Coaches & Coach Education

GVYRS coaches are vital to the success of the school leagues. The GVYRS board has implemented policies and procedures to support coach development and excellence.


Here are some of the ways GVYRS is supporting coach development:

  • Financial support for:

    • Rowing Canada Learn-to-Row Instructor's Course and RCA Coach (Weekend 1 & 2)  

    • RCA/NCCP Online Modules as required by Every Coach Certified

  • Training and orientation sessions at Elk Lake and Gorge Narrows locations before the beginning of the season

  • Arranging specialized coach education and development opportunities within our league

VCRC or GNRC may cover up to half of your certification costs if you intend to coach with their club beyond the school season. If you cannot obtain additional financial support, GVYRS will cover all your coach certification fees, so long as you coach in one of our Fall Rowing Leagues.
