The coach tells all bout the FRCs 5 days rowing camp
On the occasion of MIMIZAN II, Stéphane DURAND coach to the French Rowing Class comments and provides professional look at the concept Rowing Camp.
FRC: What do you think of the formula Rowing Camp FRC?
SD: This formula makes sense to me. Rowing is not limited to school, recreation and competition. In France, we have too many beautiful bodies of water to limit only to these audiences.
FRC: The participants are they progressing?
SD: Undeniably. The phrase “the kilometers are the champions” is still relevant. But let people know why the boat ahead and why it is not moving, why rowing machine works and why it is not … Rowing is a technical sport and we coaches are there as conductors to identify, report and correct a multitude of details and ensure that after four days without unnecessary pressure on rowers, each finds its maximum pleasure in rowing.
