ARION

Advanced Rowing Initiative of the Northeast

Established in June of 2016, Saratoga Rowing Assoc. offers an elite residential training program to a select group of athletes with National Team ambitions.  Selected athletes receive the opportunity to live and train in Saratoga with the goal of elite development and eventually representing their country internationally.

ARION selects athletes with evidence of strong physical and performance metrics already in place, with the potential to develop further into elite level competitors.  Conversations with USRowing have highlighted that many DII and DIII athletes can be overlooked in selection processes as limited training volume has not permitted elite fitness to develop.  For this reason, the ARION program is not only looking for high potential DI athletes, but also for high potential DII and DIII athletes.

Are you an athlete with a growth mindset, who if given the opportunity to train full time for a few years, could compete at an elite level?  The ARION program has space for 10-14 athletes.  More information on the ARION Program at SRA can be found HERE.

Additionally, as elite training takes root in Saratoga Springs, we are pleased to offer a U23 summer development program.  This program is designed to help athletes take the next step in their growth put them in the best position to improve, and hopefully excite them to continue training and pursue elite-level rowing post-graduation.

If you have any questions about any of the programs, please feel free to email Head Coach Eric Catalano at ejcat3@gmail.com
