Middle School Summer Camps
Summer is great time to experience rowing on Lake Union. Our youth recreational summer programs offer boys and girls the chance to learn rowing for the first time or to continue to develop their rowing skills.
Our U15 Skill Development Camp takes a creative approach to the fundamentals of sculling for young athletes of all experience levels. Designed with the developing athlete in mind, this camp prioritizes fun-forward methods of learning through games, boat tricks, and much more. All athletes, from the true Novice to experienced rowers, will develop a solid understanding of safety, rules of the water, self awareness, sculling technique, and fitness.
The U15 Skill Development Camp includes dry land training and educational activities in line with our goal of educating the whole athlete. This includes, but is not limited to safety training, team building activities, yoga, circuit training, and strength exercises.
The daily schedule will include warm-ups, rowing instruction and practice (on land or water) and land-based team/strength building activities. NB: Safety is our number one consideration. Scullers should be prepared to row on land should conditions prove un-rowable.
Nutritional refueling sessions are provided after every practice!
