Welcome back to Broken Oars Podcast, the world's best rowing podcast.
In this episode, to celebrate the start of the new season, the Southern One and the Northern One take a deep dive into coaching and coaches.
With that new season stretching ahead of us like a book full of chapters waiting to be written, with plans to be made, schedules to be agreed, and training and racing getting back to full swing, we get deep and philosophical on what a coach actually is; where a coach's responsibilities begin and end and the role of a coach within the club.
We look at the legals, the morals, the ethicals, as well as the technical and organisational requirements of coaching, and explore what makes a good coach.
Drawing on our experiences with various coaches and various clubs, we look at how good coaches organise, delegate and educate, aligning a club / coach's ambitions to a club / coach's resources, and ask the question: what should a rower / crew / squad / club expect from their coach, and what should a coach expect from their rower / crew / squad / club?
We look at the degree to which a coach is responsible for training plans, workloads and race schedules; how coaches select crews, and what crews should expect from their coach in terms of input and selection; and the thorny question of taking on responsibility for your own development and outcomes.
Exploring ideas around coaches having favourites and why they do, as well as looking at what happens when their favourites stop performing at the required level, we talk through the issue of whether a coach is responsible for setting the tone of a club's culture, and if a coach has responsibilities towards their rower / crew / squad / club ... what are the rower / crew / squad / club's responsibilities towards themselves and their coach?
There's a reason why we're the world's greatest rowing podcast.
We don't know what it is either.
