Our 5-day LEARN-TO-ROW camp is open to campers with no prior rowing/coxing experience or those with very limited experience seeking a refresher course starting with the basics.

Campers will receive a comprehensive introduction to the sport. Campers will start on the rowing machines and quickly progress to our training barge and then racing shell. By the end of the week, campers will be ready to move into a novice program back at their home rowing team or return for our 5-Day Developmental Day Camp for experienced rowers (July 19-23).

LEARN-TO-ROW CAMP

  what to bring/wear

Monday, June 21 - Friday, June 25, 2021

All Navy Sports Camps have the common goal of developing a camper’s ability and exposing her to the Midshipman concepts of honor, integrity and discipline. All coaching will be from our highly esteemed Navy Rowing coaching staff.

Hubbard Hall (the Navy boathouse) at the United States Naval Academy

  • Athletic shirt/tank top and shorts (note: tight fitting clothing is advised as loose clothing can get stuck in the rowing equipment)
  • Masks
  • Packed lunch (please note that campers will not have access to a refrigerator or microwave, so please pack accordingly)
  • OPTIONAL: baseball/soccer goalie/football gloves for rowers... we typically do *not* recommend gloves for our sport as gloves can prohibit proper grip and feel of the oar, but as new rowers typically develop blisters on their hands we are making an exception for this year to help prevent the spread of germs (and to protect their skin from the harsh sting of hand sanitizer on open blisters... ouch!)
