RV Course "Coaching the Cox"
21 October 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
RV remains committed to providing professional development to the coaches of Victoria. We are, therefore, pleased to announce the second coaches’ seminar – Coaching the Cox for Tuesday, October 21 at 7pm-9pm. (It is to be held at one of the Boathouse Drive rowing clubs in the city.) Fifty places have been reserved for club and school coaches. Expressions of interest are now open on a first come, first served basis. The seminar will be offered by Rowing Victoria free of charge and is timed to coincide with the beginning of the season selections. Please reply to this email to reserve your place.
The seminar will chiefly be delivered by current and past National and State coxswains.
The cox forms that vital link between coach and rowers. It is a unique position: both assistant coach and crewmember. The cox is the coach’s voice in the boat, the interpreter of the coach’s words, the spruiker of the coach’s message. The cox is a sensitive instrument that is finely tuned and calibrated by the coach to provide real-time accurate feedback. This seminar will allow the coach to ‘calibrate’ their cox to achieve crew success.
Please email RV Club Development Coordinator, Andrew O’Brien to register interest.
