THREE RIVERS ROWING ASSOCIATION

Youth Summer Camps
2024

Welcome to the 2024 Youth Summer Camp Season! 

Welcome to the 2024 Summer Camp Season!  Summer is an incredible time to row in Pittsburgh.  Our rivers allow us the opportunity to work in small boats and pursue individualized training in a way that is not often possible during the school year.  Conditions in the morning are quite frequently well-suited for skill development and technical improvement.  

 

Three Rivers Rowing Association offers several different programs to allow rowers of all skill levels the opportunity to experience summer rowing in Pittsburgh. 

 

Our Summer Programming has changed a bit this year, so please take a look at the new options and contact us if you have any questions.  

 

To discover which camp is right for you, look through the camp descriptions below or contact Matt Grau at mattgrau@threeriversrowing.org.  No experience is necessary, and rowing is open to everyone!

U19 Summer Competitive and Development Rowing

This year we are combining our U19 Competitive Camp and our Technical/Sculling Development Camp into one program.  We will offer four two-week sessions throughout the summer.  Athletes are invited to do as many camps as fit their schedule!  This program is open to junior/high school athletes that are seeking a competitive, highly-technical environment.  Rowers should have one year of competitive rowing experience.  Training and racing will take place in all boat classes, though the camp will take advantage of good weather conditions to particularly focus on time in small boats.  Rowers should be adept at both sweep and sculling, or willing to learn.  Athletes will have the opportunity to race at both the 107th West Side Invitational and the Midwest Summer Sprints (additional information can be found below).  There may be additional scrimmages scheduled.  The coaching staff will come from a variety of local clubs and college programs.
