Rower's Assistance Program

The Saratoga Rowing Association is pleased to be able to offer the Rowing Assistance Program (RAP) for rowers in our Jr. Competitive and Learn to Row programs. RAP, funded by SRA and other donors, is designed to help offset program fees and is awarded based on need. Parents may apply for RAP for all Jr. Competitive programs including Spring, Summer & Fall, as well as the Charles R Wood Summer Learn-To-Row. A first time uniform clothing order may also be eligible. Other programs such as sculling and specialty camps are not eligible for RAP at this time.


The Rowing Assistance Program is set up to cover a portion of each season’s fee when awarded. If a uni-suit and cool max shirt are needed and this is the first order, please indicate that on the RAP application. Though no one will be 100% funded, amounts given will be determined by financial need and will be dependent upon funds available. Parents may reapply for subsequent years. The parents will be required to send the most current year’s Federal 1040 tax return, two most recent pay stubs and fill out a RAP application below. RAP applications should be mailed or dropped off to the address shown on the application by the deadline date communicated for each season in order to allow time for processing. All information and inquiries will be strictly confidential.


RAP is an ongoing commitment of the SRA and will be of help to families that may require financial assistance. Should you want to help sustain this fund, you may make restricted donations directly to RAP at any time. Please contact SRA at 518-587-6697 for further information about making a donation or for questions on how to apply.
