Seat Racing can be confusing

How to use seat racing for crew selection

There are a lot of different ways to run seat racing – we even found coaches and coxswains who advocate AGAINST using it for crew selection – or only using it as a secondary method.

Many athletes have stories about getting “shafted” in a selection decision and so understanding how the process works and ways to ‘game’ the system, are key to ensure fairness – Brandy Mulligan’s article covers this.

This book gives you several viewpoints so you can make up your mind about how to run seat racing (or not).

Authors include:

  • FISA coaching manual – Crew Selection by Kris Korzeniowski
  • How to: Win a seat race By Coach Jay
  • Rules of Engagement for Seat Racing by Ted Nash
  • Rowing 101: Seat Racing by Mount Baker Junior Crew Coach
  • Rowing Seat Racing – Why Rowers Need To Be Vigilant By Brandy Mulligan
  • Stop Seat Racing – The Future of Crew Selection By Frank Biller
  • Coxing Seat Races Fairly by Rob Colburn
  • Seat Racing Coxswains By Marcus McElhenney
  • Seat Racing and Crew Selection by Valery Kleshnev

Please get in touch via the comments below if would be able to read the book (34 pages long) and write a short review on its usefulness.

We would like 3 reviewers:

  • An athlete
  • A Coach
  • A Coxswain

Please tell us which one you represent when you apply!

Thanks in advance.

    Happy to Rebecca. I believe seat racing is often badly done and often inappropriately used as a selection tool.

    As both a masters athlete and a coach, I would be very happy to review your seat racing publication.

    I would like to. I have been a coach, and for more than 20 years, a selector for the Australian National Teams. Hence I have experience of a lot of approaches and as a professional scientist take an objective approach, at least I think so.

    Hi, I’d love to have a read of your book and review it from a coxswain’s perspective if you haven’t had this done already.
