The Learn to Row Camps are for Middle School rowers of all abilities and for High School athletes who have never rowed before. If you have any questions about which camp to attend, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our Summer Programs are open to athletes outside the Oakland Strokes school year programs.

2019 SUMMER RACING CAMP
The Oakland Strokes are pleased to announce our 2019 Men’s and Women’s Summer Rowing Camps for all experienced High School athletes. This camp will be a positive, learning experience that will jumpstart your rowing and give you the tools to continue improving at rowing in the year to come.
This camp is open to all High School aged athletes from the bay area and beyond. We do not offer boarding, but if you can make it to the boathouse every morning then you are welcomed to attend.
The Varsity Summer Rowing Camps will be focused on athlete development, including improving technical proficiency, strength and conditioning, mental training, and race preparation. You will be rowing in a competitive and environment with great athletes and professional coaches. Athletes will row twice a day with a break in between to stretch, watch training videos, work one on one on rowing machines, and refuel.
Athletes will be selected from this camp to compete at the US Rowing National Championships (formerly Club Nationals) July 9th - 14th on Lake Harsha near Cincinnati, OH.
Camp Dates: June 10th thru July 5th
Weekly Schedule: Monday thru Friday 8:00am to 12:30pm
Location: Tidewater Aquatic Center, Oakland, CA
We will hold an end of camp regatta on July 6th. Parents are encouraged to attend and see what your athletes have learned from the camp. Those campers continuing to the National Championship will train through the event, returning home on or around July 14th.
Program Cost: $1750
Note: The trip to Club Nationals Trip will be in addition to the cost of the camp. The travel costs are still to be determined.
This camp is open to any and all rowers with at least one year of High School rowing experience. Rowers from teams outside of the Oakland Strokes are encouraged to attend.
We do not provide housing or transportation for out-of-town students.
Students will bring their own snacks.
Competing at the National Championships, while strongly encouraged, is not mandatory. If you do not want to be included in the regatta selection, please let the coach know as soon as possible.
A racing unisuit will be included in the cost of the camp and will be provided to all rowers regardless of their participation at the National Championships. Rowers should indicate their size during registration.
