British Rowing Coaching Conference, 21 Jan.

British Rowing Coaching Conference.

There is a strong line up of GB Coaches from all squads and groups who will be discussing a host of subjects which will be interesting for coaches across all types of athletes of any age.

Some of those in the line up include Nick Baker and La wrence Whiteley from the Paralympic Squad talking about their experiences as both coach and athlete, James Harris who coached the Women's Eight at Rio talking about his experiences of integrating rowers of different abilities into one boat (for university coaches, prior to coaching for GB, James spent a lot of time coaching university crews at a variety of levels and improving the performance of many of the crews he worked with so his insight into developing crews is huge).

Further details can be found on the British Rowing website.
