The clinic will be run by 1992 Great Britain Junior National Team Member, Division I Athlete, USRowing Level III Coach, Neil Bergenroth.

Bergenroth has led the Tulsa Youth Rowing Association to success and growth on a National and International Stage and brings 30 years of experience in the sport, and now specializes in coaching professional development and various rowing outreach projects in the Tulsa community.

The clinic is free and will start at 8 am and conclude at 12 pm. The primary goal of the clinic is to teach rowing fundamentals that help improve technique and performance on the Concept2 rowing machine.

This clinic will observe COVID protocols. The rowing machines will be placed 10 to 12 feet apart, participants will need to pass a temperature check and all machines will be wiped down before and after the event.  

At the end of the clinic, there will be a discussion about our rowing programs for adults, youth, and our RowingSTEM outreach initiatives, and we ask that in return for the free instruction, you stay for this discussion. Our mission is to help make rowing a more inclusive and accessible sport in Tulsa. In addition, our STEM curriculum provides a framework to help students learn science along with developing healthy lifestyles.
