The USRowing Men’s and Women's Identification Camp is to identify athletes throughout the United States with U-23 or Senior National Team potential. These camp offers the opportunity for athletes across the country to:
- Demonstrate their talents on the erg and potentially on the water
- Mix it up with other talented athletes
- Learn more about the national team
- Meet national team coaches
The open camp in OKC is targeted to collegiate men or women with U-23 or Senior National Team potential and aspirations. Those who are recently out of college or in graduate school also are encouraged to attend.
Rowers: Male rowers can be aspiring to the U-23 or Senior National Team with an erg range under 6:10 for 2k and 19:30 for 6k for open weight men and 6:25 for 2k and 20:20 for 6k for lightweight men.
For open weight female rowers, the erg range is under 7:15 for 2k or 23:15 for 6k.
Coxswains: We will need 2-3 coxswains per camp. However, this is not intended to be a coxswain identification camp. Coxswains can learn, possibly assist and have the opportunity to cox or ride in a launch if space is available. Please contact me if you have an interested coxswain.
Date and Location:
The camp will consist of erg testing and presentations about test results, summer rowing opportunities, national team q &a etc. Erg testing will include a max power test, one-minute test and a 30-minute test.
