Skill. Courage. Commitment. 

Training - June 17 - July 10

The training phase will involve intensive on and off the water learning, practice and competition that will ultimately determine boating assignments for Club Nationals. Campers can expect 10-11 water sessions per week in addition to 2-3 weekly classroom sessions focused on topics ranging from nutrition to mental toughness to mobility and strength. 


Club Nationals - July 11-16

The team will fly to Cincinnati, Ohio, for a week of racing at the premier summer regatta in the U.S. Our goal is to get our athletes as many high level racing opportunities as the schedule allows. 

​Camp Phases

​Competitors Wanted!

 

quite simply, we're looking for young women who want to be the best and are willing to do what it takes to get there.

 

Row West is a high level racing camp with limited spots available. We will be inviting between 27-30 rowers and 3-4 cox'ns. This will be an elite group. Applicants will be evaluated on the following criteria:


  • Erg Performance
  • Body type
  • Age (we hope to invite at least 8 rowers and 1 cox'n who are 2000 birthdays or younger)
  • Race resume 
  • Coach's recommendation
  • Statement of purpose (we're going to ask you to write a short essay)

All of these criteria operate on a sliding scale. High marks in one area can make up for lower scores in others.
