Our camps give serious athletes the opportunity to improve their skills and gain valuable race experience.
San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2015
Nike Crew Camps continues to build its presence from coast to coast with Cal Men’s and Women’s Rowing in California and the addition of Colgate University Rowing in New York. The alliance with these two premier NCAA programs marks a significant step for US Sports Camps in providing exceptional development opportunities for young rowers who are looking to receive world class coaching and exposure to the collegiate recruitment process. While camp is suggested for rowers with 1-2 seasons of racing experience, all rowers are welcome as they will be assigned to boats and training groups based on age and ability.
Both Cal and Colgate boast an internationally acclaimed coaching staff with extensive experience working with top athletes, including those at the Olympic level. Each staff member will work with rowers in small groups to provide each camper with personalized instruction, analysis of individual strengths and weaknesses, and create a plan to ensure improvement throughout the camp and beyond. The coaching staff will also lead a session on admissions, recruiting, conditioning, strength training, strategy, nutrition and elite level rowing (including US Club Nationals and/or Canadian Henley).
"Our camps give serious athletes the opportunity to improve their skills and gain valuable race experience. We also provide valuable tips on how to dramatically improve their erg scores. All of our campers leave better prepared for varsity competition," said Cal Men’s Rowing Head Coach, Mike Teti.
