May 22, 2009

BERKELEY - California rowers Lou Kinder and Shay Seager were invited to USRowing's 2009 Women's National Team Pre-Elite Camp this summer, the organization announced on Friday. The camp, whose dates have yet to be announced, will be held at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. Kinder, a senior co-captain, and Seager, a junior, are currently preparing to compete in the NCAA Women's Rowing Championships at Cooper River Park in Cherry Hill, N.J. Kinder is a member of Cal's varsity 8+, which is ranked No. 2 in the nation. Seager rows on the Bears' second varsity 8+.

The camp is focused on developing athletes who have the potential to contribute to future Under 23 and Senior National Teams. The goals of this camp are to introduce and develop sculling, improve technique focusing on small boats, gain fitness and increase strength-to-weight ratio, and acquire skills necessary to compete at the elite level. Athletes will train intensely with two to three practices per day, and they will have opportunities to race throughout the summer.
