  • Learn to Row Camp

    Coached by Will Forteith, Head Crew Coach at The Hockaday School.

    Hockaday and the Dallas Rowing Club are partnering this summer to offer two-week, learn-to-row camps for 7th and 8th grade students at Bachman Lake. The camp will teach sculling (rowing with two oars as opposed to simple sweeping with one oar).  Campers will spend most of the first week in single sculls (one-person boats) and will move into doubles (two-person) and quads (four-person) boats in the second week.  

    Coached by Hockaday’s Head Rowing Coach and other Bachman Lake coaches, participants will receive an orientation to the Dallas Rowing Club boathouse, out of which three scholastic programs—ESD, Hockaday, and St. Mark’s—currently row as well as basic fundamentals such as boat handling, maneuvering, and staying in a traffic pattern. 

    Participants must be able to swim one complete lap of the pool using any stroke and must be able to tread water for 5 minutes.  The swim test and self-rescue exercise from a capsized boat will occur on the first day of each session in a pool. The rest of the camp will take place at Bachman Lake (weather dependent) with transportation to and from Hockaday provided.  Each session will have two coaches and a counselor and is limited to 10 participants. Please contact Will Forteith, Hockaday’s Head Rowing Coach, with questions.

    A parent or guardian will be required to sign the online Dallas Rowing Club waiver for each camper, which can be accessed at
