    ROWING CAMP TUITION INCLUDES:

    • Coaching
    • Videotaping with critique
    • Use of Florida Rowing Center’s equipment for the on-water sessions
     
  • I'm a beginner, what's available for me?

    Beginners are welcome, and can learn quickly in this setting. However, in order to provide a comprehensive introduction to the sport of sculling, the Florida Rowing Center recommends a minimum of 3 days (2 sessions per day)  for beginners. The only prerequisite for participation is that you have reasonable swimming skills.

    A BEGINNER/NOVICE SCULLER IS DEFINED AS ONE WHO:

    Has never been in a boat before; this is the first time sculling.
    Has never been in a sculling boat but rows on an indoor rower.
    Has sweep experience but has never sculled.
    Has limited sculling experience (less than 3 times on the water).
    Rows but is very unstable, has a hard time rowing a shell without flipping.

  • What can I do to prepare?

    PREPARING YOUR HANDS FOR ROWING CAMP:


    To prevent blisters while at sculling camp you can condition your hands by applying rubbing alcohol to your palms daily for two to three weeks before the start of your camp.

    A normal exercise routine is also a good idea.

  • What should I bring?

    ITEMS YOU WILL NEED FOR EACH ROWING DAY INCLUDE:

    Tank top or T-shirt
    Long sleeve T-shirt
    Lycra or comfortable shorts (not too loose)
    Tights and a sweatshirt for cool mornings
    Athletic socks as no shoes are worn in the boat
    Flip flops or sneakers to wear down to the dock
    Water bottle
    Sunscreen for lips and skin
    Sunglasses - due to our harsh sun exposure, sunglasses are required on the lake.
    Hat or sun visor
    Towel
