Who: Anyone intending to race in the 2018 sprint season, at such events as Gold Rush (Lake Natoma), Southwest Regionals (Long Beach), Masters Nationals (Lake Merritt), or FISA Worlds (Sarasota, Florida). The camp is open to all ages and skill levels, aimed at helping competitors do their best whether it is their first race or they are seasoned veterans. Elite rowers are encouraged, but the camp is not “elitist”. The main qualifications are coachability and a passionate desire to be one’s best. LBRA members have priority until March 15.
Format: This camp will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with sessions devoted to single sculls, team sculling, and sweep boats. Participation is limited, to give a small number of individuals extensive quality time. Lineups will be fixed and will ideally reflect the full crew as it intends to compete. Emphasis is on technical competency and efficient form. Videography will be extensively used and closely critiqued. Breakfast and lunch provided.
Cost: $150 (1x) – 3 sessions, maximum 4 scullers
$250 (2x/4x) – 6 sessions, maximum 8 scullers
$250 (4+/8+) – 6 sessions, maximum 16 rowers
How to Join: See Rob Glidden, Sherri Kline, or Sarah Mackenzie to apply. Acceptance is based on merit, as judged by Linda and with input from LBRA coaches. Timely application is also a factor.
