Summer Season


East Tennessee Rowing's Summer season starts June 4th and runs through July 28th. This is an excellent opportunity for youth that want to learn to row as part of our 5 Day Novice Summer Camps or athletes seeking to take it to the next level in our Summer Season on Fort Loudoun Lake.

Summer Conditioning - Athletes who participate in this season should be prepared to pursue a high performance two-a-day training schedule in a competitive environment. We focus on these seven unique training disciplines: strength/conditioning; mental conditioning; nutrition; race preparation; ergometer performance; athletic body management and boat moving skills.
