Summer Camps

The Summer continues for The 9th Seat in 2014!

Week 1 Campers

Mary Whipple Coxswain Leadership Camp

Now in its second year, the Mary Whipple Coxswain Leadership Camp is ready to ramp up another exciting summer just for coxswains.  My goal is the same which is to create the best, most knowledgeable, and enjoyable summer camp experience where coxswains are the main focus.  This is the kind of summer camp that I would have wanted to attend when I was in high school.  This is going to be your chance as a coxswain to learn about the sport of rowing on your terms.

Mwhip+ Rowing Leadership Camp at the University of Washington

The University of Washington’s Director of Rowing, Bob Ernst, brought me an opportunity to expand my coxswain camp… to rowers. This means this summer I’m offering a rowing camp for girls at the University of Washington.  The camp will be available to high school girls wanting to learn from the best and experience a week in the life of a collegiate rower.  One of my dreams has been to be a collegiate division I coach so rowers can expect a high level of intensity that I’ve been used to while being on successful collegiate, National, and Olympic teams.  Fast teams usually involve great leaders.  This camp will also focus on giving the campers strong leadership skills to take back to their team to help make a more unified team.

Coxswains wanting to attend this camp will have to qualify by attending the Mary Whipple Coxswain Leadership Camp the previous summer. 5 coxswains will be chosen to attend.  Send a resume and cover letter stating your goals for coxing and how has coxing changed your perspective on life and leadership.  Please reach out to me with any questions by scrolling up and clicking the “Ask” button.

What Coxswains can expect:

  • Listen to and share race tapes with fellow coxswains
  • Be athletic and competitive
  • Learn to communicate better
  • Learn to row
  • Master the art of docking
  • Steering: How to take turns and maneuverability
  • Better situational awareness
  • Be a better leader and teammate
  • College recruiting advice from the Rower’s Edge

Come prepared to learn outside of the coxswain seat.  There are many skills to practice that will better prepare you to make the best decisions while on the water. It is my belief that the best coxswains are the ones who want to be known as a teammate first, an athlete second and a coxswain third.  There are nine seats in an 8+ that combine into one in order to make that boat as fast as it can be.  This camp will help you be that 9th seat who makes a difference in boat speed.

What Rowers can expect:

  • Being exposed to different technical focuses
  • Handling college level land workouts
  • Learning a new psychology of racing
  • Be a better leader and teammate
  • College recruiting advice from the Rower’s Edge 

Three boats across competitive action will be the best memories from this camp.  26 rowers and five coxswains will have the chance to train their minds and bodies to become better athletes,teammates, and leaders.

Week 2 campers

Both the Mary Whipple Coxswain Leadership Camp and the Mwhip+ Rowing Leadership Camp will take place in Seattle at the University of Washington’s Conibear Shellhouse.  Campers will get a glimpse of what it is like to train in a Division I athletics facility.

Housing

Campers will be staying on the University of Washington’s Campus either in Haggett Hall or McCarty Hall. Meals which are included within the camp fee will take place in McMahon Hall’s dinning facility, The 8. There will be camp staff supervision at all times.  Summer temperatures for the Pacific Northwest are usually in the upper 70′s so heat shouldn’t be a problem. Fans will be available for each athlete if they need their rooms cooler at night.  Bedding and towels are included.
