Row West Racing Camp

​Camp Details

Camp Dates - August 5th-13th

This year's camp will involve extensive  technical rowing instruction on the water and the erg and some fun competitive race scenarios designed to help athletes learn how to bring out their very best. Campers can expect 12-13 water practices in addition to several classroom sessions focused on topics ranging from nutrition to mental toughness to mobility and the college recruiting process. 

Our goal is to send our campers back home ready to tackle their fall goals and contribute to their teams as leaders on and off the water.

Rowing Fundamentals
Improve your posture, stroke mechanics and bladework. 


Erg Technique
Learn how to get faster scores by rowing more efficiently on the erg.

Mental Skills

Develop the power of your mind in  classroom seminars focused on various aspects of your mental performance.

Learn how to fuel, when to fuel and what foods should and shouldn't be used as fuel.

Flexibility, Mobility & Balance
Every practice session will involve drills meant to expand range of motion, decrease risk of injury and improve balance.

Skill. Courage. Commitment. 

​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 teaching 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
  • 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.
