For entry level middle school and high school athletes, this is the perfect introductory program!  With a small coach to athlete ratio, your athlete will gain quality coaching & learn all the fundamentals of the sport in a safe & challenging environment.

Intermediate Training

For middle and high schoolers that already know how to row and are looking to refine their technical base.  Drills & Fitness are uniquely designed for this age group and athletes will mix fun and fitness equally! Learn-to-Row Graduates are encouraged to take their rowing to the next step with this clinic.

Competitive Training

This camp is for high schoolers looking to push their competitive abilities forward. By training along the Competitive Travel team, these rowers will gain the benefits of high level training, without the commitment of the travel team.

Travel Team

For athletes who want to take their rowing to a higher level, Summer rowing has become a requirement to do so.  Summer rowing has clear advantages over every other season of the year: flattest water, more time to dedicate to improvement, and the highest level of competition.  And no program offers a more comprehensive development & training plan than Sagamore Rowing Association!

The Competitive Travel team will provide advanced rowers with a competitive platform that will take their rowing, both on and off the water, to the next level. Our goal is to offer, every summer, all advanced rowers the opportunity to stay fit and improve their rowing skills during the off season time.

Athletes will gain new insight into rowing as they enter a new training program that is both physically and technically intensive under the supervision of experienced Junior level rowing coaches. Part of our goal also includes the recruitment of the best athletes from around Long Island as well as other locations to form a team that will compete at the USRowing Club National Championships against some of the top teams in the North America.

The program runs from June 26TH – August 5th

This program is based on selection. Athletes will be required to meet the program’s standards from the applications received. The program will be racing both U19 and U17 categories in both sculling and sweeping.

The program goal is to make the fastest boats possible and boat lineups will be made based on this goal. We are now accepting applications for the 2016 Summer Rowing Program.
