The "Section 2 Rower’s Showcase” is a yearly recruiting event held by Saratoga Rowing Association; The purpose of the event is to connect local rower’s with college coaches while educating their parents on the recruiting process. The event will also be held on the Friday, December 7th, at the SRA Training Facility and Boathouse. This year in 2018, we've opened the event to all athletes willing to travel to Saratoga.
New York State has over 70 teams and over 600 entries at the NYS Scholastic State Championship last year. This year, we’ve opened up the Showcase so you have the opportunity to recruit and promote your program. Please fill out the following questionnaire so we can disseminate is to the athletes prior to the event.
