Learn-to-Row Camp

The Ohio State Women’s Learn to Row Camp is designed to introduce new or lesser experienced athletes to the fundamentals of rowing. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY! Participants will start with the basics of the rowing sequence and progress to racing on the water by the conclusion of camp.

Rowing is a great, low impact way to get fi t that will work all muscle groups, including your heart and lungs. Rowers are some of the world’s fi ttest athletes. On the water and on land, rowing combines a full body motion that off ers complete physical and mental conditioning. Most of all – IT’S FUN!

Having rowing experience can help you get into college! Many collegiate programs are looking for experienced rowers that have the physical and mental prowess to contribute to their teams – and many off er scholarships! Campers can expect 2-3 workouts a day, video review, mental training and fun between.
