Club Rigging Workshop

Book a Rigging Workshop at your club and support your coaches’ development. This half day workshop includes a classroom presentation to give coaches insight to the rigging measurement settings and why we change for specific crews and athletes. A three plus hour practical session will give the coaches the hands-on experience of how to measure and adjust the settings. At the conclusion of this workshop coaches will have a strong understanding of where to start and why and how to adjust to provide their crews an effectively rigged boat. Additional Costs include Travel and Accommodations if needed.
Rigging Level 1 The dimensions of span/spread, oarlock height, pitch, oar length, inboard, outboard, footstop height and angle will be reviewed including a hands-on practical session working with club equipment. Rigging Level 2 Advanced level coaches will analyze and determine rigging efficiency. The six factors, drive time, blade slip, effective stroke length, stroke position, stroke rate and ratio will be examined and correlated with targeted measurements for various boat classes

Purcerverance Boat Speed Rigging and Technique Analysis

Purcerverance - Boat Speed, Rigging & Technique Analysis provides feedback that allows you to focus on specific opportunities to increase your performance. Graphic curves of both boat speed and acceleration show an overall view of your stroke. Analysis of rigging and technique provide numerical values and highlight performance factors to identify areas to focus on for improvement.
Using video captured from a stationary camera, your rowing stroke will link technique to boat speed. Watch the video in slow motion or frame-by-frame and match the body and blade movements with the speed curve. The Analysis Sheet you receive will detail recommendations for both rigging and technique modification to improve performance. Visit the Purcerverance website https://purcerverance.ca/curves or email Mike at purcerverance@gmail.com for more information.

Remote Coaching

Purcerverance provides coaching to participants in need of feedback on their rowing technique. The Remote Coaching program utilises a team of coaches that review video submitted by the participant. The video is analyzed for both good technical movements that should be promoted and opportunities for modification to improve performance. The participant will receive a Purcerverance Technique Analysis Feedback Sheet which details the video review and provides recommendations for movement modification including suggested drills. Finally, a video conference call between the participant and the coach allows for a full discussion and provides an opportunity to share video and graphics to compete the picture of technical improvement.
For ROWERS and/or COACHES… A great opportunity for rowers without a coach or for coaches wanting to collaborate for their crew’s technical improvement. Purcerverance provides technique modification recommendations including suggested drills and an opportunity for video conferencing to discuss and view examples for improvement. Good technique is critical for performance. Contact Mike at purcerverance@gmail.com if you have questions.
