Rowing BC has committed to offering innovative professional development opportunities, in addition to offering NCCP Coach Education. This includes offering clinics and workshops or relevant topics, and providing support to coaches who want to learn in an out-of-the-ordinary environment.

Coach Development Workshops

Rowing BC Para Coach and Coach Coordinator, Martin George, designs a series of professional development workshops for coaches each year. These workshops are free of charge and are included as a value-added component of being an active coach in the BC rowing community. Many of these workshops are available for NCCP credit to coaches looking for NCCP points to maintain their certification. A full listing of upcoming Coach Development Workshops can be found in the side-bar to the right, or in the Rowing BC Events Calendar.

If there is a topic you would be interested in having as a Coach Development Workshop that is not yet included, contact Martin George with your suggestion and we will do our best to have it included in the future.

2019 Professional Development Sessions

Dealing with Conflict in Rowing (Victoria) 
Date: July 6th
Location: Royal Roads University, Victoria 
Facilitators: Patricia Galaczy

This session will be focused on building a solid foundation for conflict resolution, providing participants with a common language and toolkit for dealing with difficult people. Sessions will provide an experiential learning opportunity for practice and application of tools and skills introduced. Sessions will be based on activities and application of knowledge and skills that require all participants to engage. All activities will be applicable to the specific culture of Rowing BC and enable participants to explore how they can translate what they learn into a ‘real life’ context.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be equipped with strategies and skills to minimize and diffuse tense situations with difficult people, to avoid the escalation of conflict and to engage more strongly in problem solving and collaboration. Participants will have a common language and toolkit that can be used across the organization, enabling Rowing BC’s members to more effectively deal with difficult people and ultimately, make a difference in dealing with conflict more constructively.
