The CRCA Annual Coaches Conference was established in 2007. It began as a small gathering of coaches from our many diverse backgrounds for two days of presentations and discussions with top level Collegiate and International Coaches was driven by the suggestions of our members. Meeting the needs of all levels of coaches through the opportunity for open discussion, this Conference has quickly become a favorite among attendees. In previous years, the CRCA Conference also featured a pre-conference for Assistant Coaches which focused on the strategies for success as an assistant, as well as professional development. The CRCA Conference is now held in conjunction with the USRowing Convention every year in December.
Past Conferences have welcomed Tom Terhaar, Jan Harville, Dave O’Neill, Wendy Davis, Justin Moore, Kevin Sauer, Bebe Bryans, Sandra Chu Steve Myrland, Sarah Lopez, Joe Setting, Jane LaRiviere, Steve Pritzker, Bebe Bryans, Madeline Davis, Yasmin Farooq, Justin Price, and Lori Dauphiny. Key note speakers have shared their thoughts on the Elements of a successful program, recruiting, training, communication/leadership skills, personal development and more.
