The Florida Junior SUP Team Is Born

Bailey Rosen, a 17-year-old Elite Florida stand up paddler, is stoked to announce the formation of the Florida Junior SUP Team. 13 groms with ages between 9 and 15, from all around the state of Florida, are currently part of the team. And they are all dedicated riders, with a great set of skills and also showing sportsmanship out of the water.

The Florida Junior SUP Team has the aim to give these kids a common ground with each other, and to encourage teamwork and camaraderie for the new generation of stand up paddlers. The guys on the team will also act as role models to kids just entering the sport, encouraging them to pursue a career in SUP and become great ocean athletes.

Team practices will be will be held at various SUP events all over Florida. Bailey Rosen will lead practices that focus on paddling technique, skills, and racing, as well as placing emphasis on sportsmanship and leadership. The team will also be supported by SUP Rookie of the Year Izzi Gomez, who will be assisting in coaching the kids in stand up paddle surfing.

We wish them all the luck and can’t wait to see them in action.
