Welcome to the 2018-2019 Youth Rowing Season!!!

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  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

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!
