Participating in the Sweep Rowing Program

ORC has a long history of highly competitive sweep rowing and has repeatedly earned gold, silver and bronze medal finishes at the Head of the Hooch, USRowing Masters Nationals, FISA Masters Worlds, as well as countless Florida and regional regattas. But we also embrace recreational rowing as a lifelong exercise for health and wellbeing.

While our more competitive teams traditionally practice in the early hours, recreational options are available both morning and evening. For those wanting to join a particular sweep rowing team, either competitive or recreational, we can connect you with the boat captain or coach to schedule your first visit. Our team skill levels range from novice, intermediate to advanced.

Our sweep rowing team schedule is goal oriented and members sign on for a full session, culminating in a regatta(s) at which we plan to race. The current session schedule for 2020 is as follows:
