Fun, Fitness, and Teamwork!
Coaches will teach the youth all about rowing. From boat handling techniques to on the water rowing sessions, our coaches will teach our charges what it is like to be a rower.
Safety rules, boat handling techniques, boat components and common rowing terminology will be covered.
The week long camps are broken down into an orientation session, rowing sessions and off-water sessions.
Each day, the youth will have three to four hours of rowing time (weather and water conditions permitting), starting off in the "Bruno" the barge, and progressing to singles by week-end.
Rowing is also about dry land training. Our coaches will teach them about the different aspects of dry land training. From team games to relay races on the rowing machines, dry land training centers on developing conditioning while having fun!
The Summer Splash Regatta
The week ends off with the Summer Splash Regatta. The rowers will have their chance to show off their rowing skills as they race down our 500m course for a chance to win the coveted Slurpee Cup!
