Tank Training Days

In addition to the training at The Y, there will be three (3) optional Tank Training Days.  The indoor tank training facility at Washington College attempts to mimic the conditions athletes face on the open water.  Rowing tanks are primarily used for off-season rowing, muscle specific conditioning and technique training.  Rowing tanks allow basic technique to be taught to novices in a safe environment and enables coaches to work on the technique of more experienced athletes.
