2019 Olympic Development Program Mini-Camp

October 12, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - October 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm EDT

USRowing Olympic Development Program Mini Camp

Saratoga Rowing Association is proud to host the USRowing 2019 Northeast Regional Mini-Camp, October 12-14th.

What is the Olympic Development Program?

USRowing’s ODP is evolving into a multi-phased approach, identifying talented, age-based athletes with the potential to grow within the system and providing them with challenging, developmentally-appropriate opportunities across the country. Over the next few years, the program will expand to all levels of national team development from U17 through the senior national team, creating an overall connection for the athletes.

ODP Regional Mini-Camps

This Fall and Winter we are offering ODP Regional Mini-Camps that will be hosted in each of USRowing’s six regions and focus on developing the mindset and skill needed for success within the Olympic system. They will also serve as ID Camps for the Youth Regional Challenge, November 20-24.

Participants in the USRowing ODP Mini-Camp program have the opportunity to develop as athletes, receive quality instruction, be exposed to regional, collegiate and national team coaches from their region. For those who attended the ODP Summer Cup/Camps, this is an opportunity to for you to apply what you have learned and take your game to the next level! For those who want to see what this ODP is all about, let’s get going!

Each ODP Mini-Camp Offers:

On-the-water instruction with a focus on technical improvements necessary for boat moving ability. Sessions in 8’s, 2-’s, 2x’s to help athletes develop better boat sense and become more well-rounded rowers.

This is an ideal camp to develop high-performance athletes who need to create a better boat sense while also providing small boat experience.

Invaluable education in nutrition, strength training, sports psychology, positive social media and SafeSport principles.
