Training Facilities

The Devon Boathouse offers advanced technology and training resources for both Oklahoma City University collegiate and OKC National High Performance Center athletes in both rowing and canoe/kayak, and can also be used by Lifestyle Pass members.

Dynamic Propulsion Rowing Tank

This dynamic propulsion rowing tank provides both moving water and rowing seats that slide imitating the feel of a boat on the water. 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)
