowing championships, which has enabled a number of its rowers to earn scholarships and positions on the premiere collegiate rowing teams in the United States. S/A also provides athletes new to the sport with opportunities to join its novice rowing and introductory/competitive sculling squads and to participate in summer learn to row camps.

Learn To Row Summer Camp (Morning or Afternoon)

Our Learn To Row (LTR) summer program is an introductory, non-competitive program where kids ages 12-18 can try the sport in a fun and safe environment.  They will learn rowing  terminology, how to handle the equipment and learn a basic set of skills, which a rower can choose to continue to develop in our Rowing or Sculling programs (visit Programs tab for more info).  LTR meets 5 times per week and athletes of all different athletic backgrounds are encouraged to participate.

 

We highly recommend that the participant sign up for multiple sessions-not only to see what crew is all about, but also to develop and reinforce the skills learned.  This is especially helpful for those who may wish to join one of our squads in the Fall!

 

Skill levels are as follows:

  • Novice:  Has never rowed before.
  • Intermediate:  Rowed in Novice camp and wish additional instruction.
  • Advanced:  Rowed in past camps and/or in an intemediate level camp.

 

Cost:  $145 per week attended

All Day Rowing Camp

We invite students to come join us for an all-day, all-week camp where not only will they learn rowing skills in the same fun and safe environment as the Learn To Row program, but also have fun activities around the boat house and along the river all day long.    Rowing in the morning and afternoon, with lunch and other activities (Sprayground, crafts, hikes) sandwiched in-between.  Because it's an all-day camp, bring your lunch-we'll provide the rest!

 

This camp is intended for the younger middle school participant who may wish to try this camp before moving on to our Learn To Row sessions or even have another weekly camp!  It may also help cement a child's decision to join our Sculllng squad in the Fall!

 

Cost:  $310 for one week, $245 for each additional week

What is Rowing All About Anyway?

Why is rowing such an exclusive sport?  Because not just anyone can rise to the level of performance required to be a competition rower!  Thanks to an SARC alum (now rowing for lightweight men's at Princeton) who is creative with videography, the video below is presented to you....
