  • NOTE: To visit a practice contact our coach, Al Chase. For more info about the Blades, check out our website at <a>http://sfbayblades.org.</a>;

    The San Francisco Bay Blades is a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organization dedicated to promoting both the sport of rowing in the LGBT community and the visibility of LGBT athletes in the rowing community.


    Our focus is competition. We're seeking athletic people who like to train hard and compete. Previous rowing experience is great, but it's not necessary so long as you're eager to learn.

    And... we have a good time together! Practices always have their moments of levity. We virtually always have brunch together after Sunday practices. We also organize social events for the Blades "Family": team members, partners, friends, former members, prospects and so on.

    We invite you to visit a practice, meet some of our members, watch from the coaching boat, and see for yourself if it feels like a good fit.

    Please get in touch if you're interested!
