Leave a comment

This is a Leander sponsored training camp for LBC athletes. A number of you are members so this should be of interest.

Leander’s spring training camp is focused on technical and physical development of competitive rowers ranging from novice to national team. Rowers are grouped together based on experience level and ability then taken for training sessions which suit their skill set.

Camp includes an introduction to rigging, training methodology and video work.

Leander athletes will be provided with sculling shells in the form of quads, doubles and singles. Sweep boats may be provided if a request is submitted to Jake Thomasen. Athletes from other clubs are responsible for bringing their own equipment to Leander to load on the trailer at least three days prior to departure.

Breakfast and Lunch are not provided as part of the trip. Athletes will be given opportunities to do grocery trips to a nearby store to stock up on easy meal options. Dinner will be booked through the host facility and included in the cost of the trip.

Payments are non-refundable due to the payments to our lodging facility and rental company being non-refundable.
