Coach Certification Requirements

Row Ontario’s Coach Certification Policy, updated March 2023, requires that “Only coaches compliant with RCA Every Coach Certified will be permitted to coach at Member Clubs.” The policy reflects Row Ontario’s commitment to ensuring every athlete has a coach that has completed sport-specific training, as well as safety and ethics training.

Coach Definition – Anyone with an ongoing relationship to rowing participants and/or athletes at any level of rowing where the goal is development through providing instruction and/or training focused on rowing. Development and training can include any combination of technical, physiological, psychological, or tactical areas.
