The Orlando Area Rowing Society hosted an Open Boathouse event the morning of Saturday, Aug. 20, in the town of Windermere.
The open boathouse was one of the biggest turnouts the organization has had at the location with more than 75 different families coming to visit the boathouse.
Athletes guided their families through tours of the boathouse, newcomers conversed with coaches and rowers, and attendees had the opportunity to try out one of the boats themselves.
OARS has one simple mission: To develop athletes who will help the program achieve its vision of becoming the best rowing club in the Southeast region.
The OARS program is open to middle school and high school students as well as adults.
OARS rowers train throughout the school year to compete at state, regional and national levels.
