Week 3 (June 15, 16, 18)

Great job last week! Lots of great improvement in steering, docking, and body position. This week, I’d like for us to focus on two things: being quick on the dock and purposeful with our catches. I also heard several of you asking for information on boat handling commands… I recorded a quick audio clip for you to listen to and review. ~Julie

1. Rowing Visualization

2. Technique Videos (Catch)

3. Audio of Commands


Week 1 (June 2 + 3)

Welcome to the beautiful water at Horsetooth and the sport of rowing!

This week, we will be meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday rather than our regular T/Th schedule. I am heading to Bellingham, WA for a sculling clinic… I promise to bring back lots of great tips!

Lots of learning below- I hope you’ll take advantage of the opportunity to watch and learn. Comment below if you have questions.  ~Julie


Present: Kathy, Ingrid.

1. Rowing Visualization

Please take a few moments to watch the rowing visualization video below 5 times. Each time, focus on something different. What happens to the legs during the rowing stroke? Arms? Elbows? Head? Back? Taking this time to visualize what the stroke looks like will help you tremendously in the boat.

2. Weekly Playlist

This playlist has some techniques and terms that we’ll be using our first week out. This will be a regular format for us- example, technique playlist, and then we will add in video review of ourselves the next section.

3. Novice Initial Survey

This survey will just help me to help you…. let’s plan to stay guts up, dry, healthy, and happy, shall we?
