The British Rowing Conference was last weekend and there were a lot of comments  on Facebook about where members saw opportunities for improvement.

These included:

  • How much support BR is going to give to the ever increasing ‘traditional rowing’ fraternity all around the country (not just West Country gig racing)

  • What would be good is if someone would publish a fools’ guide to status and regatta events

  • A word please for club rowing. Not just the endless elite campaign . Local regattas need support. Old style points system needed

  • Or hear of any more surprising innovations like RO

  • What competition can we have for 16-18 yr olds either new to the sport who who can’t train 12 times a week?

  • What do BR do to recognise the volunteer coaches paying out of their own pocket to support athletes at elite level?

  • How can we make coach education more accessible?

  • what are we doing to support Umpires – without whom we can’t race but who even have to buy their own coffee at some events.

  • How do we keep parents interested for non-elite Juniors?

  • Apart from Coach of the Year, how do we support and thank Coaches, particularly volunteers?

  • Can we have visibility of what events have entries at Regattas and Heads (not from whom – but a way to prevent disappointment especially for trailer drivers!).

The good news is that RowingChat next month is with Annamarie Phelps, Chairman of British Rowing and so we can put all your questions to her direct.
