Welcome to Saint Andrew Rowing Club

A non-profit organization dedicated to promoting youth rowing in the Metro Atlanta area.

Due to the weather conditions we are experiencing today (and those forecasted for the rest of the week) we have decided to postpone the start of Introduction to Sculling practices and the Parent meeting until next Tuesday 3/3/15. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Coach Parker at parkerlemming17@hotmail.com.

Bonfire / Potluck Postponed, Stay tuned for Erg Sprints updates!

The bonfire and potluck that was planned for Saturday night has been postponed due to the expected cold and rain.  We hope to reschedule for later in the season.

 

The GA Tech Erg Sprints are scheduled to take place Saturday morning.  (Current schedule is here).  If anything changes, the website will be updated and you will be notified via Rained Out.

Important! Update to Regatta Transportation Policy

Any rower who will not be riding on the team bus, either to or from any Regatta where buses are provided, must turn in a completed "Travel Exception Form".  The form is available on the member page.

 

The form must be given to their coach at least one week prior to the Regatta.

For the Sarasota Invitational, forms are due by 2/20.

Practices end at 7:00 PM starting Monday 2/9

PRACTICE REMINDERS:  Remember that as of Monday Feb 1st, both Varsity Squads go to six days per week (VM to add Wed/VW to add Mon) and optional days for  Novice squads will be considered mandatory (Thurs for NM and Fri for NW).

 

Due to cold temperatures this time of year, please make sure to remind your athlete to dress in warm layers, including hats and jackets (or at least shirts for Varsity men!?).  Layers may come off during a workout but are essential to have when athletes are not in motion and body temps will cool down rapidly.  Also, please remind your athlete that even though they might not feel thirsty in cold weather, it is still essential to their health and fitness to drink plenty of water before, during and after their workouts- this can be easy to forget in the cold season.

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....
