The Devon Boathouse offers advanced technology and training resources for both Oklahoma City University collegiate and OKC National High Performance Center athletes, and can also be accessed by those with a RIVERSPORT Membership.
Dynamic Propulsion Rowing Tank
The world’s first dynamic propulsion rowing tank, the Stillwater Design tank provides both moving water and – a first – moving rowing stations. Accommodating both sweep and sculling for up to eight athletes, the tank includes a camera system to project side profile views of the athletes’ rowing technique onto the wall facing the rowers. The projection technology can also be used to simulate racing at a variety of venues. (First floor)
High Altitude Training Chamber
The world leader in altitude training technology, Colorado Altitude Training has designed a system for the Devon Boathouse that accommodate four athletes on rowing machines, bikes, and/or treadmills training at up to 12,000 feet. Altitude training has been demonstrated to improve strength, power and endurance resulting in greater speed, less fatigue and improved recovery. (Second floor)
