Masters Coaching offers opportunities for rowers to improve their technique, receive positive individual coaching, gain confidence as well as tools to build on success, in a safe and fun environment.
Masters Coaching provides a model for the very best of competitive rowing. Masters Coaching endeavors to provide a nurturing culture and climate that encourages and empowers each athlete to be the best she can be - as an individual rower as well as a team member. The strength of Masters Coaching is in its rowers; and while the logical outcome and goal of Masters Coaching is winning, we also strive for belief in self and trust in teammates.
What is Masters Coaching?
Masters Coaching runs sweep rowing clinics throughout the year. These clinics are three and four-day intensive experiences. Rowers row two times per day, with video review of the morning practice between sessions. Each session focuses on a different aspect of the stroke, or how the crew works together. These clinics are hosted by rowing clubs all across the country.
When Mayrene coached at MIT, she encouraged her athletes to learn from as many sources as possible. She thought this not only improved the individual athlete, but the ideas, skills and drills the athlete brought back and shared with the rest of the team were priceless.
Mayrene makes it clear to the participants that what they learn at the clinics is simply another way of looking at the rowing stroke. She reinforces when you go back to your club, you row the way your coach wants you to row, with new information and experience.
Our rowers have earned a reputation for success on race courses around the world. Masters Coaching races every year at Masters Nationals and has also raced in regattas such as the Head of the Charles, Head of the Hooch, Head of the Ohio, Head of the Welland, The British Henley, and the San Diego Crew Classic. We are looking forward to Masters Nationals in Oak Ridge, TN in August 2017 on one of our favorite courses!
