Advanced Coaches Series
Peak Power, injury prevention through core strength training, and rowing technique analysis are the focus for this year’s convention. Discussions on peak power production and its relationship to rowing will led by Jay T. Kearney, PhD, USOC Performance Services Team Leader. Jay T. was an Olympic paddler and, since joining the USOC, has worked very closely with rowing through research and testing. Zach Weatherford, and/or Kim Sanborn, USOC Strength and Conditioning coaches will lead the core strength program. Zach was instrumental in designing the core strength program used by the U.S. Women’s Team prior to their world record and world champion performance in 2006, and Kim Sanborn is currently working with our national teams. Technique analysis will be led by our national team coaches but also will be headed by other coaches in discussions of technique of your rowers. USRowing will be asking for short video of your rowers to illustrate problems and offer solutions. This year’s program will offer practical and useful information that can be implemented for any age or level of athlete
