Masters Winter Camp
January 4-7, 2018

General Camp Info

The Dolphin Masters Camp is designed for the adult sweep rower looking to significantly improve their technique and approach to successful rowing. Instruction and coaching will be geared to the experience level and talents of each master’s athlete. The camp includes two to three daily practices on the water and 1 active seminar centered on strength and mobility. Rowers and coxswains alike are video-taped, to review and evaluate their personal performance and technical execution after every rowing session.

We will utilize facilities on Jacksonville University’s campus. Notably the beautiful Neegard Rowing Center, and the Jacksonville University Strength & Conditioning Center. All sessions will be scaled accordingly for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced master’s athlete.

Keynote speakers will address the camp at lunch on Friday and Saturday. The topics will be sports psychology for the adult athlete and Nutrition for the adult athlete. The staff will also lead discussions on real time topics with their respective crews and during our camp Happy Hour at the end of each day.

Our athletes will have the option of staying in the Courtyard by Marriot or make their own residential accommodations.

The directors of the camp have well over 40 years of combined coaching experience. Coach Mike Lane has coached all over the country from high school, to masters, to collegiate athletes. Currently Lane is the director of rowing and head women’s coach. His varsity women are the fastest team in JU history, most recently winning the MAAC Conference championship each year of his tenure as well competing at the NCAA Championships. He was also named MAAC Coach of the year in 2016 & 2017. Prior to JU Lane spent 12 years at the University of Pennsylvania where he led the women’s team to the best finish dating back to 1982. Lane has also coached at MIT, Everett Rowing Association (Everett, WA), & Lake Lanier Rowing Club (Gainesville, GA).

Director Paul Bugenhagen has been the Head Coach of Hobart College for 6 years. Under his leadership Hobart Rowing has enjoyed unprecedented success and become one of the Top 20 men’s programs in the country. Coach Bugenhagen’s crews have won 6 consecutive Liberty League Championships and 6 NIRC Championships. Bugenhagen has been named the Liberty League Coach of the Year four times and the NIRC Coach of the Year twice. He has mentored 3 USA National Team members during his time at Hobart.

Prior to leading the Hobart program he was the Head Coach of Bucknell University Men’s Crew. The 2009 ACRA Mid-Atlantic Coach of the Year oversaw the development of five ACRA All-Americans. Additionally, Bugenhagen spent three summers as the head coach of the pre-elite program at the Vesper Boat Club in Philadelphia. At Vesper, he coached 8 U.S. National Champions and 10 crews to gold medals at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta. Bugenhagen also spent four summers as an assistant coach for the U.S. National Team.
