Coaching Clinic: The Ideal Stroke and How to Coach It with Ethan Curren

Join GWC for 2018’s first Coaching Symposium.

If you are a coach looking to take a big step in improving your craft this year we invite you to learn from GWC’s Director of rowing, Coach Ethann Curren. In this seminar we will walk you through some of the most important aspects of creating a program that emphasizes smart rowing, precision, and efficiency.

Some of the issues we will tackle:

  • How do you pick a style that best suits your athletes?
  • How do you break down particular elements of the stroke for your crews?
  • What are the best strategies for correcting bad habits?

Though geared towards coaching, registration is also open to rowers looking to get a first hand look at the ideal stroke.


When: Saturday January 27th from 2:30 – 5:00PM

Where: Genesee Waterways Center
