Description:

Canal Dock Intro to Rowing programs are for 8th-10th graders. No prior sculling or rowing experience is necessary! Kids will learn to scull in single shells, watch rowing videos, learn plyometric & stretching exercises, row on Concept2 ergometers, and have fun exploring the New Haven Harbor and Quinnipiac & Mill Rivers in New Haven. By the end of one week kids will become “rowers” and will have learned the basics of sculling, including: how to carry a single shell, how to launch and land from a fixed dock, turning and maneuvering techniques, and how to clean and properly care for the shells and oars.
