accelerate your rowing
YOUR BEST CHOICE IN THE NORTHWEST
speed + strength for your next season
Take on the training challenge to improve strength, endurance, mechanics, and effectiveness in every boat
Sharpen bladework and mechanics
Drawing from athletes around the region, rowers will learn methods that are foundational to the success of nationally and internationally competitive rowers. We will have a select group race at Club Nationals lining up with the fastest clubs across the country. There will also be a group of rowers heading to Spain for a rowing homestay exchange and training camp.
This is the best step for your development.
Coach Dennis and Alex have developed athletes in the northwest and set the coaching foundations for rowers to take their drive for the sport as far as they can go!
In the last U23 world championship, the coaching team of Dennis and Alex set the foundations for Sammamish Rowers Sam Halbert, Tennyson Federspiel, Peter Arata, and Eli Maesner to two golds, one bronze and one very tight race in 4th. In total, the coaching team helped to develop 11 rowers who competed at U23s and junior worlds, including 4 gold medal and 3 silver medal finishes last year.
