Guest Coaching

Guest Coaching is an avenue through which rowing organizations can access additional coaching resources for one-off or repeating events. This is an opportunity to bring in a coach to the training environment who has different skill sets or experience than the regular coaches, or to temporarily fill a coaching gap that exists in the organization. In most instances, the guest coach will be visiting from their regular coaching duties at another organization, but in some cases may be able to expand into taking on additional responsibilities beyond the arranged guest coaching sessions.
