MRC is offering a new, 6 session program taught by Nancy Jarvis for rowers who would like to have additional early season, technique-intensive coaching in a small group format.  We're calling it "Technique Tuesday".  

When: Tuesdays, April 24 - May 29,  5:25am-7am

Where:  MRC Boathouse

Who:  All rowers who come to morning practices are eligible

Cost:  $90/rower for the 6 sessions, all of which would go to the MRC equipment fund. Contact Fran if you would like scholarship money.

The program accommodates 8 rowers.  First come first serve for sign up.

Each rower must attend all sessions or find a sub.

Sessions will be on the water in an 8+, or on ergs if weather prevents rowing. 

Focus of the sessions will be technical (ie lots of drills, square blade rowing, half boat rowing).

Sessions will be videotaped for subsequent review.

  1. Body swing, release (body mechanics,     tapdown)    
  2. Catch preparation and slide control
  3. Catch and drive initiation
  4. Drive (body mechanics, blade depth, pressure     on foot stretchers)
  5. Release and feathering
  6. Rowing together
