Novice Jr. Rowing Summer Camp

In rowing, “novice” just means 1st year rower.  Freshman, sophomores, juniors or seniors can all be “novice”.   It’s never too late to start – even incoming seniors have found their college sport!

This two week camp for High School students is a great introduction to the sport for those interested in joining NAC’s rowing team and those that want to try a fun summer sport. Participants will be taught boat safety and handling, introductory stroke technique, and the importance of rowing as a team.

Each camp runs two weeks.  After finishing Novice Introduction camp and with the recommendation of their coach students can join the NAC Advanced Camp.  It is extremely beneficial and necessary that the two weeks are completed together.
