Welcome to ROCCS

ROCCS is made possible by a dedicated group of parents, volunteers and benefactors who, from our very humble beginnings, have worked tirelessly to bring the world class sport of rowing to students and the citizens of Citrus County.

ROCCS History


ROCCS is a non-profit educational and recreational organization serving the residents of Citrus County. We are committed to provide the finest opportunities and experiences for rowing instruction, competition, and enjoyment of the sport. Excellence is our standard and teamwork is the key to our success.

Whether you’re a seasoned Master rower or have never held an oar in your hands, ROCCS provides year-round recreational and instructional programs so that you can know the joy of rowing.

There is no doubt that rowing changes lives. Anyone who has rowed can testify that there’s nothing quite like the feeling of freedom and accomplishment that gliding across the water brings.

Rowing is a sport that develops endurance, discipline, teamwork, along with mental and physical toughness. This builds relationships between the athletes, helping them to learn to work together as a team.

Not limited to just students, all ROCCS members develop and employ these positive attributes that help to make our community stronger and a better place to live.

Rowing encourages the athlete to become involved in a positive, structured activity that instills a sense of well-being and confidence that the ROCCS members carry with them throughout their entire life.

It is the mission of ROCCS to make the sport of rowing available without regard to individual ability, background or experience, or ability to pay. We seek to raise the standard of rowing programs that we make available through our adherence to the highest standards and to share our knowledge and expertise with others for the advancement of the sport at every level.

ROCCS is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. All donations and fund-raising proceeds are used entirely by the club for educational, coaching, equipment,  scholarship, and community events expenses. With the exception of our coaches ROCCS is staffed entirely by volunteers. We do not pay any administrative salaries, fees or expenses.

If you would like to become involved at any level or would simply like to learn more please contact us here.

Please spend some time to explore this website and learn all about ROCCS and what we have to offer.
