For the first time, the Stewards Foundation Men's team breaks onto the medal dock. Ricardo Pena and Will Hoyt in the Lightweight 2x took home silver medals, and Henry McGonnigal and Cristian Lopez in the Freshmen 2x went home with bronze. The future is looking bright! On the girls side we also had success with the efforts of Sarah Kosarzycki, Kerry Wilson, Carly Finley, and Julianna Wright earning silver in the Lightweight 4x; and Lexi Klein, Ashley Ball, Holly Drapp, and Kaley Wojciechowski earning silver in the Varsity 4x. On to Sweep Champs!
On March 18th, 2017, the Stewards Foundation will be hosting the annual Tampa Mayor's Cup Regatta. This event is a celebration of rowing in the Tampa community, and The Stewards are proud to continue to host this race and continue it's legacy. The event includes high school, collegiate, and masters athletes all competing to be the first one across the line. If you're a coach, and you haven't yet done so, please check out the regatta info on RegattaCentral here: Tampa Mayor's Cup.
There are multiple options for those interested in providing sponsorship. For more information, please view our sponsorship package: Tampa Mayor's Cup Sponsorship.
We need your help! As many of you know, there are many moving parts at a regatta, which require many volunteers to keep it running like a well-oared crew (no pun... well, okay, pun intended). Launch drivers and stakeboat holders have the best jobs because they get a close up view of the action! Please use the link below to sign up for a spot!
The spring 2017 rowing season is underway! Experienced rowers hit the ground running (literally) or erging today, and some took to the water to help some new rowers learn the ropes. There is still time for new rowers to come out and try the sport, since we'll be taking new registrations all the way through the end of January. Maybe you're currently playing basketball, or another winter sport that doesn't end until February. If that's the case, I'd still like to find a way to give you the chance to try rowing. I truly believe that, while many students become year-round rowers, it's also a great sport to help you improve athletically for the multisport lifestyle. Our training embodies the meaning of teamwork, and we will push you to your limits aerobically and anaerobically. Come see for yourself. Any high school students interested in trying the sport can contact Head Coach, Mike Smith via email or phone- 813-786-0337 (c).

Have you tried other sports, only to find yourself on the sidelines watching others play? You trained just as hard, or harder and were limited in opportunities? Or maybe you've been looking for ways to get involved and make more friends, or to challenge yourself? Whatever the case, you've come to a place that can help you, and we welcome you with open arms.
Rowing is a unique sport in which each individual commits their own strength, will-power, work-ethic, and personality to the entity of their crew. Nine individuals join together in one system of power and grace to cross the line before the other crews. Within a team dedicated to this concept, there is a place and an opportunity for everyone to succeed.
On Saturday, and during the entire week of 1/9-1/13, we are holding free learn to row sessions for high school students. We encourage you to come on out and see what it's all about! If you can't make one of these sessions, no problem- Come to any practice to talk to our rowers and coaches to find out more!
Dates and times: 1/7- 8-10am; 1/9- 1/13 4:15-6:15pm.
Location: 7117 US 301 N. at Harney Park.
Enrollment for New Rowers: Open through the end of January.
