The University of Wisconsin offers multiple sessions of Women’s Rowing Camps. These camps are week long programs for both beginning and experienced high school rowers and coxswains.  Throughout the week campers will look forward to daily technical and physical training on beautiful Lake Mendota. No prior rowing experience necessary! Rowers and coxswains will be grouped according to experience. We tailor each program to the individual needs of the athletes, both in size and rowing experience. Beginners can learn the basics of a fascinating sport while the experienced rowers get individualized instruction toward creating maximum boat speed. Campers can expect 2-3 workouts each day. In addition to on the water instruction, athletes will be exposed to core and circuit training, video analysis, and lectures by UW athletic staff on goal setting and athletic development. Coxswains are highly encouraged to attend and will receive specific coaching and development through coaches as well as collegiate varsity level coxswains.

This is an incredible opportunity to try your hand at one of the premier Olympic and NCAA sports with no experience required.  Rowing is fun, team orientated, and a great way to get noticed by colleges.  Most collegiate rowers never rowed in high school; rather, they played volleyball, swimming, basketball, hockey, soccer, cross country, etc and used their athleticism to earn a spot on a varsity collegiate crew.
