Delivering Rowing – a training course for young people
British Rowing is launching a brand new training course, enabling young people to deliver rowing sessions under the supervision of a qualified coach.
Following changes to the UKCC Level 2, people under the age of 18 are no longer able to train as rowing coaches.
The new 16-hour training course – Delivering Rowing – is mixture of classroom-based theory and hands-on practical activities, delivered by a British Rowing Coach Educator.
The course will see young people aged 16-17 learn how to plan, deliver and assess a rowing session, conduct a risk assessment, explain proper rowing technique, and fully understand the role of a coach and session facilitator.
Applicants should have:
- Participated in a man overboard, capsize or water rescue drill which has been run through a club or school by either a qualified tutor or a UKCC Level 2 Coach (rowing or water sports-related)
- Attended as a minimum a Learn to Row Course Stage 1 & 2 / Explore Assistant Workshop or be regular rowers
- A valid British Rowing membership
More information about the course – including sessions locations and costs – will be posted on the Education & Training section of the British Rowing website.
