3:00-3:30 PM Expanding the Impact and Influence of rowing

Rowing BC has been developing partnerships to facilitate accessing participant groups who may not have been historically well-represented within the BC rowing community. By learning what makes an enticing invitation to try something new, and how to adapt program models and coaching approaches to meet different goals, the impact and influence of rowing across BC can be enhanced. Hear about the partnerships Rowing BC has created that may be suitable at your own local rowing organization, and the next steps for organizations who are ready to take these ideas from discussion to implementation. Please ensure your local rowing organization has at least one key leader in attendance.
