ROWONTARIO is excited to announce the launch of a new program for our membership. We recognize that there are many coaches and athletes in Ontario who would benefit from the opportunity to collaborate with one another, but due to geographical locations, are unable to readily access these networks. In response to this, ROWONTARIO is implementing a new program aimed to develop a Remote Coaching Network. This network will be primarily based online with the use of coaching to video, webinars, and tailored workshops, but will also include dryland and on-water training camps for participants. ROWONTARIO has selected qualified coaches as specialized advisors in the areas of technology, coaching and training. Along with regional coaches, who will act as mentors to participants within the program, these advisors will work as mentors and resources for all participants across the province.
To make this project a success, ROWONTARIO will be looking to our rowing community to identify participants in two categories. ROWONTARIO is looking for Developing Coaches (DCs) as well as Club Lead Athletes (CLAs) to apply and participate in the Remote Coaching Network. Applications close January 31st, 2018.
Funding for this program has been made available by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport through the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund.
