Coach Development – Trailer Driving and Outboard Motor Maintenance

November 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm

Trailer Driving Skills

Date: Sunday November 19th, 2017
Time: 9am-10.30am
Location: UBC Boathouse, 7277 River Rd, Richmond
Cost: FREE!

This session is a chance for clubs to expand their number of trailer driving crews!

Trailer driving is a skill essential for all coaches to have in their “tool box”, however many coaches don’t get the chance to develop skills and confidence.

Facilitated by UBC Men’s Coach Mike Pearce, participants will gain valuable hands-on experience and knowledge.

Areas that will be covered include:
– Tips on loading maximum boats in minimum time
– Hitching a trailer
– Essential skills like cornering and backing a trailer
– Highway driving – thinking ahead

As this will be a hands-on session, make sure to bring your driving license.

Outboard Engine Maintenance

Date: Sunday November 19th, 2017
Time: 10.45am-12.15pm
Location: UBC Boathouse, 7277 River Rd, Richmond
Cost: FREE!

Engines are an essential but often little understood tool for all clubs and coaches, so this opportunity is not to be missed. This workshop will give coaches an overview of not only maintaining engines, but also cover best practice in engine use.

Facilitated by Mike DiNardo from Galleon Marine, participants will get an overview in common maintenance items such as:
– Changing oil
– Inspecting/changing plugs
– Cleaning fuel pump
– Also covered will be common issues like cold and hot starts, flooding the engine, setting transom angle, and more.

Every coach and club should take advantage of these sessions!
