Skills Development Camps

This summer, City Island Rowing is offering two skills development camps.
Athletes will row in sweep and sculling boats, large and small.
Rowers will be placed with like skilled athletes to maximize improvement 
and are welcome to sign up for both sessions.

Skills Dev Camp - July     July 7 - July 31 
includes Philly Youth regatta July 18
Skills Dev Camp - August     Aug 11 - Aug 28

Training Schedule:
M/T/Th/F  8:45 - 10:30 am
Wed 4:30 - 6:30 pm
(Advanced athletes may row with our race team 7:00 - 8:30 am )

These programs are targeted at younger athletes who have completed at least one season of rowing, 
as well as more experienced rowers who either want to try out CIR,  or who want to get in some top class coaching - but cannot commit to the full summer or Race Camp Henley.

Athletes completing our June LTR may sign up for either of the Skills Dev Camps
Athletes completing our July LTR may sign up for the August Skills Dev Camp.

Newer rowers will gain a greater understanding of connection, rhythm and ratio.
More experienced rowers will gain insight to more nuanced skills such as: 
Boat feel, change of direction and proper mental approach to training.
These skills make the difference between being regionally competitive and nationally competitive.

All rowers will receive video feedback during their time and receive a comprehensive evaluation report at the end of each camp, describing improvements made as well as offering advice on areas on which to work.

Cost of each camp includes 
instruction, CIR T shirt and race fees:
Dev Camp July $650
Dev Camp Aug $495 
(full week shorter and no regatta)
