SCHOLARSHIPS

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

    Strong and legitimate technical instruction.

    Solid instruction, good group of rowers and coaches. Strong and legitimate technical instruction as well as relative elaboration on college admissions process.  Nice boats, comfy beds, good food. All of the sightseeing and the campus tour were pleasurable and memorable.

    My son really enjoyed working with Cal's coaches and rowers.

    My son really enjoyed working with Cal's coaches and rowers (a highlight) and the fact that they changed up the camp based on the needs and interests of the camp attendees. Coaches, Cal Rowers, level of intensity increased for the needs of the rowers that attended. Boat house was great. Camp leaders were fun, interesting and took the campers around to great places.

    The Cal Men's Rowing staff was tough yet encouraging.

    My son had an awesome time at camp this year! The Cal Men's Rowing staff was tough yet encouraging and extremely helpful in working on my son's fundamentals and knowledge of the sport. He felt challenged and pushed beyond his limits. He made a few friends with the other rowers and developed a great rapport with the coxswains he worked with. Looking forward to next year!
