Cost, Dates, Practice Schedule, and Races: TBD. Check back in January 2019

 

 

 

Sculling Development Camps

Open to junior/high school that have completed at least one season of rowing.  TRRA will be offering three 2-week sessions.  The focus of these camps is on sculling skills, particularly in small boats.  Rowers do not have to have any prior experience sculling, but they do need to have completed at least one rowing season.  Though these camps will focus on skill building there will still be a significant training component.  Athletes should be prepared to work hard mentally and physically.

Learn-to-Row/Introduction-to-Rowing Camps
