We are delighted to announce that Peter Shakespear will be facilitating a Talent Identification Seminar in each Province on the dates below. Don McLachlan (Rowing Ireland Lead Coach) will also support Peter on the dates below with a presentation on rowing technique.
Peter Shakespear is a graduate of the University of Western Australia, has rowed at two Olympics and coached national crews at all levels from junior to Olympic. While coaching at the Australian Institute of Sport, his work helped develop a Talent Identification (TID) system that produced a significant number of world champions for Australian women’s rowing for 15 years. He later spent six years as Performance Development Manager with the British rowing federation, where he established World Class Start, a successful program that identified and developed athletes who went onto Olympic success in 2012. Both the original Australian and the GB talent identification and development systems produced Olympic champions from athletes who were recruited from non-rowing sources.
Further details will be posted in the coming weeks but please save the date as places will be limited.

Thursday 14th November: Queen’s University, Belfast 7-9pm.
