Youth Summer Camp

Teaches athletes ages 12-18 about the sport of rowing in a fun and educational setting. Students learn water and boat safety, stroke mechanics on the ergometer (rowing machine) and the basic techniques of sweep rowing and sculling. Those who would like to continue rowing may join our Junior Team or Modified Team.

Dress Appropriately

Wear comfortable athletic clothing that can get wet or dirty. Avoid baggy shirts, shorts or pants that could get stuck on the oar handles or the sliding seat. Shoes are not worn in the boat, so be sure to wear durable socks. Rowing is a water sport and it is easy to get wet, so bring a change of clothes.

warning Pre-requisites

  • All participants must know how to swim and complete the swim test certification before the first practice. Note that rowers do not wear life jackets in the boat. The coaching launch is equipped with life jackets for every rower.
  • You should expect to lift 25-30 lbs above your head. A fully-rigged eight person rowing shell weighs around 200 pounds. With eight people lifting and carrying, each person shoulders 25 to 30 pounds. You should consult with your physician before starting any strenuous exercise program such as rowing.
