This camp is amazing. With years of experience it is insane how much you can still manage to learn and correct. This camp is able to help coxswains achieve any goals imaginable regarding coxswain skills. The coach directors are incredible and do whatever they can to help you become better. I would recommend this camp to any coxswain whether you are looking to improve, learn, or advance themselves in the sport.
Absolutely the best coxswain camp around. Personalized, focused training dedicated exclusively to the coxswain. Excellent coaching staff with one on one attention. This is the coxswain camp for the serious cox. It was an incredible experience for my s
We have attended two Sparks coxswain camps - one in CT and one in OK. Both have been excellent - not easy, nor are they intended to be. They teach them how to teach themselves, and our daughter has been able to come back and is still getting something out
