The Men’s Under 19 National Team will hold nine identification camps to help select oarsmen and coxswains for the 2017 Under 19 National Team that will compete in Trakai, Lithuania on August 2 – 6, 2017. These camps also serve as identification opportunities for the US Under 19 Men’s High Performance Camp and the US Under 19 Men’s Development Camp.
