SOUTH ORLANDO ROWING ASSOCIATION

Programming

HIGH SCHOOL

High school rowers of all levels come together to practice and compete with our well-respected and highly ranked crew. Our program has produced numerous state champions and rowers who are ranked amongst 2018’s Top-Ten fastest in the nation.

PROGRAM GOALS: Our goal is to produce the fastest boats possible while working with the individual athlete to instill a strong work ethic, pride, teamwork and a sense of responsibility.  Rowers will be grouped together according to skill level and coached accordingly. Rowers will earn seats in racing boats.

TEAM STRUCTURE:  The Novice Team is the group of rowers who are in their first year of rowing. They practice together and race other novice teams. The Varsity Team is made up of rowers who are in at least their second year of rowing. Novice rowers may be moved up to train and compete with varsity rowers when coaches deem readiness.

Middle School

One of the oldest and most respected programs in central Florida, our middle school crew introduces young people to the sport through a comprehensive skill development program. Participants race other middle school programs at local regattas and learn what it takes to row competitively.

PROGRAM GOALS:  Our young athletes learn to row in a fun and supportive environment. They learn sweeping (rowing with one oar), sculling (rowing with two oars), and how to use the erg (rowing machine) properly.

TEAM STRUCTURE : Under the direction of our coaching staff, these rowers train and compete in boats of various sizes and SORA is pleased to share we are the only middle school team in central Florida that trains our middle schoolers in sculling.

PRACTICE: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday - 5:30pm - 7:00pm
