Programs, Coaching and Safety Committee
Programs, Coaching and Safety (Director: Betsy Bagley)
The Programs, Coaching and Safety committee is responsible for developing and supporting MBC rowing programs and coaching staff. This includes providing appropriate programs for rowers of all range of skill levels and competitive interests and ensuring coaches have appropriate skills and resources to safely teach and coach MBC rowers. The committee is to work with Program Director to define and implement policies on boat use, team selection, talent identification, safety, regatta participation and training programs. Assist the director in recruiting, evaluating, and retaining paid and volunteer coaching staff for all rowing programs (e.g. MBC School of Rowing, Novice, Club, and Competitive). Conduct scrimmages with other rowing organizations (e.g. Pike Island Challenge).
