Stanford Rowing Center is community rowing club in the San Francisco Bay Peninsula area. SRC rows out of the Port of Redwood City near the beautiful waterways around and through Bair Island which is part of the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. SRC's mission statement is to establish and conduct a competitive, open rowing program for any high school age youth of the Bay Area Peninsula and to teach the youth sportsmanship, teamwork and life skills.
Safety is number one on SRC's charter. All of our boats and launches are equipped with safety lights and new coaches are trained 20 hours in a launch before they are allowed to go alone.
On the college level, SRC has alumni currently rowing at UC Berkeley, San Diego State, Villanova, University of Indiana, UC Davis, Oregon State, St. Mary's College, UCSD, Cornell, Lewis and Clark and Syracuse. We've also had alumni at Yale, University of Washington, UC Santa Barbara, Loyola Marymont, Boston University, Western Washington, Santa Clara, Long Beach State, Washington State, Univ. of Tulsa, Wisconsin and Bucknell. Some of these alums rowed with partial or full scholarships. The 2003 graduating class will be rowing at UCSD, Washington State, Univ of Tulsa, Univ of Portland, UC Berkeley and LMU.
SRC is an open club, accepting any and all high school women and men as well as adults. High school athletes in 8th grade are accepted on a maturity basis. SRC is also looking for athletes for the lightweight men's and women's program. If you are a high school woman, 115-130 lbs or a high school man, 145-160 lbs, come down and row lightweights.
The teams rows out of the Marine Science Institute Educational area.
