Celebration of Junior Coaches U19 Wash-Up Meeting & Kitchin Society, St. Paul’s School

Following the conclusion of this year’s GB U19 rowing season, the annual wash up meeting celebrates the achievements of our U19 rowers and their coaches.

The wash up meeting is an opportunity for coaches of U19 rowers to come together and share the learnings from the year with the U19 GB Pathway Team. Later in the day, the Kitchin Society meets to provide a forum to debate the direction of school and junior rowing and the support required to grow this area of our sport.

7.30pm-8.30pm: Changing Young Lives Through Coaching, Online

Good coaches can do so much more than help to make boats move faster! We’ve seen how much young people can develop their life skills through taking part in rowing but we now have strong academic findings to support this, just one year into a study of a Youth Rowing Programme. Trainee Sport and Exercise Psychologist Scott Whitfield will discuss the findings, and in particular just how important the role of the coach is in helping young people recognise how they are developing their life skills through rowing. This knowledge can be used to inform your own rowing sessions and coaching practices moving forward. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout the session.

5.30pm-8.30pm: University Coaching Assistant, Online

The University Coaching Assistant provides more entry levels for you to get involved in supporting rowing activities at your university clubs. The University Coaching Assistant training came about as a result of university rowing clubs identifying that despite a lot of people delivering activity in university clubs, there needed to be a more effective way of succession planning between year groups to ensure that there were enough students with some training in delivering activity year on year. This training is being offered FREE for a limited time!
