August 13-17, 2018


The CRC will be hosting a High Performance Rowing Camp during the week of August 13-17 for athletes aged 14-18 years with high performance background or aspirations with no prior rowing experience. 

Goal: To teach athletes how to row in both scull and sweep shells and quickly bring them to a competitive training level. 

The camp will run from 9:00 AM - 2PM

Throughout the 5 days, focus will be set on:

  • Rowing machine (erg) technique
  • Rowing in the indoor tank
  • Rowing on-water (scull and sweep)
  • Rowing specific weights training and technique with NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Tessa VanDerVeeken (VDV Performance)
  • Learning to race

During registration, athletes will be required to complete a survey detailing their previous athletic and weight training experience to help us target programming to athletes needs and abilities.
