The aspect of challenge appeals to many rowing athletes - after all, you can never be perfect at our sport. Leadership programs at Sparks seeks to provide athletes with an opportunity to develop better self-awareness around how they deal with challenge.
Technical and physiological development are easy to produce. The question becomes whether they are byproducts of a larger process of growth.
Admissions for our leadership programs is not based on speed so much as students' ability to be part of small group that enables that larger process.
All of our leadership level programs also include an hour of college counseling for families upon campers' return, though the programming itself has the power to catalyze much of the discussion.
