An Introduction to High School Rowing


Padre Rowing Camp is an introduction to competitive high school sweep rowing designed for prospective student-athletes with little or no experience in the sport. Campers will be introduced to both technical and physical elements of the sport, beginning on the indoor rowing machine and progressing to 8-man shells on the water.   Specifics include:

  • An introduction to the Concept2 Ergometer – the primary training tool for rowing
  • Physical and technical elements of the rowing stroke
  • Fitness for rowing – leg strength, flexibility, endurance
  • Basic safety and boat handling – carrying and launching shells
  • Technical instruction for sweep rowing in 8-man shells with coxswains
  • Competitive racing on the water

All activities will take place at our boathouse (Bair Island Aquatic Center) on the Port of Redwood City under the guidance of the Serra High School coaching staff. Click the links at the top of the page to learn more about Padre Rowing Camp and register today!
