NY State Coaches, HS Junior & Senior Athletes and Parents,

With the fall season underway, the honest truth is that upperclassmen are not only preparing for racing, but preparing for college and their college search.  It’s a stressful process with lots of moving parts; Saratoga Rowing Association would like to help.

This year, SRA will offer the Section 2 Rower’s Showcase for the 3rd year in a row.  We’ve continued to expand our offerings to everyone willing to travel to Saratoga.


  • This event is only open to current high school Juniors and Seniors.
  • Throughout the course of the event, you will be asked to do various drills, complete a 5-minute piece at rate 22, and demonstrate your peak power.
  •  While coaches will be limited in the communication they can have with you, you’ll have every resource you’ll need to demonstrate your competency as a rower & follow-up with them after the event.
  • Athletes who register early will be receive an athlete bio, which every coach in attendance will receive.
