Registration for 2014 Summer Camp Open Now!



The College of William and Mary Summer Rowing Camp
prides itself on offering a superior, lengthier, and more affordable summer rowing camp experience than just about any other program nationwide. Our camp is for intermediate (at least 1 semester of competitive rowing) or advanced (rowers will need a note from their coach) sweep rowers aged 13-18, and costs $650 for the 6 days of rowing camp. Each session will be coed, and campers will participate in meals and the evenings' activities together, but will practice and room separately. Camp will begin Sunday evening with check-in and introductions, and will culminate the following Friday afternoon with an intra-camp race.  For the duration of the William and Mary Rowing Camp rowers will room in William and Mary dorms (2 per room), eat three meals a day in the college's dining halls, and practice at the college's indoor and outdoor rowing facilities, which include the Student Recreation Center the new Tack Family Boathouse.
 

While at camp, rowers will practice twice daily with the William and Mary Varsity coaches, Jason Mitchell and Graham Ludmer, who will focus on a different aspect of the rowing stroke or recovery at each practice. Before heading out on the water, rowers and coxswains will be provided with a well-articulated breakdown and explanation of that practice's focus including any subtle nuances demanding special attention. Such a thorough breakdown and explanation will be employed in order to help rowers better understand the physics behind rowing, what rowing coaches look for from their athletes and boats, and why they look for it. Our coaches will engage rowers and coxswains at practice with the help of dockside rowers, form-specific drills, and after practice video analysis. Our coaches will also discuss the many different levels of collegiate rowing, and the opportunities provided to student-athletes at those collegiate programs.
 

In addition to the strong focus on rowing form and conditioning, campers will be introduced to life at William and Mary, the second-oldest college in the nation, in a well-supervised and structured atmosphere. On top of all the rowing activities campers will have planned nightly group activities such going to the movies and playing capture the flag on old campus, boat Jeopardy, and other games.
