Sweep Clinic with Canadian National Team Coach

Members of the Canadian Mens’ National Team will be training in Boulder soon for the 2012 season including the London Olympics.    On Saturday and Sunday, April 14th and 15th, Olympic Gold Medalist and Senior National Coach (Men), Terry Paul, will conduct two sweep clinics for BCR members on Boulder Reservoir.   The Saturday, April 14th clinic will focus on members coming out of the Novice program.   Sunday, April 15th will target members with at least one year in Experienced or Racing.   Each clinic will run 7-9am, cost is $25/rower (coxswains free).   BCR coach Ala Crockett will support the clinics by taking videos.

The plan is to have one 8+ each day to provide the most coaching attention possible, however, if there is sufficient interest within the club a second 8+ may be added. Due to his primary commitments Coach Paul is not available for private clinics.

As a cox for the 1992 Men’s eight, Terry Paul helped the crew bring home Gold for Canada from the Barcelona Games. Since then, he has gained much experience as a coach in Canada with the men’s program and with the Swiss National Team. Terry coached the 2002 World Cup Gold Medalist lightweight men’s four, and women’s double, and has been in charge of the Under-23 and non-Olympic programs. In 2006, he coached the Under-23 men’s eight to a Gold Medal and the senior coxed four to a Silver Medal at the World Championships. In 2008, Terry coached the men’s pair to Olympic Silver in Beijing.
