After taking this workshop, instructors/coaches will be equipped with lesson plans, appropriate drills, and will know how to better set up equipment to ensure a comfortable and injury-free rowing experience.

The RCA Learn to Row Coach workshop includes classroom curriculum facilitated by a trained NCCP Learning Facilitator, as well as practical experience, in the following areas:
