Women’s Pairs Training Camp

Coached by the University of Washington coaches, athletes will learn methods and implement the strategies that are foundational to the success of elite college programs via small boat training.

Rowers of all ability levels will benefit, but a minimum of 1 season of racing experience is highly recommended. It can take several days to properly introduce a new rower to boating equipment and safety procedures before they ever touch the water. For this reason, we ask that rowers only sign up for this camp if they have prior rowing experience, however it is open to any and all women ages 13-19. If you are still novice in the sport, consider signing up for our Development Camp instead.
