    The Board of Directors of the South Orlando Rowing Association wants to welcome each of you to the 2018-2019 rowing season. While we are a non-profit organization established to promote rowing and build competitive teams, we are also a collection of rowers, parents and enthusiasts who are excited to watch these athletes do what they love to do most of all...race!

    Lead again by Terry Davison, our veteran coaching staff returns for another champion-producing season, but our summer lineup began with a novice Board of Directors. Together, we are deeply committed to keeping SORA a great place to row. Each one of us is eager to see your athlete thrive. We are grateful for your interest and welcome your comments. Your inquiries can be sent to any one of us via email, or feel free to catch us in the boatyard or on race day. Additionally, this Board would like to offer a hearty, “Thank you!” to the last Board of Directors for their tireless efforts. Thank you for keeping SORA - and all of us - going strong.

    Also new to the 2018-2019 SORA lineup is Program Coordinator, Kelly Hagan. She will collaborate with the Board and coaches to help make sure we are compliant, on track, and best meeting both individual and team needs. You can contact Kelly at kelly@soracrew.com.  Robert McClory returns to keep our website current, to assist with online member interactions, and to keep our rowers’ accounts up-to-date. Robert is best reached at support@soracrew.com

    Also back again are many of you - our tireless volunteers. Thank you for your efforts at the successful Breakfast at the Boatyard event. We appreciate your time and look forward to working with you more throughout the season. Your contributions make a significant difference and SORA would not be the same without you.

    This new season holds a lot of potential for our teams. While life in any organization is always changing, there are some things that are constant. Fast rowers in fast boats means fast fun...and we plan on helping create a lot of that while we cheer your athlete on.

    Until we see you - row fast, work hard, and have fun. And GO SORA!

    Sincerely,

    Dave Keezel, President - dkeezel@gmail.com
    Susie Schmideler, 1st Vice-President - qmaliblue@gmail.com

    Deadline 2/20/18

    In an effort to be pro-active this year, we want to get all of our High School rowers pre-registered for States as soon as possible. They are very strict about this process so please read and follow the instructions below. We appreciate your help with this. Please send the requested documents/picture to support@soracrew.com or as a reply to this email.

    Returning rowers (see list below) only need to do step #1

    1. Current School Enrollment Documentation

    Documentation showing the athlete is currently enrolled in a Florida state secondary education program. The document must include 4 items: athlete’s name, institution attending, grade level or graduation year, and current date. Examples of acceptable forms that should have all 4 required items: class schedule, transcripts, report cards, ED-line info page, etc.

    --------------------------------------------

    2. Athlete Photo

    A recent digital photo of each athlete taken individually against a mono-color background with a clear view of their face (a referee looking at this photo must be able to recognize the athlete wearing the ID). Preferably the image should be no more than mid-torso up. No sunglasses or hats, caps, visors, etc. Photo should be taken in a portrait orientation and recommend files size is about 1MB (thumb nail size photos are not scalable and will be rejected). If it's a phone picture, send the full-size or original-size file.

    If you are not on the list at the end of this email, you also need to provide the following:

    3. Photo ID

    Any school or government issued photo ID with name and photo on it is acceptable. Examples: passport, county park ID, driver’s license, green card, military ID, etc. If the student does not have a photo ID, they can get a Florida ID from their local DMV office.

    4. Date of Birth

    If the school documents and photo ID submitted don’t have a Date of Birth listed, provide a copy of the athlete’s birth certificate.
