In the RCA Coach stream, coaches are guided through course curriculum and practical exercises focused on coaching beginner and intermediate rowers in their first years of competition.

The knowledge, skills, experience, behaviour and attitude of an RCA Coach directly contribute to:

  1. Skill acquisition and development / proper rowing technique
  2. Athlete’s preparation and readiness for competition
  3. Safety of the athlete
  4. Athlete’s level of enjoyment
  5. Athlete’s level of confidence
  6. Athlete’s identification with the sport of rowing and loyalty to the sport in the long-term

Getting athletes off on the right foot by guiding them through stage-by-stage progressions in technical, tactical, psychological, physical and lifestyle skills is critical to their long-term participation in the sport, be in junior, young adult, or masters rowers.
