Course Information 

  • The Level 2 course will be a day and a half day.  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 Coach-level membership is required to access the online manual and attend the course. 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 2 certification. You do not have to obtain the safety certifications prior to the course. If you have copies, you may give them to the instructor 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 willieb@usrowing.org or (317) 450-3229.
