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!

As rowing continues to grow as a sport, we look forward to including more athletes of all backgrounds in our boathouses, a wider range of teams at our regattas, and growing the USRowing referee community! Join our panel of experts, Liz Greenberger, Sarah Low, Dave Miller, and Mike Connors, as we talk about how to ensure you are giving access to all backgrounds and age ranges at your boathouse and regatta. We will then take it a step further and learn how to set up a structure that allows for everyone to succeed in the boathouse, while providing opportunities for growth in the sport as an athlete, staff member and referee.
