elite college prep PROGRAM

College admissions are competitive. Give yourself the edge by learning how to row.

What: Learn to row in a safe, structured, community. The training is in a competitive atmosphere. This helps you achieve the fastest sprint times to share with your top universities. Athletes receive a uniform, individualized training, video analysis, college recruitment consulting, and fun in-house regattas. 

Manna Provides:

  • core regimen and programming
  • competitive atmosphere
  • college guidance
  • elite coaching and training

Why: There aren't enough high school oarsmen and women. University rowing programs are hungry for first year rowers to join their crews. A respectable sprint time on the ergometer, a.k.a. the rowing machine could open doors for a high school athlete. Try out now and don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!

Who: Everyone can join! You must own focus and discipline. Manna will help you reach your physical, mental, and spiritual heights, but the results come down to you. Rowers come in all shapes and sizes. The best have four core underlying strengths: endurance, leverage, balance, and grit.

When: The program starts March 14,  Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00-7:00pm, Wednesdays 6:00-7:00pm, and the 4th day is TBA.  

Where: Hermosa Beach Community Center, 2nd Floor.  710 Pier Ave, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.



We encourage any new rowers and their parents to commit to the 12 week Manna program.  Why? Psychologists discuss mastery as a pursuit of deliberate practice. From our experience it takes about two months, on average, to get basic rowing technique down properly. Guided by a skilled coach, mastery requires persistent training, focus, and dedicated hours. Manna's structured and proven 12 week program increases growth and maximizes results.
