Junior Varsity Training Program

This camp is for experienced high school rowers looking to improve their skills. Athletes must have at least one year of rowing experience unless cleared by a coach. 


This camp is not meant to be as rigorous as the regular season - it will be focused on closing the low-hanging fruit for athletes, and preparing them to be successful during the 2021-2022 season.

We will take time to address technical issues at a slower pace, and also develop the strength to prepare athletes to take on the training load during the regular season. Each week will have at least 2 cross-training sessions, with at least one NOT at the boathouse.


Rows during the summer will also not be work-out focused as they are during the year, but skill-focused. Without the regular time pressure to gain fitness and get faster, we can spend some time working out the fundamentals, and ingraining habits and the rowing stroke that will enable athletes to succeed ruing the regular season. We aim to row across sweep & sculling & across boat classes.

Athletes can purchase 3 / 5 / 7 week packages - and we want to make sure that you have the flexibility you need to progress in this sport, while also enjoying your summer! If additional flexibility is needed, please communicate with us and we can develop a plan that works for you.


At OARS, our focus is helping athletes develop to have longevity in the sport, and to ensure we're both developing athletic ability in the short term while promoting long-term health.


This camp is designed for OARS athletes looking to stay connected with the sport and to gain an edge for the Fall, without burning out. Our long-term athlete development model aims to ensure athletes have a healthy relationship with the sport.

For athletes who have not rowed at OARS during the school year, please reach out to to to apply for this program.
