Saint Andrew Rowing Club (SARC) is pleased to offer the Summer Intro to Rowing Summer Camps! Intro to Rowing summer camps are offered to rising 6th through 12th graders wishing to learn the sport of rowing or improve their existing knowledge and skills in this majestic sport. SARC Intro to Rowing camps are one or two weeks long, with options to participate in the morning, evening, or all-day sessions. We highly recommend that your athletes sign up for more than one week to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the wonderful world of rowing and learn what crew life is all about.
Our experienced coaching staff and seasoned athlete-volunteers make our Intro to Rowing experience like none other. Campers will learn about the sport through hands on experience in eight and four-man rowing shells. Campers will also learn rowing safety, boat handling, terminology, and beginner-advanced rowing technique all while enjoying the beautiful Chattahoochee River. Additionally, our Intro to Rowing camps offer the most continuous time on the water of any rowing camp in the Metro Atlanta Area and they are an excellent preparation for rowers who may wish to join one of our squads in the fall!
SARC is located behind St. Andrew Catholic Church, located at 675 Riverside Road, Roswell, GA 30075.
