ROCCS: Rowing Organization of Citrus County Students


Youth rowing

Helps young rowers build a solid foundation of strength, technique, and teamwork, both during the summer and all year round. (Looks great on applications, too.)

Master's rowing

Helps adults aged 18 and over build strength and cardiovascular endurance while enjoying our beautiful Florida wetlands. Open to all levels of experience.

meet our coaches

Head Coach Reza (far right) has been a part of ROCCS since his eldest daughter joined the ROCCS Summer Camp all the way back in 2010. Now a seasoned coach with more than a decade of experience under his belt, Reza loves seeing new rowers learn and grow. 

Coach Chad (middle) first gained an interest in rowing in 2016. After his first trip out on the water, he was immediately hooked, and went on to develop a mastery of the sport (or, well, learn how not to tip over so much).

Support roccs

ROCCS is proud to be able to offer the amazing sport of rowing to the Inverness community. As the first and only rowing club in Inverness, we are the primary channel through which local residents can learn to row and hone their skills. We hope you will join us in our mission of making rowing accessible and affordable for everyone.

We are a not-for-profit, 100% volunteer-led group. Our coaches and board members donate their time, and all our event supplies, equipment, and miscellaneous expenses are funded through donations.
