Coach-Con 2018 Applications Open!

We are proud to announce that we are accepting applications for the sixth annual Coach-Con conference June 11-13th in Everett, WA. The conference is geared towards collegiate assistant rowing coaches who are serious about becoming head coaches.

The idea for Coach-Con came from a gap in knowledge that we saw in our dealings with both head coaches and assistant coaches. When the conference started, it was billed as ‘the things you wanted to know, but were too afraid to ask’. As coaches, we are expected to not just know, but to be experts on an incredible diversity of topics. From the technical aspects of rowing, to physiology and training programs, to composites repair, small engine maintenance, long haul driving and trailer driving skills, leadership, mentoring, recruiting…. when you tease it all out, it is overwhelming!!

We realized we were uniquely positioned to fill some of these gaps right here at our shop. In particular, elements of boat repair, best practice in boat maintenance, rigging, trailer driving and loading, understanding the differences in boat design, and the physics of rowing are topics in which we are experts. You will walk away from the conference feeling much better equipped in all these areas.

Besides the knowledge we are able to share, a major benefit of the two-and-a-half-day conference is simply being able to spend quality time with coaching peers from around the country. We strive to select a highly motivated and diverse group of candidates from a variety of colligate rowing programs.

12 candidates are selected from applicants around the country. Selection is competitive. Application deadline is May 1, 2018, and candidates will be announced May 7th.
