Middle-school Rowing Session, Fall 2022

Want to try something new this fall? Are you currently in 6th – 8th grade?  If so, Wyandotte Boat Club will teach you how to row during this fall’s Middle-School Rowing Session!

No rowing experience is needed, the coaching staff will teach new rowers starting with the basics. But if you have experience from a prior rowing camp, the coaches will group the experienced rowers so you can continue to develop your skills.

There are many benefits to rowing, one of the country’s fastest growing high school and collegiate sports! The Wyandotte Boat Club Rowing Camp provides a safe and fun opportunity to learn how to row.

During the four week session, rowers will learn proper rowing technique in sweep rowing (one oar for both hands) and sculling (two oars, one for each hand). Rowers will also learn basic training and racing techniques. They will learn the basics using Concept2 Indoor Rowers and indoor tanks and spend most of the time developing their skills while rowing on the Detroit River.

In addition to learning how to row, campers will learn the importance of dedication, hard work, teamwork as well as lifelong health and wellness.
