Coaching Courses


We offer a range of courses to our registered members. We have developed a hybrid learning approach for the delivery of our Coach Education Program courses through the use of virtual online training and real-world practical experience.

Introduction to Coaching Course

This introductory coaching course is suitable for beginner coaches and parents willing to get involved with helping in clubs. Juniors and students aged 16+ with some rowing experience, but no coaching experience, will also benefit from this course.

By the end of this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to assist club coaches both on the water and in the gym.

During this course, we cover a wide range of essential topics, including coaching methods, rowing technique, safety and welfare awareness, effective communication, and session planning.
