The Chicago Rowing Foundation offers a complete rowing summer program for teens 12-17, regardless of previous experience. You will learn the essentials of sweep rowing (one oar per person) with training on land on rowing machines and in a boat on the Chicago River.
All sessions at the Chicago Rowing Foundation Summer Camp are ideal for those looking for a low-impact, cardiovascular team sport. You will have fun learning the basics of the sport, improving your overall fitness level and meeting other teenagers from all over the Chicago area!
The camp's focus is on basic rowing skills and terms, with an emphasis on learning how to row as a crew of eight.
Sweep rowing is a team sport that requires prolonged physical exertion and highly coordinated physical endurance. Sweep rowing may not be appropriate for all rowers. CRF reserves the right to determine whether sweep rowing is a match for each CRF applicant.
CRF will have an adaptive program for teens and adults with phsyical and intellecutal disabilities. For information, contact Betsy Trevarthen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
