Camp Details

Learn to Row

The Resilient Rowing Club Learn to Row Camp is an introductory class designed for youth (ages 13-19) who are interested in getting a start with the sport of rowing. Each practice will introduce new rowers and coxswains to fundamental boat handling skills, on-the-water rowing techniques, and general basics of the sport. Graduates of this class are eligible to move up into the Resilient Rowing Club Developmental Program or join their high school's novice program to continue their long term development. Each session will be limited to a maximum of 20 athletes each.

Develompent Program

The Resilient Rowing Club Summer Developmental Program will focus on increasing technical proficiency of fundamental rowing technique through teaching rowers to row their weaker side and learning how to scull. This program will also focus on developing increased boat feel through rowing in small boats. The RRC Developmental Program is designed for rowers and coxes who have successfully completed a two-week learn to row camp or have at least one prior season of on-the-water experience, but are not technically ready for or cannot make the time commitment required for the Resilient Rowing High Performance or Competitive Teams. Each Session will be limited to a maximum of 40 rowers and 5 coxswains each.
 

Competitive Team

The Resilient Rowing Competitive Team will be comprised of rowers and coxswains, with at least one season of racing experience, that are ready to take their rowing to the next level. Athletes at this level should be looking to not only improve their fundamental rowing skills but also be ready to represent the Resilient Rowing Club Competitive Team at local and non-local regional regattas. Members of this team will train and compete in both sweep and sculling boats; with the goal of racing in multiple boat classes at each regatta attended.

Athletes that register for the RRC Competitive Team will be evaluated by at least two coaches over a two week long try-out period. The rower evaluation process will be based on a variety of factors including but not limited to: 2K Score, Weight Factor / Power-to-Weight Ratio, Peak Power / 1-min Watt Tests, overall fitness, technical aptitude / boat moving ability, and coachability. The coxswain evaluation process will include a variety of factors including: overall command of the crew, mastery of fundamental boat moving skills, ability to properly facilitate drills and workouts, and consideration of previous race results with review of audio/video recordings.

The try-out period will come to an end following the completion of the evaluation process and athletes will be selected to the High Performance Team, Competitive Team, or if further technical and/or fitness development is needed then it is also possible to be transferred to the RRC Developmental Program.

High Performance Team

The Resilient Rowing High Performance Team will be comprised of up to 16 rowers and 3 coxswains (for the boy's and girl's respectively), with at least one season of racing experience, that are ready to compete at the highest level. Athletes at this level should be looking to not only improve their fundamental rowing skills but also be ready to represent Resilient Rowing Club at the National and International levels. Members of the HP Team will train and compete in both sweep and sculling boats; with the goal of racing in multiple boat classes at each regatta attended.

“There isn’t a universal school or rowing team culture that catalyzes athletic, personal or intellectual development,” says Sparks, “That said, every school and rowing team has a culture. The question is whether it’s going to meet the student-athlete and encourage their specific potential.”
