For the third year in a row, the Sacramento State women's rowing team, in partnership with the Sacramento State Aquatic Center, is offering a clinic for high school students (women only) who want to learn more about collegiate rowing. Registration is now available for the clinic, which is set for Sunday, Nov. 4.
The clinic will be open to all girls in grades 9-12 and will be tailored toward athletes with no previous rowing experience. This will be a great opportunity to find out if this rapidly growing varsity sport is a good fit for you before heading to college. The clinic will be instructed by Sacramento State head coach Mike Connors and his coaching staff, as well as student-athletes from the Sacramento State rowing team.
The clinic will take place at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center at Lake Natoma, one of the finest rowing courses in the country. There is a $50 fee for the clinic and it will be limited to the first 16 participants who register. The day's schedule is listed below. To register for the clinic, please click here. For any questions, please contact assistant coach George Jenkins at email@example.com.
