Coaching Certification Information for 2017

The USRowing Level 2 Coaching Education program is very comprehensive and requires the coach to understand and demonstrate coaching principles, like creating a simple training program and teaching rowing technique on an erg. The information in the manual is based on what our top high school, college and national team coaches use every day to produce fast crews. Any coach who completes the course will have a solid base of information to coach a team that is competing at the high school, college or club program level. The course is the foundation for everyone with aspirations of being a good coach. There are a lot of intangibles in coaching; it requires some ³art² and the combination of this information along with your desire to be a good coach will determine what kind of coach you become. It is impossible to show up at the clinic not having read the material and still pass the test. The coaching candidates will have to read the entire manual, watch the videos we provide on our YouTube channel and complete the “class activities” prior to the clinic. Therefore, we urge coaches to give themselves a handful of full evenings to understand the material. Please note: we close clinic registration three weeks prior to the clinic date. Coaches will need all of that time to read the manual and do the class activities required prior to attending the clinic. Please see our web page for more information and current listings- http://www.usrowing.org/coaching-clinic-overview/ The actual registration takes place at www.regattacentral.com under “camps and clinics”. https://www.regattacentral.com/clubs/?org_id=2248 We hope your coaches who need training will take advantage of this program and take their coaching to the next level! Please let me know if you have any questions, Willie Black USRowing Coaching Education Manager Video Broadcasting Safety Committee Staff Liaison PO Box 55051 Indianapolis, IN 46205 317 450 3229 (direct) 1 800 314 4769 (office, NJ) willieb@usrowing.org Www.usrowing.org
