When: September: Noon to 6p.m.
The deadline for registration is August 28th.
Registration: Register through RegattaCentral (scroll down to the “USRowing” link, then “USRowing Coaching Clinics”). Following your registration, you will be sent links to the manual and other information.
Cost: $100, pay on site with a check (made out to USRowing), VISA or MasterCard. Payment through RegattaCentral is not available.
- The Level 1 clinic is a six-hour clinic. If you are new to rowing or want to learn about the safety, teaching/learning, technique and about the equipment of rowing then the Level 1 is for you. Typically if you have rowed for four years and will be coaching a program that will be racing, Level 2 is the appropriate clinic. The Level 1 clinic is waived for experienced rowers or coaches.
- USRowing championship-level membership is required to access the online manual and attend the clinic. Coaching manuals must be read, “activities” listed in the manual completed, and other materials must be reviewed prior to the clinic. We have put the coaching manuals online and when you register you will get the link to the manuals. You will receive a paper copy when you arrive at the clinic. CPR, First Aid, Boating Safety, USOC Safe Sport Training, Mentor hours and current USRowing membership are required for Level 1 and 2 certification. You do not have to obtain the certifications prior to the clinic. If you have copies, you may give them to the clinician or you can mail or email them later to Willie Black.
Please read the information above about registration and other requirements. Contact Willie Black with any questions at email@example.com or (317) 450-3229.
