Every Navy Rowing Camp has an athletic trainer on-call for the duration of camp. All staff working with our campers are also First Aid and CPR certified.
The Naval Academy Athletic Association requires our campers to provide a complete and valid physical examination form that was completed within one year of the start of camp. This would be a form from your daughter's doctor, much like the one you would submit to her school. If her doctor or school does not have a specific form, you can substitute this with a letter from her doctor, stating the camper is in good physical health and able to participate in a rigorous athletic camp. Please include any allergies and/or daily medications.
If you wish to submit the form in advance of camp, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also have the option of submitting it in person at camp check-in.
*Please note: we must have a copy of the physical/letter by no later than camp check-in. If you choose to submit your medical form in advance of camp via email, you will be emailed confirmation of its receipt by our camp staff.
**Our camp does NOT have a specific form to fill out. Please refer to the guidelines provided above.
At camp, all campers and staff will be required to wear masks with ear loops (no gaiters) to all camp activities outside of lunch/snack. All physical activity will be performed at low to medium intensity to allow for the safe wearing of masks while working out. Additionally, all oar and erg handles and any other equipment that campers will use will be sanitized before new camper use.
Physical distancing between campers while in boats is not possible in our sport, but we are limiting registrations so that we can keep physical distance for all land activities and maintain our historic low camper-to-coach ratio of 10:1. All activities, including briefs and lunches, will be conducted outside unless we experience unsafe weather and need to take shelter in the boathouse (in which case physical distancing and mask usage will be closely monitored and enforced).
Additional procedures and policies, including medical screening requirements prior to daily check-in, will be shared as we get closer to camp as we continue to monitor state, local, and Navy health guidelines in our efforts to ensure a safe and rewarding Navy Rowing Camp experience.
