27th May 2009 - Durham University sculling camps August 2009. Full details are online at http://www.teamdurham.com/universitysport/summercamps/
With the Junior Residential Camp from 16-21 August, we are aiming to involve leading performers from the current J14, J15 and J16 age groups, and provide them with some of the training and skills they will need to prepare for National Schools and GB Junior trials during the following years.
With the Senior Performance Camp from 10-14 August, we cater for ages 17 upwards, and are looking to involve those who are interested in participating in GB Under 23 trials, the Northern Sculling Series, the Scullers Head or other Heads and Regattas in the 2009/10 season.
For those looking to scull on a more recreational basis, we offer the Senior Club Camp, also from 10-14 August, which also caters for ages 17 upwards, and offers more relaxed single sculling with shorter outings, as well as crew sculling on a number of the days.
The camps are run at our water training base at Newburn and from our land training base at Maiden Castle in Durham. Athletes are encouraged to bring their own equipment, although we have do have a number of sculling boats and blades which are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Coaches wishing to be involved in the camps are also welcome to attend and support their athletes. Any questions feel free to email John Thicknes
