What makes our SA Rowing club so special?

We are an elite Junior Rowing Club focused on providing our athletes with individualized coaching and training to ensure peak performance for competition.  We are the only Junior Program in the metro area with both a dedicated indoor training facility and acres of outdoor training area to ensure the best and most consistent training experience throughout the year. 

We recognized that every organization has a unique personality and culture, and would like to invite you to experience SA for yourself. We believe our rowers and coaches are at the center of our family and look forward to sharing a few days with you.

Head of the Charles, October 22-24th, 2021

What an amazing result for SA! 

The Head of The Charles Regatta was founded in 1965 and is the world’s largest rowing race, regularly fielding more than 11,000 athletes from around the world to compete in a full line-up of sculling and sweep rowing events.  This year, St. Andrew Rowing club entered both a women’s youth 4+ and an 8+ with ages ranging from 14-18. 

In a head race, teams race on the same course at different starting times and the team with the best time wins. The Head of the Charles is a three-mile course. Races begin at Boston University’s DeWolfe Boathouse and the finish line is three miles upstream at the Eliot Bridge in Brighton. 

Not just anyone can enter the Head of the Charles, as with the Boston Marathon, teams must qualify.  For sculling, you must have finished in the top 25% in the previous HOCR race and with sweeping, in the top half based on entries.  SA has now entered a few HOCR races and because both SA’s boats finished in the top 20 this year, SA is eligible to compete in 2022!  Our Women’s youth 8+ finished 12th out of 76 entries and our Women’s youth 4+ finished 20th out of 84 entries!  We will see you at the Head of the Charles in 2022!


USRowing Southeast Youth Championships:  SE Regionals were held at Melton Lake in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Our rowers demonstrated the growing strength and depth of the team, with medals in men's and women's events, in small and large boats, and at different levels. We are very excited that multiple SA boats qualified for Nationals! #SAFamily

HEAD OF THE HOOCH REGATTA:  SA rowers completed in their final race of the Fall Season in Chattanooga, TN at the Head of the Hooch Regatta.

Background:

St. Andrew Rowing Club is a separate 501c(3) non-profit organization (EIN 58-2149631) not affiliated with the Catholic Church. In 1988, St. Andrew Catholic Church allowed Georgia Tech Rowing to lease a small piece of their beautiful campus along the Chattahoochee River. As a stipulation for doing so,  a few generous Parishioner helped fund and establish the first Junior Rowing program on the Chattahoochee. 40 years later, we still enjoy a wonderful partnership with both the Georgia Tech Rowing Club and St. Andrew Catholic Church. We are committed to being an excellent steward of the property and area surrounding the river. We continue to fund the club through registration fees and the generosity of our amazing SA Families.
