USRowing Announces 2018 Under 19 Men’s National Team Camp Invitees

USRowing is excited to announce that the following athletes have been invited to participate at the 2018 Under 19 Men’s National Team Camps this summer. The four camps include the U19 Selection Camp, U18 High Performance Camp, U18 Small Boats and Sculling Development Camp and U17 Racing Camp.

Casey Galvanek, executive director and head coach of Sarasota Crew, is the head coach of the U19 U.S. Junior Men’s National Team for the 2018 season. Galvanek coached the junior men’s quadruple sculls to its best-ever finish at the 2016 World Rowing Junior Championships in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, with a bronze-medal finish. In 2015 on the Lagoa de Freitas in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the men’s eight won silver at the World Rowing Junior Championships under Galvanek’s guidance

The 2018 World Rowing Junior Championships will be held August 8-12 in Racice, Czech Republic. Last year, the U.S. men claimed gold and silver medals in the single sculls and eight, respectively.

The U18 High Performance Camp will bring together about 50 of the top athletes born between 2001-2003 who were not invited to selection camp. Following a very successful 2017, the rowers will train again in Ashland, Ore., before competing at the USRowing Club National Championships. All athletes will represent the USA U19 National Development Program at club nationals.

The U18 Small Boat and Sculling Development Camp will take place at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. The camp will provide an introduction to sculling, as well as the camp environment for those athletes seen as having the physical potential to contribute to the national team in future years.

Finally, the U17 Racing Camps will take place at four separate locations this summer to allow for many athletes to participate. Rowers will train in Ashland, Ore., Chattanooga, Tenn., Sarasota, Fla., or Saratoga, N.Y. Camps will be a mix of development work and racing education in sweep and sculling, providing athletes a greater understanding of how to further themselves in their development and become more ready to compete for a spot on the junior national team in future years. Athletes will complete their camp experience by racing at the 2018 USRowing Club National Championships.
