William and Mary Rowing Team runs a summer camp for high school students that allows them to spend a week over the summer training twice a day with our varsity rowers in order to improve their rowing technique (while sweeping). On the last day of the week the rowers will participate in an intracamp race!

The varsity rowers will also introduce the campers to William and Mary with a tour of campus. Please visit their website http://www.wmrowing.org/camp/

United States Naval Academy
June 2017

Their overnight camps offer campers a full immersion into the sport for five days, with two-a-day rowing sessions and land seminars in-between. They keep their coach to athlete ratio low (1:10) and plan a curriculum that addresses the technical, mental, and physical aspects to the sport. The camps are open to girls ages 13-18 (rising 8th graders through those just graduating from high school). Their sessions run June 11-15, June 18-22, and June 25-29 and the all-inclusive cost per camp is $900 (teammate and sibling discounts are offered).

Penn AC

I'm currently in the process of recruiting for Penn AC's summer program. We offer a 5-week training camp in Philadelphia. We train at Penn AC and live in the dorms at the University of Pennsylvania. Athletes who live locally in Philadelphia may live at home at a reduced day camper tuition rate.

Penn AC offers a unique competitive summer racing camp. Athletes train twice a day and race both at Independence Day Regatta and at Club Nationals. We also spend time on land discussing mental skills, rowing in college, nutrition, sleep and other developmentally appropriate topics. For more information, please visit our website.

I would love to get in contact with any athletes you have who are eager to improve and develop their skills and might be interested in training over the summer. While there is a published recommended 2k time of 7:45 for U19 athletes and 8:20 for U17 athletes, I am more interested in athletes who are boat movers, strong race results and a desire to better themselves as athletes and teammates. I

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Ready, Set, Row!

I am happy to announce that Ready Set Row will be offering three different summer camps for young women in 2017. We had an absolute BLAST last summer! Please check out our videos and an interview with USRowing.

We have had so much interest from parents and had so much success with our athletes, we have expanded to offer a training opportunity for middle-school-aged girls too!

All of our athletes will receive technical instruction and strategic coaching for on-the-water and indoor rowing. Every athlete will also receive RSR Mental Skills Training (obviously the longer the camp, the more thorough our mental weight-lifting). Please find below the basics for all three camps and read about them on our website.

1. RSR Summer Development Team; June 18-July 17, 2017 at St. Andrew's School in DE. All athletes (age 14-19) will compete at USRowing Club Nationals in Cincinnati. This year, all DEV athletes will complete the full, daily RSR Mental Skills Training and engage in four full Bravery Training Sessions with RSR Coaches and BRAVE Enterprises. They will also engage in daily meditation exercises to further our training in emotional management and distress tolerance; $4,899.

2. RSR Foundation Technical Camp; Aug 14-19, 2018 at Dublin School in NH. Athletes (age 14-20) learn rowing technique, RSR Mental Skills Training and basic nutrition and strength training; $1,395.

3. RSR Foundation Technical Camp; Aug 21-24, 2017 at Dublin School in NH. Athletes (age 11-14) learn rowing technique (no experience required), basic RSR Mental Skills Training and basic nutrition and strength training; $1,095.

University of Virginia 

Hello Virginia Junior Rowing Programs,
I'm Erich Shuler, the novice men's rowing coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Virginia.

Registration is open for the 2017 Wahoo Rowing Camp for Boys at the University of Virginia.

We are very proud of the offerings. We hope you'll forward this e-mail to your athletes and encourage them to attend. We guarantee your rowers will return home technically, physiologically, and mentally improved.

Camp size is strictly limited in order to ensure a good athlete-to-coach ratio and to provide as individualized a program as possible.

Many crews, from Florida to Detroit, from New England to Texas — even from Europe --- send groups of their athletes, and we are happy to accommodate them in terms of room assignments, boatings, etc.

Four sessions are offered.
  • Sunday, July 2 to Friday, July 7
  • Sunday, July 9 to Friday, July 14
  • Sunday, July 16 to Friday, July 21
  • Sunday, July 23 to Friday, July 28
Please don't hesitate to e-mail or call with questions.
Thanks, and take care!
