TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT CAMP
Suggested skill level: 0-3, out of 10
This camp is open to all high school aged athletes; prior rowing experience is not needed. The focus is to build a strong, skill based rowing foundation. This camp will help athletes develop a basic understanding of the sport and how to move a boat by understanding and improving rowing skills. The Minnesota Rowing Staff will focus on fitness, strength, mobility, injury prevention, nutrition, and video analysis to help improve rowing stroke. The camp will be divided between erg, water, tank, land, and video analysis for the skills sessions. Coxswains will be given individual feedback and the opportunity to review recordings of their race calls.
ELITE HIGH PERFORMANCE RACING CAMP
Suggested skill level: 3-10, out of 10
This camp open to all high school aged athletes, but is geared towards experienced rowers with at least one racing season completed. This camp is ideal for rowers who would like to get a first-hand look at what it is like to train and race at the next level and experience what it is like to row at an elite Division I university. This camp is designed to cover the breadth of rowing with a focus on skill development, conditioning work, and race preparation and strategy. There will be in-depth lectures and discussions of the rowing stroke, training regimens, and racing tactics. Coxswains will be given individual feedback and the opportunity to review recordings of their race calls.

Campers are supervised 24 hours a day. The staff live in the dormitories with the campers and participate in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol, and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.
Due to University and NCAA Policies, we are not allowed to offer any transportation to and from camps. The airport closest to the Minnesota campus is Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport.
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.
If five or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $40 discount.
- To register your group online: Please have a team contact reach out directly to the USSC office at 1-800-645-3226 to receive a discount code to identify your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the coupon code during check-out.
