Previous workshops have included:

  • November 2017:  Rigging expert Dr. Mike Davenport took a deep-dive into effective ways to measure and adjust equipment in an intensive, one day hands-on rigging and rowing equipment clinic. The rigging clinic was designed for coaches who wanted an easier life and wanted to stack the speed cards in their favor using the format of “teach, do, feedback.”
  • June 2017: Based on the belief that Leadership + Culture = Success, the one day Leadership workshop with Jen Baker for collegiate head and assistant coaches focused specifically on coaches learning about themselves as a leader and leveraging their leadership philosophies into creating a leadership development paradigm for athletes.
