RCR is a competitive and spirited club of approximately 50 men and women masters rowers, dedicated to competitive success and fitness as well as camaraderie and the enjoyment of a great sport. Our rowers have competitive rowing experience and include athletes with collegiate rowing backgrounds as well as many who have come to the sport as adults. There is a wide range of ages in the program from the early 50’s to the mid 70’s. We row out of Thompson Boat Center in Georgetown and practice and compete in sweep and sculling boats (8+, 4+, 2x & 1x). We pursue a racing schedule in both sprint and head seasons, including events in the DC area and regional or national events such as Diamond State Masters, Masters Nationals, and various head racing including the Head of the Charles
We practice two to four mornings a week, two sessions per morning from 6:00am to 7:30, then from 7:35 to 8:50am. Our on-water season is from mid-March until mid-November, weather permitting. We also conduct a popular winter training program at the Georgetown University field house consisting of erg training along with core, strength, and flexibility training. Many of our rowers compete in Mid-Atlantic Erg Sprints.
The successful applicant will have at least 3 – 5 years of prior coaching experience (work with masters rowers is desirable, but not required); will be an outstanding technical coach capable of communicating clearly and effectively with individual rowers as well as the boat as a whole; have a US Rowing Level 2 or higher coaching certification; Current CPR/First Aid and launch driving certification; and will be energetic, organized, and enthusiastic about coaching adult athletes who want and expect to work hard, constantly improve, and compete at a high level while also having fun and encouraging one another.
We are a member-funded club and pay a competitive salary to our coaches. Interested applicants should send a resume to: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
