Six day overnight camp for boys and girls ages 13-19 with at least one season’s experience or novices with experience in at least one other rowing camp. Our focus is on individual instruction. Rowers are categorized by experience into groups of eight and assigned to a Master Coach. This results in an effective student-to-coach ratio of eight-to-one. The Master Coach is on the water with only one crew at a time. Rowers are also instructed on the erg by our Erg Coach and taught core strengthening exercises by our Core Mobility Coach. The result is a very comprehensive pre-season tune-up!
A Coxswain's Coach will administer specific instruction for coxswains. In addition to participating in all of the events that the rowers attend (on the water instruction, video reviews, erg demos and clinics), each coxswain will attend off-the-water coxing sessions. Detailed instruction covering topics such as boat-handling, executing workouts, rigging, racing skills, physiology & psychology, cox/coach relationships, etc., will be discussed. This is an opportunity for coxswains to obtain valuable detailed instruction from the most experienced coaching staff available.
*Coxswain Special: Recommended when all of our cox’n seats are full. Participate in the full program. Everything but the steering. Ride with coaches on the water.
