Who We Are & Our Mission
Delta Sculling Center provides access to fitness, health, leisure and recreation for people of all abilities through the inclusive sport of sculling (i.e. rowing). We adapt our boats and equipment to fit the needs of individuals so that everyone can participate. So even if people have physical, cognitive or sensory/perceptual challenges, they should be able to find freedom on the water. We want to support everyone, no matter what motivation brings them to us, for example, those who want to become more fit, regain/improve health, find a new sport, enjoy the Delta, train for competition, improve their sculling technique, or find an adaptive sport.

Union Pacific Foundation Board Grant
They say it takes a village to make a difference, and the Union Pacific Foundation Board takes that to heart. Delta Sculling Center was just awarded a substantial grant from Union Pacific to fund the continued participation of differently-abled and disadvantaged athletes in DSC’s sculling programs. The Union Pacific Foundation states their mission is to be a good corporate citizen in the communities they serve and to make a difference where their employees live and work. This grant will allow the differently-abled and disadvantaged to have ongoing access to the volunteer staff, sculling equipment, amazing coaches and most of all, the camaraderie of their fellow scullers. Delta Sculling Center – EveryBODY Sculls would like to offer our utmost thanks and gratitude for this exceedingly generous gift. Thank you, @UnionPacific !!!
First day of New Sculling Class - Delta2.0!
Indoor Rowing Championships 2017
What a weekend for Delta Sculling Center! January 28th was the Golden State Indoor Rowing Championships in Folsom, CA. DSC fielded one of the largest teams in attendance at 16 participants! Huge congratulations to everyone who raced and to Rachel, Leo and Linda on their hard-earned medals. Afterwards saw the continuation of a favored tradition - lunch at Brookfield's.
The following day, Leo, Rachel, Katie and Pat piled into two SUVs and headed east to the Peninsula Indoor Rowing Championships at Canada College. Rachel and Leo once again medaled in their events and Katie finished strong (medaling against her nonexistent competitors in her heat :D). Why two SUVs for four people? Pat brought home two new ergs to join the growing DSC erg population.
