Club Coaching Assistant Training

The Club Coaching Assistant provides an entry level for you to get involved in supporting rowing activities at your club


The Club Coaching Assistant training enables people to get involved in coaching and provides an entry onto the formal British Rowing Coach Education pathway. By providing more ways to get involved, the aim is to create a welcoming environment for newcomers and encourage them to participate for longer and to see rowing as a lifelong sport.

Club Coaching Assistants should be working under the direct supervision of a rowing coach (Level 2 qualified or above).

The training will help you to:

  • Identify your role and responsibilities as a Club Coaching Assistant.
  • Identify the key components in delivering a safe and inclusive session to a group of rowers.
  • Identify some of the skills required to deliver these sessions effectively.
  • Look at the key skills and technical development in rowing activities.
  • Experience rowing activities through video observation.
  • Discuss the key skills of a Club Coaching Assistant when supporting rowing sessions.
