    • Race fees have been able to be lowered because we budgeted for all races. We are unable to decrease the amount if a rower chooses not to make a race. We do not allow families to pick and choose which races they want to pay for as we plan for the entire team attending to keep the prices down.

Bus: We can only provide a bus from Pine View this fall due to the expense. We can help figure out carpools so please reach out to us if you need help. To sign up for the bus you simply register under the Join Us -Youth Rowing -Transportation tab.

*****To assure that you are receiving communications from Sarasota Crew as a parent you need to register under the parent section of the website.  Please click here  and register for high school, middle school or elementary school, as appropriate. You will have to log out as your rower to be able to sign up for the emails. Often we send notifications to only subsets of parents so if you have athletes in more than one age level, please register in both areas to assure that you receive the appropriate emails.
