Free Adult Rowing Clinic September 26th, 2020

Time: 8am to 12pm

Location: Tulsa Rowing Club

(click above for a map to show location)

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

There will be a practical part of the clinic where instruction will be provided to help participants identify the best drills to help fix rowing technique for either personal use or in a coaching environment.

At the end of the clinic, there will be a discussion about 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.

Participants are under no obligation to commit to coaching in our outreach programs following their participation.

Update: The Camp Is Now Full, however, we are building a wait list, so feel free to register and we will add you name to the list and contact you if a space opens up.
