Sparks Coxswains Only Camp

Body of Water: Oklahoma River
Cost: $2,250
Ages: 14-19
Description: An intense coxswain camp. Participants are publicly (and supportively) critiqued by the coaches, their fellow coxswains, and, eventually, themselves. Our Coxswain Only Camps are designed for highly competitive, advanced coxswains seeking to gain a structure to develop and differentiate themselves. Coxswains are challenged to openly critique themselves, looking constantly at what they could be doing better. The feedback, amount of information, and long, hot days can be overwhelming for some coxswains. We found those who are highly dedicated to improving and tackling new challenges benefit the most from this camp. Successful participants are able to return to their programs with improved skills, insight, and the motivation to continue improving throughout their season and beyond.

Sparks Development Camp

Date(s): June 19- July 21
Location: Dunedin, New Zealand
Body of Water: Otago Harbour
Cost: $5,750
Ages: 16-19
Description: Our Development program in Dunedin is our first international program and remains by far the most arduous. It is designed for thoughtful, dedicated, and resilient students seeking challenging experiences to better enable their development in and relationship with the sport. Successful participants have possessed a high degree of athleticism, thoughtfulness, and commitment to their overall development, rowing and beyond. The majority of participants improve their 2k score, however, the program is too demanding to offer a reasonable cost-benefit (financial and emotional) if participants only seek better ergometer scores. Dunedin is best suited for students who are rising high school seniors or older and who are planning to row at the university level or beyond.
