What Athletes & Parents are saying

Ready Set Row

“Your program worked at giving our daughter the self tools to boost both her mental and physical abilities and to really go after what goals she has set. Breaking her 2k was a HUGE confidence booster and since she arrived home she PR'd on her 5k. She has come home with such a desire to be faster & stronger. She's walking a little taller and with more confidence! Thank you all for such a tremendous experience.”

“Coach Holly - we feel so lucky that our daughter had the opportunity to come to your camp. It seemed like the perfect program and it was more that that - she came away being a more brave and confident person, a better rower, and having new friends she hopes to have for a lifetime. The program was more than we expected, and our daughter benefited from it in so many different ways. The huge PR on her 2K was a nice bonus as well!”

“Coach Holly's RSR program did more for our daughter in 4 weeks than we ever thought possible. Not only is she a more confident and stronger rower, she came home a more resilient and balanced individual ready to take on anything. This is a great program for a rising senior.”
