Bus: We can only provide a bus from Pine View this fall due to the expense. We can help figure out carpools so please reach out to us if you need help. To sign up for the bus you simply register under the Join Us -Youth Rowing -Transportation tab.

*****To assure that you are receiving communications from Sarasota Crew as a parent you need to register under the parent section of the website.  Please click here  and register for high school, middle school or elementary school, as appropriate. You will have to log out as your rower to be able to sign up for the emails.
