Under 19 National Team ID Camps

These camps  serve as identification opportunities for the U19 National  Team,  US CanAmMex Team (U18), High Performance Team (U18) and Regional Olympic Development Program (ODP) Camps (U17/U18)

They are instructional with a focus on providing insight into what is required of our best rowers and coxswains and the tools to achieve success at the international level. Our national team coaches will work hard to demonstrate ways the athletes can improve and to help athletes discover that the U19 National Team program is both attainable and fun.

Highlights of the ID Camp program include:

  • The U19 National Team — who we are and what the selection camp and development camp are all about (open to parents and coaches).
  • The learning experience of the 2018 Junior World Championships with a question and answer session with a member of the 2018 squad — where members are available. (Open to parents and coaches).
  • Expectations and things you can do to become a more effective rower/coxswain including how to use tapes (both audio and video) for feedback, technique issues and review/demonstrations of core strengthening/circuit training exercises (open to coaches).
