Upcoming Camp: June 23 – July 14, 2013
Southeast Junior Development Camp (SEJ) is a co-ed, competitive, and intensive three–week summer rowing program for junior level athletes operating out of Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
SEJ is geared for athletes that are just under the requirements of the USRowing Jr. development system or might have aged and want to prepare for college. The Southeast Junior Development Camp is not a USRowing Junior training center, and does not guarantee a spot future spot on the Junior National Team. However, Many of the SEJ participants have received an national team invitation the following year.
- unforgettable three-week intense training program for dedicated athletes that are looking for the next level of rowing conditioning and development
- specifically designed to be a challenging and rewarding experience to harness the athlete’s rowing potential and to foster a lifetime love for the sport of rowing
SEJ athletes will be immersed into a rigorous, intensive and competitive two weeks training program under the guidance of the region’s top coaches. Focusing on all aspects of rowing necessary to prepare athletes for competition including blade work, body mechanics, power application, strength and conditioning, flexibility, mental training, as well as nutrition.
Athletes will experience up to four training and technical sessions per day using weight training and core strength techniques as well as race strategy on the ergometer and on the water. The camp takes into count that each of the athletes home programs uses different technique. SEJ does not try to change your stroke to a unique style, instead opting for a “vanilla style” that all athletes can learn quickly to compete within two weeks. All athletes will participate in a regatta at the close of camp, the US Rowing Club Nationals in Camden, New Jersey.
