#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)!
