2013 - High School Rowing Camp for Boy's

Welcome to our 2013 High School Rowing Camp at Boston University's DeWolfe Boathouse

June 24-28, 2013

Boston University - Boston MA
This years High School Camp is a 4 -1/2 day intensive rowing session.  Athletes will train in Eights with an opportunity to get into sculling boats such as singles and doubles. This camp will enable rowers to take their rowing to a significantly higher level through high level technical coaching and training. Training in small boats enhances the skills of any rower, enabling them to move a boat more effectively. College coaches like to have athletes with proven small boat skills.

*Like other years, we expect this camp to fill. Camp slots will be limited, apply early.

The camp is open to boys ages 14 - 18 with rowing experience. Rowers do not need sculling experience.  We will take a limited number of athletes without rowing experience.

Assistant Coach -  CB Sands-Bohrer. CB is a two time World Champion in sculling. CB coaches competitive sculling at Community Rowing (CRI). CB will work with rowers in singles and small boats.

Focus of the camp
A priority is placed on having our athletes develop a more complete understanding of the rowing stroke, boat movement through the water, proper blade work and efficient technique that will maximize speed. A focus will also be placed on strength and flexibility training, nutrition, and how to train on the rowing ergometer. There will also be a session on the college recruiting process.

Camp sessions will be held at the Boston University DeWolfe Boathouse, which is located near the BU Bridge at 619 Memorial Drive. It is a short walk from public transportation.
