WELCOME - Let’s Get Better! USRowing’s 2020 Annual Convention is going virtual this December! Although all of us would rather be meeting in person, COVID-19 had other plans. No worries though. In fact, this year’s convention promises to be bigger than ever with brand new diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) training that will be available free of charge to all of our members along with our ever-popular Para/Adaptive, Coaching Education, Business of Rowing and Referee tracks. And the best part is all of this great content is available from the convenience of home!

We’ll focus on getting better across the spectrum -- improving as coaches, creating more inclusive boathouses, strengthening our organizations as we come back from COVID-19, enhancing our physical and mental well-being, and more. While 2020 has been a challenging year, this year’s Annual Convention serves as a springboard to start 2021 off stronger, healthier, wiser … and better!

Advancements in technology and neuroscience provide new insight about the brain, practice, and performance. Research on neuroplasticity also reveals that the brain continues to change through experience and learning. This interactive session will explore research on how the brain learns, cognitive load, and stress. Additionally, the session will examine neuromyths and the potential effects on mindset. Participants will engage in small groups, polling, and activities focused on optimizing athletic performance through practice, flow, and research informed strategies.
