All athletes will represent the USA U19 National Development Program at US Nationals. U19 National Team Coaching staff has a proven track record of developing U19 national team athletes to compete for junior world championship boats in future years. Athletes are introduced to the camp system that provides an advantage in future years. Many HP alums are found in U19, U23 and senior national team boats every summer (including the Silver Medal winning Men’s 8+ at the 2018 World Championships!).
# of Rowers: about 30
Goal: Develop young rowers (sweep and sculling) and coxswains, provide racing experience and win. Also provides a camp experience to young athletes who will hopefully continue in the junior national team system for several more summers.


U18 Men’s Olympic Development Program (Pilot)

This year, we will be providing a developmentally appropriate opportunity  for those U18 athletes not invited to the U18 High Performance Camp because they need additional work on either power development and application, technical skill sets or who are new to the sport as a U18 athlete but show great promise.  We will only be accepting a maximum of twelve (12) U18 athletes into this new program that will be co-located and will run in parallel to the U17 Program at each regional camp.

 

The 3-week regionally-based curriculum-driven success mindset camp will have a culminating event, as part of the ODP Summer Cup to be held in Sarasota, FL the week of July 7-14.

Dates: June 16 – July 15
Cost: $5,340 ($3,390 – Camp Fee + $1,950 ODP Summer Cup Training/Travel Fee)
Athlete Ages: 2003 and younger (U17)

Details: On-water instruction will focus on technical improvements necessary for boat moving ability. Sessions will work in 4+’s, 2-‘s, 2x’s, and 1x’s as they develop better boat sense and become more well-rounded rowers. This will be an ideal camp to develop high-performance athletes who need to develop a better boat sense while also providing small boat experience. The program will educate athletes on how to deal with the stress of selection, while placing them alongside other highly motivated and competitive individuals.


U17 Men’s Olympic Development Program

This year, our top U17 athletes will be a part of the newly adopted USOC U17 Olympic Development Program (ODP) Camps hosted in the six (6) USRowing Regions. The 3-week regionally-based curriculum-driven success mindset camps will have a culminating event, the U17 ODP Summer Cup to be held in Sarasota, FL the week of July 7-14.

What are the Benefits of Participating in USRowing ODP?
1. Development as an athlete. The opportunity to train and socialize with the best athletes in one’s age group.
2. Quality instruction from USRowing certified coaches.
3. Quality competition. The ODP Summer Cup will bring together the top U17 rowers in the country.
4. Exposure to regional and national team coaches.
5. The opportunity to represent one’s region in competition.
6. Exposure to college coaches who will be invited to the ODP Summer Cup.

Lastly, in addition to the technical skillset development detailed below, the curriculum will include invaluable education in nutrition, strength training, sports psychology, positive social media and SafeSport principles just to name a few.
