Marin Rowing offers week long introductory camps during the summer for ages 11-17. Summer camp is an opportunity to get on the water and see if rowing might be your next sport!
U-18 Learn to Row
This is an introductory camp; No experience is necessary! For athletes age 14-17; or those entering 9th grade and above. Time will be spent on land and in the boats practicing the rowing stroke and beginning to learn the details of how to move a boat effectively. By the end of camp, the campers will know the basics of rowing and will compete in short races against each other.
U-14 Learn to Row
This is an introductory camp for middle schoolers ages 11-13. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. We will spend time on land and in the boats learning the very basics of rowing. Please note that for safety reasons this camp moves slow and we spend a lot of time on land. We get them on the water as much as possible with safety being our number one priority. This camp is co-ed.
Athletes (age 13-17) must have completed a Learn to Row camp before the beginning of this camp (no exceptions.) The Continuing Skills Camp will pick up where the Learn to Row camp left off. We will be on the water for the entire camp, working on technique and power application in the boats. The goal of this camp is to demonstrate what we do on the competitive rowing team. We will teach technique that builds on the basics, emphasize teamwork, and introduce more of a fitness and training aspect.
How do I register?
Summer Camp Registration for Summer 2020 will be available January 2020
What is the suggested attire and what should I bring to camp?
Wear clothes that you can exercise in, nothing too baggy. We encourage you to bring a water bottle, closed-toed shoes and sunscreen. No swimsuit is necessary!
Do you offer camps for those aged 11-12 beyond the Learn to Row?
Not at this time. The U-14 camp for middle schoolers is the same introductory course every week. For participants in the middle school camp who are 13 and older can take the Continuing Skills camp that is open to all those who are 13-17 and have participated in the Learn to Row Camp (no exceptions!)
