What is the Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Association?

We are a community-based, member-driven organization, existing to help our members and the broader community experience and excel at the sport of rowing. The Sport of Rowing is evolving with an unprecedented diversity of athletes in recreational and competitive fields, growing acknowledgement of the significant health and therapy benefits of rowing, as well as the role of rowing in the realm of youth fitness and universal access. Our water resources are fragile and need protection, water is vital to the sport. In managing our affairs, we place a high value on each of the following:

  • Pride and Sportsmanship in competition and practice on the water and off the water
  • Respect, Trust, Sensitivity and Transparency in all our relationships
  • Integrity in our dealings with each other, members, partners, and affiliates

In pursuit of our mission, we will maintain rowing operations while offering affordable rates to our membership. We will seek and be responsive to mutually beneficial collaborative arrangements, alliances or partnerships with other organizations, government agencies, etc. In doing this we will seek and pursue environmentally sustainable best practices in all operations.
