Welcome to Saint Andrew Rowing Club

Established in 1988, by the Georgia Tech rowing program, SA is a program dedicated to instructing and training the best youth rowers in the metro Atlanta area. SA 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. SA 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.

SA Rowers Commit to Row at Louisville

Congratulations to Riley Kerber and Gillian Burns who recently committed to row next year at the University of Louisville!

SA at Head of the Hooch

The combination of rain, chilly temperatures, choppy water and mud couldn't stop our SA rowers from posting a number of very strong performances against some of the best youth teams in the country. Also, thank you again to the SA parents and the friends of SA for volunteering at both Tent City and the Head of the Hooch itself.

SA Ergathon Logs Over 360,000 Meters!

The first annual SA Ergathon at the Sandy Springs Kroger was a tremendous success! After finishing their morning practice, the SA rowers and coxswains hit the ergs for some fierce but friendly competition. Thank you again to Kroger for hosting the event and donating food and drinks, to the Tent City crew and cheering parents and most importantly to those SA families, friends and alums that made financial donations to the club!

Head of the Charles Regatta

The SA varsity men's 4+ traveled to Boston to compete in the 51st Head of the Charles Regatta. Great fall racing conditions and a solid performance (36th out of 85 boats) enabled the crew to qualify for next year's regatta.

Chattanooga Head Race

Despite cold and wet conditions, and then some sun, 32 St. Andrew's boats took to the water looking to build on the success from its first regatta. Highlights from the weekend include great performances by the novice men's 4+, men's and women's pair, women's novice 4+, men's and women's 4x, as well as our Intro program for competing in their first regatta.

Congratulations to Stevie Bones        Row2K 2015 Boathouse Dog

Coach Liz Barnett's dog, Stevie Bones, won the Row2K Photo Poll as the favorite boathouse dog for 2015.  Stevie likes to spend time with the youth at St Andrew Rowing Club as well as the adults at Atlanta Rowing Club.  After hearing he was selected as a finalist, the SA family rallied behind him and helped make sure he was the winner of the poll.


Check out Stevie and the rest of the competition here:

"Tail of the Tiger" Regatta Wrap Up

SA had a great showing at the Tail of the Tiger regatta hosted by Clemson University on September 26, 2015. All squads ended up capturing medals in at least one event and gained some great early season racing experience. Thanks to the Tent City Crew and all of the parents that came out to support our rowers!


Next stop, Chattanooga, Tennessee for the "Chattanooga Head Race" on Saturday, October 10, 2015.

SA at the East Cobber Festival

SA sponsored a successful booth at the East Cobber Festival on Saturday, September 12.   The festival followed the annual East Cobb Parade, which is the largest parade in East Cobb.  An estimated 10,000 people attended. 


This festival enabled us to put SA in the spotlight and let people know what a great Club we have!  Interest in SA was high, and we received a number of hard leads.  Several are already planning to join our Club. 


This is the first of many events we will participate in to gain visibility for SA, and recruit new rowers.  We need all the help we can get to grow our club.  Please think about what you could do to help in this effort.  Some particular needs we have are:

  • Volunteers who have a truck or van to pack up the erg, tent, tables, etc. from SA and bring to recruiting events; help with set-up and tear down. This is typically on a Saturday. 
  • Volunteers to sponsor a SA booth or table at each of our schools.  We have a display, flyers, etc. for you to use. 

If you can help, please contact Donna Strong

SA Summer Daytona Regatta Results

SA HEADLINER From Daytona: 


The SA Summer Daytona Regatta is one for the record books: out of 31 total team events the SA combined men's & women's summer intensive camp group (17 total) medaled in 24 different events (10 gold, 7 silver, 7 bronze); with each participant taking home anywhere from 2 to 6 medals. This performance was an incredible display of our athlete's focused training, dedication and passion to compete over the 4 week development camp. The SA squad finished tied second in overall team points! We just missed the trophy by a handful of points to one of the two teams with much bigger squads. They say the proof is in the picture - congratulations to all the athletes for delivering an awesome showing.

Go SA!

USRowing Club Nationals Update

In the Women's U19 4+, the US Juniors Winter High Performance Camp C 4+ (featuring SA rower Riley Kerber) came in an impressive 6th place in a field of 50 in the time trial.  They rowed again in the semifinal on Saturday.  The top two from each semi advanced to the final.  While their boat had the 5th best time overall, they were third in their semi and so did not advance.  Riley placed 3rd in her semis for the B 8+ and the E 2- as well.

In the Men's U19 1x, SA Rower Dylan Tanasijevich finished a solid 25th in a field of 48, with the top 21 advancing to the Semifinal.


Congratulations to our SA rowers! 

Congratulations SA Varsity Women Rowers

What is Rowing All About Anyway?
