Winter Training Trip

This year our winter training trips takes us to Tampa Florida!
As before we will be renting a huge, waterfront  house for the team to stay in. We will row 2-3 times per day on the Manatee River, as well as having a fun excursion or two. Did anyone say Disney? A winter training trip helps to provide a focus to winter training, is a welcome relief from the ergs and the gym, and most importantly helps to ensure that we hit the spring season running... ESPECIALLY our San Diego Crew Classic bound athletes!!

We will spend an afternoon session on the world famous Nathan Benderson course, Sarasota. The venue for the Youth National Championships in 2017, as well as the World Rowing Championships. What an awesome opportunity to "touch the dream" and remind our varsity rowers what they are training toward.

The experience should also be  especially inspirational to our younger rowers.

We will also take some excursions to nearby Siesta Beach - perennially voted a top 10 USA beach.

Staying in a home provides a unique opportunity to foster team spirit throughout the club.  Athletes will take it in turns to prepare and clean up all meals, under the guidance of our parent chaperones. All in all a tremendous experience.

Make sure that you do not miss out, reserve your place online now. A deposit of $200 is required to save your spot, the final fee will depend on exactly how many athletes attend, though we expect the fee to be approximately $495.00 plus airfare.
