Olympia Area Rowing is governed by a volunteer, member-elected board which oversees the functions of the club, makes policy and implements decisions, is responsible for fiscal implications, and leads the club into the future.

The board approved a strategic plan with three major initiatives:
OAR Strategic Framework 2014-2018

Our Mission
OAR promotes and provides competitive and recreational rowing for adults and youth in the local community, fostering sportsmanship, teamwork, athleticism, and camaraderie.

Volunteers are what makes the club successful — OAR members, coaches, junior rowers and their parents — and our many supporters in the community.
