Description of what is/is not included in camp cost
The Henderson Development Camp will cost each athlete $100.00. The camp cost will include Northeastern University facilities and equipment usage, coach travel expenses, and racing gear. Northeastern has agreed to pay the USRowing camp fee, and to cover trailer expenses, in an effort to keep athlete cost down. Athletes are expected to be responsible for their own housing and meal requirements at all times, as well as transportation to and from practice and any regattas. Athletes will also be expected to provide regatta entry fees. All proceeds from the camp will be redistributed back to athletes to assist with these expenses. The opportunity to work a job or attend summer classes between scheduled practice sessions will be present.
Athlete/Coxswain qualification criteria
Athletes must be age eligible for the Under 23 World Rowing Championships. No athletes will be considered for acceptance to the camp who are under the age of 18. The athletes must be capable of producing 6:12 or faster for 2k and 20:00 or faster for 6k. While these times represent the standard for camp consideration, past performances at the national or international level will also be considered for athletes incapable of meeting these scores.
Camp Objective and Development Plan
The camp will prioritize qualifying a pair and four for the Under 23 World Championships, with further racing opportunities for athletes at Canadian Henley that do not qualify for these events. Athletes can expect 9-11 water sessions per week, structured around outside athlete commitments such as work and class. Small-boat rowing will be the developmental focus of the camp. Some physiological testing will also take place.
