RSR Foundation Camp at Dublin School


RSR Foundation Camps focus on the athlete as a whole addressing technique, fitness, strength, nutrition and mental-skills training. Our athletes train on the water, in the weight-room and in the classroom. We focus on fueling the machine, learning the proper maintenance for the machine and then follow a resiliency program for the machine (mental weight-lifting). 

We row, ERG, lift weights, grocery shop & cook, and train the brain through our mental skills programming.

Program Specifics

What: A safe, supportive environment for young women to explore the sport of rowing and all the life lessons it can teach. We focus on improving the rowers' technique and address leadership, emotional management and resilience training. 

Who: Junior female rowers and coxswains who have at least one season's worth of experience sweep rowing or sculling. There are no erg requirements for this camp. High-school and young college women (age 14-20) welcome. All athletes must be able to swim 100 yards unassisted and treadwater for 10 minutes unassisted. 

How: All interested athletes register on Regatta Central. RegattaCentral registration includes the non-refundable application fee and a deposit; the remaining balance will be due directly to Dublin School. You will be contacted for the remaining balance. 

Be sure to select the correct camp and whether you are a rower or a coxswain. We will be accepting a maximum of 17 rowers and 3 coxswains to the Camp. If the camp is full- please CONTACT US to be put on the waitlist. 

Where: All athletes will stay in the boarding facilities at the Dublin School in Dublin, NH. All coaches live in the dorms with the athletes. Rowing will be held out of the brand new Dublin Boathouse. Erging, strength training, yoga and meditation will be held on campus. 

Note - the dorms do not have central air conditioning. Although it rarely gets super warm in NH, you may want to bring a fan. 

When: August 13-18, 2018. 

All athletes should plan to arrive at Dublin School the first day between 11-1:30pm and be ready to row by 2pm. Athletes will depart by 12pm on the last day. The closest airport is the Manchester-Boston (MHT) and athletes can use Adventure Limousine or Thomas Charters to arrange transportation to the school. If athletes will be driving to New Hampshire with parents and want to stay overnight in the area, Keene New Hampshire is a good option to look for a hotel. 

Cost: $1395. Camp fees include a RSR T-shirt, RSR Training Journal and RSR Mental-Skills Manual. High School athletes will also have the option to attend a College Recruiting session. 

Note - athletes must be USRowing Championship members. Please be sure your membership is up to date and you have the USRowing waiver on file with your Championship membership.
