Where we will row at RSR Foundation Camp at Pine Crest School.

Ready Set Row Foundation Camps are for any athletes (male and female) who want additional experience or focused coaching on a foundational aspect of the sport:

  • On the water and erg technique,

  • Physical fitness and strength,

  • Nutrition and fueling for performance,

  • Mental-skills training for resilience, and

  • Fun in fitness!

Our camp focuses on the whole athlete and all aspects of being a strong, fit and confident young athlete. We will coach PHYSICAL Fitness, TECHNICAL Fitness, AND MENTAL Fitness. We 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). Our athletes range in experience from just one season to several years, but they all have a strong desire to improve and grow.

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