Our 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. As part of this fresh approach to coach education, we are reviewing course content as well as updating and upgrading presentations in line with Sport Ireland Coaching best practices.

Introduction to Coaching Course

This introductory coaching course is suitable for beginner coaches and parents willing to get involved with helping in the club. Also juniors and students aged 16+ with some rowing experience, but no coaching experience, will benefit from this course. At the end of this course you will be able to assist club coaches on the water and in the gym.

On the course we introduce coaching methods, rowing technique, safety and welfare awareness, communication and session planning. The cost for the course is €80.

Level 1 Coaching Course

We have finalized the delivery of our Level 1 course. It will cover the same syllabus as before but delivered in a new fresh way to take advantage of online learning.

Over the duration of the course you will have the opportunity to learn about coaching best practices to enable you to support and develop rowing talent both on and off the water. This is the second step on the Rowing Ireland ‘Coaching Pathway’ and will certify you to become a Level 1 Coach in your club. Successful completion of this course will typically enable you to coach Junior 12 to Junior 18 athletes and adults from novice to intermediate grades.

With over 27 hours of learning in total between online lessons and practical sessions covering S&C, rigging and coaching practice, the course cost of €320 represents excellent value.
