We are delighted to announce that Rowing Ireland has been shortlisted for a prestigious award in Sports Technology, in the category of ‘Best Digital Technology’ alongside world-class organisations such as Chelsea FC, PlayMoreGolf and others.

With support from Sport Ireland, we responded to the COVID 19 impact on Coach Education through the development of an online cohort-based learning program. This enabled us to transform and standardise learning materials, and leverage new technologies in digital communication and online learning to increase knowledge transfer and learning outcomes.

Throughout the pandemic, even during the lockdowns, our Coach Education program thrived. We trained more volunteer coaches, to a higher and more consistent standard. Our program was more inclusive, diverse, and engaging than ever before.

We would like to thank our digital innovation partners at Inkvine, the Sports Technology Awards group and all of the rowing community who put so much of their time and effort into transforming our Coach Education Program.
