SERC Summer Camp!

2017-Serc-Summer Camp- full page

Eugene’s high school rowing team, SERC, is hosting two weeks of summer rowing camps at Dexter Lake, July 24-28 and July 31-August 4, for any area students entering 8th-12th grade. No experience needed. Summer’s a great time to try something new! New rowers who complete both weeks have the option to race in Seattle the weekend of the 4th with the team, included in the cost of the camp. Daily bus transportation is provided between Dexter and South Eugene HS. The team will take on new members in the late summer/early fall to participate in year long training and fall/spring racing. The first two weeks of Fall will be a ‘trial period’ where new athletes can try the sport for free before deciding. Watch our Facebook page and website for details, or contact Head Coach Spencer at headcoach@southeugenerowingclub.org with questions.
