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!

In this session, the presenters will discuss how to coach your athletes, from novices to the most experienced rower, to be safe when you aren’t there.  During practice, crews can get separated from the coach and each other, issues can occur when traveling to and from regattas, and during racing accidents can happen.  After this session, you should be better prepared to coach your athletes and create a culture of safety in all aspect of rowing, even when you can’t be there.
