Brighton Rowing Club: The Brighton Rowing Club (BRC) is welcoming boys and girls in grades 7-12 to join a vibrant and dynamic team sport. Rowing is a total body workout that builds endurance, strength, balance, mental discipline, and teamwork. It has a very low risk of injury. Have you seen people rowing on the Genesee River or the Erie Canal and wanted to do that too? Now is your chance to learn how to row, strengthen your body, work together with your teammates, gain leadership skills, and represent Brighton in regional competitions (regatta). BRC is offering Summer Learn to Row Camps to novice athletes that teach rowing techniques and quickly progress to rowing on the water. No rowing/boating experience is necessary, but participants must be able to swim. Camps and seasonal training sessions take place at the Genesee Waterways Center Boathouse in Genesee Valley Park, near the U of R Campus. Camps are from 9 to 11 a.m. July 26 to 31 and Aug. 9 to 13.
