Why go on rowing camp?
Many of the large professionally run rowing clubs organise their own camps just for their own member athletes. They travel abroad disappearing for days, just to improve their rowing technique, select crews and build fitness for the racing season. Masters frequently also go on camp with the objective of trying to improve their rowing technique or preparing for their next big regatta. There are also specialist camps for novices and beginners who seek coaching to get themselves started in the sport. Many parents send their children to rowing camp so they can get a week of holiday fun with similar aged children and also to help them improve before the next school year and get a chance of selection for top Schools and First Eight racing crews.
Europe is a great place for rowing camps and run by professional rowing camp companies.
Just to be clear here, we’re talking about paid professional rowing coaching in a camp environment. Experienced coaches have often been successful rowers before they started teaching others. Sure – not every good rower becomes a good coach, and not every good coach was a world champion – but still it important that the coach you choose for your camp has racing experience and s/he knows what they are talking about.
