Learn-to-Row Summer Camps are Underway!

LTR1 BargeBerkeley High Crew’s first Learn-to-Row Camp of Summer 2015 is in the books, with 26 campers having learned the basics of a new sport from Berkeley High coaches and current varsity student-athletes.

Campers learned the basics of crew, including rowing terminology, equipment handling and, of course, how to row, and also got to meet future Berkeley High classmates.

Berkeley High Crew is offering two more Learn-to-Row camps this summer: July 20 – 24 and August 24 – 28.  To learn more and register on-line visit our Summer Camps Page.

Learn To Row Day 2015 – FULL

Berkeley High Crew’s Spring Learn-to-Row Day on April 25 is now FULL.

Please consider signing up for a summer camp.

IMG_20130511_095517Participants will:

  • Learn the basics of rowing from Berkeley High coaches
  • Practice rowing on land on a rowing machine
  • Row on the water in our training barge
  • Meet current Berkeley High rowers and coxswains
  • Learn about the rowing team at Berkeley High School
  • Have Fun!

Light snacks will be provided, but we encourage everyone to bring a water bottle and hat (for sun protection) and to wear sunscreen.  Dress in layers and wear comfortable, athletic clothing – sweatpants or shorts are fine. (Avoid baggy, basketball-style shorts because they can get caught in the equipment.)
