Welcome to Saint Andrew Rowing Club A non-profit organization dedicated to promoting youth rowing in the Metro Atlanta area.

Successful cleanup this past weekend

Thanks to all those who came this weekend and helped clean up.  We removed some trash and a whole lot of leaves, got the boathouse and erg shack all set for Winter training, and were rewarded by the Tent City team, who grilled up the last of the Fall season food.

 

We're seeing lots of changes around the Church and parking lot as well.  Please continue to be considerate as different areas of the parking lot may be blocked off for landscaping and building improvements.

All practices end at 6:30PM effective Monday, 11/3

Seeking new rowers for Winter Training

New this season! We have opened up training to anyone interested. That's Nov 10 - Dec 18 and Jan 5-9 for only $150 for current SA family members, $250 for new SA athletes. If you know of any returning rowers from previous years or have any friends interested in staying in shape between sports and trying out the sport of rowing, invite them to join us for winter conditioning.  You know how well your coaches can train you on and off the water. Share the wealth, share the joy!

 

Spring Registration and Recruiting

We are waiting for several regatta dates on Regatta Central and can put Spring Registration up as soon as that happens- we hope no later than the middle of this month. In the meantime, remember to mark your calendars and encourage your friends and neighbors to come to our Open House/Spring Registration on 1/10/15 from 10-1 at the boat house. Weather permitting, we will take prospective athletes (with parents present and signed liability forms in a boat for a spin to get them hooked on the sport! Look for a flyer to start passing out/emailing in the next couple of weeks.

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....
