Overnight Camp Description/Features
The Lehigh Overnight Rowing Camp is for rowers and coxswains of all experience levels, ages 15-18. Both boys and girls will experience a curriculum designed to advance each camper's technical skills and racing abilities through highly individualized instruction. Campers will have two on-the-water rows daily, as well as erg instruction, and video instruction. Coach's will also provide discussions and instruction on topics of core strength, college recruiting process, and coxswain development. Our experienced coaching staff will facilitate a fun and challenging environment to teach all campers how to become faster rowers.
Day Camp Description
The Lehigh University Day Camp is designed to give those athletes of all ages with busy schedules to learn either how to row or to improve their current abilities to make themselves faster. The program will include on and off the water training techniques and teach the understandings of the rowing stroke. Rowers will be on the water Rowers will be on the water everyday (conditions permitting) and use the indoor training facilities at the boathouse. Rowers will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the camp each day.
Why Learn to Row?
Besides being a lot of fun, rowing is one of the fastest growing sports in America. Most Colleges and Universities have rowing teams, and most college and Olympic rowers start as college freshman. This camp will give you a head start going in to college no matter what your current experience level. Rowing also looks great on a resume and on a college application. All of the elite schools in America (i.e.: Lehigh, Harvard, Stanford, Cal, Yale, Williams, etc.) recruit rowers heavily. Rowing is a non-impact sport, and the best workout there is. It is a sport you can do for life and many do!.
- Rowers should come prepared for weather and with plenty of water, sun screen, etc.
We will row in rain. In the case of flooding or thunder and lightning the rowers will have an indoor training and technique day.
Safety is our number one concern. If for any reason the staff feels that the crews should not go out, there will be other rowing related activities at the boathouse.
Lehigh Rowing reserves the right to suspend (without refund) any rower caught with drugs or alcohol, behaving improperly, or being disrespectful to coaches or other rowers. This is simply for the safety of the coaches and other rowers.
Each rower will receive a Lehigh Crew t-shirt.
- Rowers will not be permitted to work out if they do not bring any necessary medical supplies with them to each practice (i.e. inhaler)
Lehigh Crew reserves the right to cancel any session which is under enrolled, and will give a complete refund for that session
- Parents are responsible for letting the coaches know of any medical condition a rower has which may affect his or her ability to participate.
