Development Camp (Mill Bay)

Rowing BC, with support from Brentwood College School Rowing, will be hosting a Development Camp at Brentwood College School August 22-25, 2019. This is an opportunity to train alongside other top performing athletes with similar performance goals.

Four camp streams will be available:

  1. BC Summer Games Preparation Stream: Intended for athletes with the goal of representing their Zone at the 2020 BC Summer Games (must be either U17 or U19 as of December 31, 2020). This stream will be coached by Rowing BC’s Coaching Coordinator and Para Coach, Martin George, and Victoria City Rowing Club Coach, Leanne Savage, with support from the coaches selected as Head and Assistant Coaches for each 2020 BC Summer Games Zone from across the province. Athletes from all Zones are encouraged to engage in this early preparation opportunity to become familiar with the race expectations of the BC Summer Games, and with the coaching staff who have been selected.
  2. Canada Summer Games Preparation Stream: Intended for athletes with the goal of representing BC at the 2021 Canada Summer Games (must be U21 as of December 31, 2021). This stream will be coached by Rowing BC’s Provincial Coach, Rob Richards, with support from RCA NextGen UVIC HUB coach, Samantha Heron. This is an opportunity to train alongside other athletes performing at a high level, and benefit from world-class coaching and facilities.
  3. University Preparation Stream: Intended for athletes wanting to freshen up before heading back to university rowing in September. This steam will be supported by RCA NextGen HUB coaches and other coaches with Olympic experience. This is an ideal preparation opportunity in the final weeks of summer for those preparing for the intense Fall university rowing season.
  4. Coxswain Development Stream: This stream is limited to the first four coxswains who apply. Coaching will be provided by RCA National Team Coxswain, Jane Gumley.

Athletes will be divided during on-water sessions based on the stream they have signed up to train with. Nutrition and Mental Performance Sessions will be provided for all streams of camp participants. These sessions will be led by experts provided by the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific (Vanessa Zoras for Nutrition, and Danielle Kabush & Geoff Hackett for Mental Performance).
