Parent Organization

Sarasota Crew is supported largely by parent volunteer efforts. We hold parent meetings so that parents are well informed on program information, ways to get involved and have a chance to meet each other to provide support for a better environment for their kids. Parent meetings are scheduled at the beginning of the Fall and Spring Seasons and additionally as needed. Board Members, Executive Director, Head Coach, the Team Administrator and all parents are urged to attend.

The Parent meetings agenda typically covers Sarasota crew philosophy, goals, communications, expectations, attendance, regattas/schedules, general communications, who to contact, parking/pick-up, payments, weather, waivers, fundraising, and volunteer opportunities.  Sarasota Crew has very few employees and it is essential to our culture and operations that we have parents volunteering for the many areas we need assistance with. Whatever your skill set, we have a place for you to help.

Listed below are the different ways you can help.  Per our parent/rower agreement, each Rower Family is required to volunteer 10 hours per semester. For more information contact the committee chairs:
