We are pleased to announce the release of our online introduction to coxing and steering guidance available to all British Rowing members free of charge on RowHow!

http://www.rowhow.org/course/view.php?id=144

It provides an overview of the basic skills that a cox/steer should have along with some activities to test your knowledge along the way.

The topics covered in the online guidance include: 

•         The responsibilities of the cox/steer

•         Safety and risk management

•         Clothing, equipment and boats

•         Lifting, launching and landing

•         Steering and manoeuvring

•         Rowing technique

Experience on the water is essential, and going out with a coach to put your newly acquired knowledge into practice is strongly advised.

The Level 1 Certificate in Coxing/Steering (http://www.rowhow.org/course/view.php?id=102) is the next step for your development – also available free of charge!

This is designed to be run and assessed within a British Rowing affiliated club, by a British Rowing qualified coach.

Your club will provide guidance for you as you work through the award, after which you will be required to complete a practical assessment. At this time your club will assess whether you have the required competency to cox / steer a boat on your home stretch of water.

As always, we appreciate all feedback on the Education & Training we provide, so please feel free to email us with your comments: info@britishrowing.org
