#USRowCon2021 has ended

WELCOME - Life is changing, it’s time to adapt! Things are evolving – technology, communication, coaching, DEI initiatives, equipment, best practices, SafeSport. All of this makes running a club or coaching a team both exciting and challenging. We understand that you have a lot of questions and USRowing’s Annual Convention can help give answers and advice. Each day, a keynote speaker will kick us off before we dive into webinars, guest speakers, hands-on demonstrations and more. We hope you join us for these five days of learning from the experts (and of course some fun)!

Jim Cooper

Norwalk River Rowing / USRowing Safety Committee
Boatman / Coach
Norwalk, CT USA
Jim “Coop” Cooper has a strong NRRA presence as a masters rower and as the Equipment Manager and Maintenance person—or, in traditional rowing parlance—as our ‘Boatman’. Coop is instrumental in making improvements throughout the site and keeping our fleet of launches operable and safe. He has been with NRRA since its founding in 1986.

As Coop says, “Rowing brings out the best in all of us: focused concentration, meditative release, community spirit, introspective solitude, the desire to win, and the ability to concede defeat. It is ALL life lessons; entrenched in one outing.” Coop is an ardent believer in the importance of a firm handshake and a hearty greeting. Be ready!
