The CRRC Mission
- To develop student-athletes and help them achieve their goals
- Be competitive annually at a national level while also providing athletes with the knowledge and skills base necessary to row and train at a higher level.
- To train the “whole athlete”. This includes gaining athletic maturity and developing good pre-performance routines (nutrition, sleep, hydration, stretching, etc) to learning how to prevent injury and be able to better hold themselves accountable on and off the water.
- For athletes to be able to practice in small boats, developing their boat-moving abilities.
CRRC Coaching Structure
Our Head Coach works with the varsity athletes of our Junior Competitive Team while also overseeing our entire staff. The head coach is a full-time employee that manages the daily operations of our club alongside our volunteer Board of Directors.
Junior Competitive Team Staff
A staff of 3-4 assistant coaches work under the guidance of the head coach. Together, the staff develops and implements a long-term development model for the athletes. Our novice coaches teach the basic elements of rowing while instilling a passion for the sport. Our assistant varsity coaches are the vital bridge between the novice and varsity squads.
Middle School Crew Staff
We have a lead middle school coach that supervises the daily operations of our middle school program. The lead coach works with 1-2 assistants to formulate a structured environment focusing on having fun while learning to row.
Summer Coaching Staff
The summers at CRRC are quite busy with camps running all day Monday-Friday. Each summer we look to bring in additional coaches to help share their passion for the sport while gaining experience in coaching. Our Lead Summer Camp Coach supervises a staff that will work with our junior and middle school programs, our high performance team, and our learn-to-row camps.
This NEW position on our staff is working to expand our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts of our club.
Adult Program Coaches
While our youth programs are the focus of our club, we also offer adult programming. We have a We Can Row coach that works with our cancer survivors program. In addition, a portion of our staff works with our Friends & Family program, a group of adults with wide-ranging skill levels.
It is important to the daily operations of our club that the equipment is in working condition. We have a dedicated coach that works to ensure any damage is fixed.
The majority of our staff are part-time employees. Those seeking a career with Camp Randall may combine coaching duties as seen fit. In addition to the above positions our staff also oversees recruiting, our annual spring regatta, and more.
