RCA invites you to join us from January 28 to 30, 2022 in Victoria, BC for the 2022 RCA National Conference.
Now more than ever, we recognize the need to ignite the passion for rowing within our communities through sharing stories that celebrate our sport, our resilience, and our successes.
RCA will host professional development streams that help reignite our commitment to growing rowing in Canada, building thriving clubs and communities, and supporting coaches in developing safe and inclusive environments.
GROW ROWING STREAM
Learn about best practices from successful programs that have grown the number of participants through the creation of a deeper connection with their local community, embracing diversity and inclusion, and applying innovative thinking to their program design. This stream will build on your knowledge of conventional rowing programming and inspire you to apply new learnings and ideas to grow rowing in 2022 and beyond.
THRIVING ORGANIZATIONS STREAM
Learn how to create member organizations with robust – fit for purpose – governance and risk management; financial security through sustainable business models and revenue diversification; with safe, vibrant and inclusive cultures. This stream will have sessions on topics to enhance club sustainability and how to embrace and develop in areas that are considered a top priority for Canadian sport.
Redefining winning in terms of coaching behaviours that drive safe and inclusive environments focused on physical and mental wellbeing and supporting people to be the best that they can be. This stream will have sessions on developing emotional intelligence (EQ), technical skill development, and insights from successful Olympic coaches.
RCA will celebrate the successes and champions within our rowing community here in Canada and the extraordinary journeys of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic rowing teams. Nominations are now being accepted for RCA’s 2021 Excellence Awards.
The 2022 Semi-Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday January 30.
