Time Commitment:

Sessions will run from 6:30 to 9:00 am.  Times may vary based on weather or schedule conflicts.  Athletes are expected to be on time, and picked up right after practice.

What to Expect:

Practices will be held both at the gym, and on the water unless conditions are not safe to row (lightening or heavy rain/flooding).  In the case of inclement weather, we may need to rearrange the schedule to accommodate weather conditions.
Each athlete will need to wear rowing or biking shorts to practice.  You must bring at least 64 oz. of drinking water to practice each day as there is no running water at the boathouse, Transcend however is a fully functional gym. Coach Kaehler will have additional water available.  Porta-Johns are available in the park.   Hats, sunglasses, and sun screen are strongly suggested.

Athlete’s Requirements:

Each athlete must pass a 100yd swim test which is witnessed and signed by a local swim club.   Parents must sign the US Rowing Waiver (provided), and participants are suggested to become members ($45/yr) of US Rowing.  This is a true team sport, therefore we expect all athletes to show up on-time for all sessions unless they are sick, or have an excused absence.  If an athlete has more than two excused absences he/she might not be permitted to continue.
This camp is for experienced rowers.  2k /6K erg scores must be submitted to determine the training level of each athlete.

Body Balance Evaluation:

Each participant will receive a 35 -40 minute Body Balance Evaluation to identify each athlete’s specific flexibility and strength imbalances.  Corrective exercises will be taught in a group session.  Everyone will receive his or her own specific corrective exercise program.  Evaluations will be done during the first week of the camp.  Time slots for the evaluations will be posted prior to the camp.

BCRA Launch/Dues:

Practices will be run by Coach Kaehler unless otherwise noted.  The launch will have (4-8) US Coast Guard approved life preservers on board depending on how many athletes are on the water.
Athletes will not have to join the BCRA for this summer camp.  If participants choose to continue rowing at BCRA beyond this, they will need to become members.


This experienced sculling camp is limited to four (4) participants per session.   This is designed to teach athletes how to develop power and strength to their rowing stroke.  Strength training sessions are designed to develop maximum rowing strength.
