What could be better than visiting a beautiful country with wonderful people for rowing and adventure. Please consider joining us for a week in Sibenik Croatia (recently featured in the Washington Post) for a rowing adventure of a lifetime. We will stay in a 15th century palace that has been converted to a luxury hotel right downtown. The rowing will be from the KRKA club with a fleet of brand new Swift singles and doubles and explorations to the National Parks, surrounding natural and cultural attractions and an afternoon to explore the City of Split! Limited to 10 rowers! Join Now! Dates are June 4-10, 2019 For Complete Schedule CLICK HERE
Yes, We do a lot of Coaching through the year but we also get out on the water to row! Coaches Jim Dietz, Mark Wilson, Ryan Worth, Jim Preston and Steve Dezwart all raced at the 2018 FISA World Masters and did great. Jim D., Steve and Mark all won medals and Jim P. and Ryan were in multiple boats with great finishes but just out of medal range this time. Highlight for Jim and Mark was a win in the F 2x.
At the Head of the Charles, Mark and Jim Dietz also combined with long time sculling friends Willie Castle and Chris Somers in a 4x. The group that got to practice only on the way to the starting line finished a solid 9th out of 36 boats and only 20 seconds from the medal position in 5th. “We are gunning for a medal in 2019!” says Bow seat Mark Wilson.

All-American is proud to be offering a Race Prep camp in Chattanooga Tennessee on the Hooch course this September 8-10, 2017. We will be rowing out of the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga boathouse. Local coach and rower Ryan Worth will join Mark Wilson for the weekend of coaching and fun both on and off the water. Highlights will include: training on the course, getting a race summery from one of the race officials that handles the start/finish line, getting to practice the course and finish line area, see yourself rowing through video review and having the race tacticians help you figure out what the best lines are along the course. Go to the Registration Page for details and how to register.
Mark Wilson, co-owner of All-American Rowing Camp, has decided to follow his passion of rowing and make AARC a full time commitment. Since 1999 both Jim Dietz and Mark have traveled in their spare time to wonderful places and met incredible people around the world. Mark has decided to leave college coaching and take his passion to the camp full time. Traveling around the country and the world to share his passion with fellow rowers and the same high quality coaches will be a great opportunity.
