Impact Statement

Accomplishments:

· All programs combined serve over 400 athletes (2016-2017), from  Elementary, Middle School and High School youth to Master rowers.  Our youth rowers come from 27 different schools from Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties. Approximately ten percent (10%) of all of our High School rowers receive need-based Scholarship Grants from Sarasota Crew.

· Summer camp and outreach program participants number well over 200 - many are from local Sarasota communities and never before have had the opportunity to experience the sport of rowing or the beauty of Bay Preserve at Osprey.

· Successfully launched Adaptive Rowing - providing opportunities for individuals with disabilities - and Corporate Rowing Programs in 2013.

· Fundraised over $150,000 in 2013 to complete a new dock as well as parking lot enhancements, significantly increasing traffic flow and the safety of all guests accessing the waters at Bay Preserve at Osprey.

· Sarasota Crew enjoys an excellent reputation among top-ranked collegiate rowing programs nationwide. In the last four years our scholar-athletes have won three Florida State Championships (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, a National Youth Champions (Men’s V8 in 2013 and placed 3rd Men's V8 and Women' s V8 2014) and the Southeast US Regional Championships (2012, 2013,2014,2015 and 2016), with over 20 athletes on the Junior National Team and over seven representing USA at Junior World Championships.

· We provide educational opportunities that would not have been possible without participation in Sarasota Crew; our scholar athletes are recruited and accepted at top colleges and universities nationwide.

- Purchased a 3.2-acre property in Osprey with funding from Sarasota Crew families to build a permanent home to support our local athletes
 
Goals:
- Increase scholarship opportunities and expand partnerships to deepen our impact and expand the outreach of programs for low-income families and athletes in need.

· Develop Community Collaborations and launch a Capital Campaign to realize a transformational project for our organization and the community with the building of the first boathouse in Sarasota dedicated to developing our local youth through rowing, allow expansion of programs and create a community recreational water access location.

· Develop data tracking solutions to better manage outreach, donor relations, and reporting for increased efficiency.

· Continue preparation of all scholar-athletes for matriculation to college.

Needs Statement

1. Scholarship funding to increase program opportunities and outreach support for local athletes in need. Sarasota Crew expensed over $40,000 towards discounted fees and tuition last year. The average cost per rower is $2500 for tuition and $1800 for regattas. A major goal is to increase scholarship funding significantly in 2016-2017.

 
2. Transportation to our facility for athletes in need.  Inability to transport athletes to practice after school when family members are working is a major impediment or prohibitive for some athletes. Establishing additional transportation solutions will enable increased participation for many and would prove more efficient and cost effective for many youth families over time.
 
3. Funding to assist with building a Boathouse on our recently purchased property on the Bay in Osprey 
 
4.  Funds for new equipment or repairs as equipment wears to ensure safety:

a. Rowings Shells. An eight man rowing shell costs $40,000

b. Coaches Launches: $4,000 each

c. Erg machines: $8,500 for 10 Ergs

 
5.  Funds for Adaptive Rowing equipment. Specialized equipment is needed for athletes with physical disabilities. Cost varies with the disability, but our current need for a veteran athlete interested in our program is $15,000. 
Background Statement
In the summer of 2002 a group of visionary and dedicated parents and coaches recognized the need in Sarasota for a rowing program centered on positive and impeccable sportsmanship and decided to start a new youth rowing club. But, the going was tough. The new club was only a vision and desire - no boats, no site, no rowers, and no access to good, rowable water. Fortunately, Linda Mansperger, Executive Director of Historic Spanish Point supported the idea of locating the new club on the grounds of Historic Spanish Point and on July 2, 2002 Historic Spanish Point's Board approved the idea. The next day, July 3, Sarasota Crew was launched. We started with a few rowers and grew the program to 55 rowers that first year.
 
 In early 2008 the club moved to the new facilities at Bay Preserve at Osprey - home of the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast, a 4.3-acre campus devoted to public access to the beautiful waters of Sarasota Bay. This new home provided a base for youth rowing in Sarasota County and allowed the club to develop its ability to positively service the needs of youth rowers even more effectively.
In 2013 with the support of our families, The Selby Foundation and Sarasota County we were able to build a new dock at this facility which allows us to train more rowers and at one time and to launch more safely. 
 
Our vision remains strong, our determination firm, our actions energetic. Today we are credited as being the largest youth rowing organization in the country with one of the most impressive records of success.  
 
We are in a continuous process of improvement and we have lofty goals.
We have a dream to build the first youth-rowing focused boathouse in Sarasota and to expand our prgrams and services and to make rowing accessible to all youth in our community regardless of their financial circumstances.

We are located in Osprey, FL, yet we serve youth from all of the neighboring counties. Our  roster draws primarily from 14 area schools. 

Boys and girls from across our service area have expressed a strong interest in rowing. Strained financial resources are cited most often by parents of children who wish to row but ultimately do not. We are striving to level the playing field for these children, in order to provide them this potentially life-changing, growth opportunity.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

It has been my honor and privilege to serve as the President of the Sarasota Crew, a youth rowing association. I am pleased that we have been able to provide an outlet for all youth in our area for a clean, healthy, and physical environment especially since it is our goal to provide the experience of rowing to all disadvantaged youth, whether the disadvantage is by virtue of financial, physical, or racial considerations. We are fortunate as a group to be able to serve as guardians of the disadvantaged youth in our area and will continue to do so. We recognize our duty and obligation to the future of rowing but more importantly to the future of our children.

Sarasota Crew has used its first fourteen years to ground itself and to build the strong base needed for a truly excellent youth rowing program. Many have contributed strongly to building this base. Sarasota Crew's parent group is exceptionally vibrant and involved - actively supporting the athletes and providing immense help across many areas. With the support of our families and friends, Sarasota Crew is able to increase its impact and ensure opportunity for many. The club works daily with extremely qualified and effective coaches, and through their leadership and professionalism Sarasota Crew has succeeded in establishing itself at both the state and national levels and is now considered the largest youth rowing organization in the nation with one of the most impressive records of success.
Currently, the challenge is to be able to accommodate our growth. Sarasota Crew's approach to developing youth through individualized attention and goal setting has resulted in a tremendous record of success. Our success coupled with our reputation for developing student-athletes and opportunities for college and beyond has impacted our tremendous participant growth. We now require a permanent facility where we can continue to expand our truly great youth rowing club. Our move to Bay Preserve at Osprey allowed the club to develop its ability to positively service the needs of youth rowers even more effectively, and we will continue to operate programs at this site. and expand our program offerings. A new boathouse will provide covered boat storage, indoor work-out facilities, locker rooms, and expanded programs and continued growth to serve more youth. Our vision remains strong, our determination firm, our actions energetic. We strive to positively impact as many lives through crew as possible, to be an effective agent of change, building a foundation for development of today's youth and helping them succeed in becoming the best they can be, both as rowers and in life. Sarasota Crew is dedicated to providing opportunity and access while working to enhance the lives of everyone we touch through the sport of rowing.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Sarasota Crew has continued to evolve from simply a competitive youth rowing program serving Sarasota and its surrounding counties to an established leader in offering access for youth development to at-risk youth and those who cannot afford to participate in sport.  We have increased our efforts to broaden participation from an ever widening spectrum of the youth within our local area. 
 
Our focus is on the overall development and growth of each individual student-athlete with a goal of self-improvement.
Programs
Description

Sarasota Crew offers a variety of rowing experiences and camps each summer. Our summer camps are attended by 3rd-12th graders who typically are new to the sport of rowing. Further, in an effort to give more experienced rowers an opportunity to improve their skills over the summer, Sarasota Crew also offers three levels of clinics with very low coaching to rower ratios. For some of our elite youth rowers and collegiate alumni, the summer program offers a chance to compete at the highest levels in North America. The cost of attending summer camps ranges from $250 – 600, depending on participation level.  Focus on increased scholarship opportunities for disadvantaged youth remains a priority.  

 

The summer camps are run by a team of our paid youth coaches, as well as alumni of our program. The summer camps also provide some of our more experienced and passionate Varsity rowers with the opportunity to give back to Sarasota Crew by volunteering as counselors.

As part of their acknowledgement of their scholarship, we ask rowers to write thank you notes so that we may send them to our sponsors.  Here are a few of our rower comments from this year:

                 

Being out on the water gives me a great feeling that can’t be mirrored anywhere else.  I am forever indebted to whoever provided me with this opportunity.” – 14 year old novice rower

 

“The team over the last five years has become my family and my coaches have been amazing.  Nothing has taught me to set goals and actually follow through trying to achieve them like this sport.” – 17 year old Varsity rower

 

“I am deeply gratified to be the recipient of a scholarship.  The organization of Sarasota Crew means the world to me.  Not only have I come to love the sport and want to excel in it, I also appreciate those who I have met to make the journey worthwhile.” – 14 year old freshman rower

 

One way crew helps me is that I have to keep my grades up. Without a 3.0 I cannot be on crew.  If I weren’t to get this scholarship, I wouldn’t be able to be on the team because my family cannot pay for it.”– 16 year old varsity rower

 

With your donations, you have not only helped me to be on Sarasota Crew, but you have helped me have a better chance of going to college.  Thank you for giving me the tools to achieve my goals in the present and the future.” – 18 year old varsity rower

 

I like to be in a sport where I have a lot of friends and also have fun. The coaches and staff are really nice.  Thank you for the scholarship, without it my mom would not be able to afford to keep me in the program.” – 15 year old novice rower
Long Term Success Our athletes are able to participate in all competitions and enjoy the advantages of excellent training and camaraderie.

While Sarasota Crew is primarily a youth rowing program, we offer coached rowing development and boat storage for experienced Masters Rowers. Our goal for the Masters Program is to generate sufficient revenues that it becomes self-sufficient with a financial surplus for use towards youth scholarship. Currently the program has experienced significant growth with 30 participants and growing.  The Master rowers have participated in a variety of competitions at the state and at the national level.  On August 2013, at the Masters National Regatta, our Lightweight Men's 2x won the gold medal, the mixed 4x won the silver medal and the women's 8+ won the 4th place.

Our Underlying Operating Principles are:

  1. Providing a positive developmental experience for all rowers is a fundamental club objective
  2. Competitive success achieved through impeccable sportsmanship is a vital avenue to enhancing self concept, character, and teamwork
  3. We will strive to boat every rower at every attended regatta
  4. Coaches have sole discretion in matters such as boating rowers, selecting races within a regatta, setting practices and practice regimen, and captain selection. Such selections shall be based on the coaches' assessment of rower capability, skill, effort, attitude, cooperation, and projected impact on the boat.
  5. We will strive to always be a strong contributing partner in our relationships with the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast, Historic Spanish Point, and with our broader community
  6. Maintaining a fully functional and vibrant club depends heavily upon parental contributions of time, energy and resources
  7. The club is a joint effort by many. The personality or control of any single individual will not dominate the actions of the club

Management Comments by Organization

To provide the funds necessary to meet our future operating expenses without increasing our cost to families, Sarasota Crew is working actively to engage with additional partners and donors to provide additional support for this organization.

 

Sarasota Crew is a financially sound, not-for-profit, youth rowing club located at Bay Preserve of Osprey in FL. Our Directors, Coaches, and families share the conviction that the sport of rowing provides one of the best educational experiences for young men and women and serves as a catalyst to positively transform and shape rowers' lives. Sarasota Crew membership is open to any young man or woman who has a desire to row. The Club does not conduct try-outs.

 

Our many rowing successes are a testament to the strength and determination of our rowers, our coaches, and our supporters. We strive to ensure that every interested student-athlete has an opportunity to excel at the sport of rowing - at their own individual learning level and pace. Our rowers graduate from their high school programs, having been provided with extraordinary life skills in preparation for the future. Regatta rowing officials, as well as rowers and coaches from competing teams, regularly praise Sarasota Crew rowers on their excellent sportsmanship, boatmanship, and conduct while at competitions or in public. Sarasota Crew rowers are expected to be good stewards of our environment, socially responsible and representing our community and our sport in the best light at all times.

 
Rowing is not an option for many young people who wish to row and who would benefit from our program. While we do our best to subsidize tuition costs, the limited availability of scholarship monies continues to keep families from providing children with the opportunity to experience this program.

 
Over the last 2 years, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of families who request and require our scholarship funds. This has impacted the club’s ability to extend offers of partial financial assistance to new families whose sons or daughters wish to row.

 
Most importantly, without additional funding, we cannot continue supporting all those who now rely on scholarships, providing continued opportunity for young men and women for whom tuition, at any level, is a significant hardship.

 
Sarasota Crew is deeply committed to funding scholarships, and our existing scholarship efforts are the centerpiece of our program.
