The weather is MUCH cooler today, as the rain from last night, dropped the temperature about 10 degrees. It is still hot, so campers and coaches wasted no time getting breakfast and getting down to the boathouse. Counselors ran the group through a team Dynamic Warm Up, and coaches rotated boats so athletes and coxswains were working with new groups.
Athletes and coxswains were able to refine some of the technical skills they learned during the week, and working with new coaches keeps the sessions fresh and will allow the coaches to select line ups for RACE DAY tomorrow!
In the afternoon, campers did their final warm up and preparation for RACE DAY tomorrow. Coxswains met with Coach McElhenney and Coach Handler, and Coach McElhenney shared his Olympic Story and how the race unfolded.

EVENING LECTURES – TAKE YOUR PICK
This evening we had some EXCELLENT lectures hosted by our collegiate coaches. Campers could choose which lecture they wanted to attend. Coach Wendy Wilbur (University of Texas) discussed “Strategies For Your Best 2k”, Coach Michiel Bartman (Harvard University) shared his Olympic experience and lectured on “Goal Setting”, and Coach Kate Maloney (Williams College) talked about “How to get the MOST out of PRACTICE”. All lectures were well attended, and campers asked great questions.
This has been a great week, and the campers have been very engaged, and are looking forward to race tomorrow.
TOMORROW – RACE DAY!
