The SRB Rowing Board is made up of interested members of the community, parents of rowers and alumni. It is responsible for setting policies and oversight of the rowing program and manages operations of the organization from day-to-day to long-term strategic planning. The board meets the second Monday of every month at the boathouse. Activities of the board include, but are not limited to obtaining corporate donations, establishing endowments, developing fund drives for the construction of a boathouse and sponsoring the First Coast Head Race.  The board consists of committees that coordinate daily volunteer support, travel and food, staging of two major local regattas, travel support for various competitions, and organization of many other events to support the program.

All parents/guardians of rowers are encouraged to attend board meetings to stay engaged in the decision-making of the organization.

Budget 

Each year’s budget is prepared by reviewing the program’s actual costs over the last two years. This review typically shows that the cost of the program exceeds the rowers’ fees. SRB has a proud tradition of making up this difference through enthusiastic fundraising which needs both rower and parent participation. Although we do not anticipate excess funds at the end of the year, any excess is used to fund program expenses. 

Fundraising 

Fees do not cover the total cost of the rowing program. Fundraising is necessary to help cover program expenses. Rowers, parents and foundation members are all part of a team; therefore, all rowers are encouraged to participate in fundraisers, and their parents are encouraged to assist with the coordination of these events. Some of the successful fundraisers we coordinate are: 

First Coast Head Race | Mulch Sales | Annual Night on the Riverbank
