Cleveland, OH is the bonus location for the fourth location of The 9th Seat’s 2015 Coxswain Clinic Series. The Cleveland Rowing Foundation is hosting the clinic and I can’t wait to see their boathouse and all eight of their rowing clubs and boats under one roof.
Winter is here which means for coxswains it is time to dust off their clipboards, get new running shoes, and brush up on your stereo management skills. Or it means to take the time to reevaluate your spring time goals, your leadership style, and your technical eye. I’ve designed a new and improved coxswain clinic format that I’m excited to share to the whole rowing community!
You’ve got questions about my coxing and rowing camps? I’ve got answers. This is a working page and I will update it with any new answers to all your questions.
The 9th Seat is not just for coxswains 😉 I’m expanding my summer camp program to include two-one week rowing camps that will allow junior athletes a chance to train like a national team athlete at the University of Washington boathouse, Conibear Shellhouse.

I’ve always wanted to offer coxing clinics at the San Diego Crew Classic because it is a tough but rewarding course to navigate. I’m offering two options: (1) small group session and (2) One-on-one session. Kick off this racing season right and get dialed!
It’s been two months since Hurricane Sandy. The Jersey Shore has been a great day off adventure to all the National Team rowers training at the Princeton Training Center. Two members of the rowing community have chosen to help those affected by the storm. Please join me in helping this great non-profit give back to the small businesses that have made the Jersey Shore a fun day off from day to day stress of training for the Olympics.
Upon reflecting how the Beijing Olympics have shaped me into the Olympian I am today, I’ve learned that you have to enjoy the journey and believe in the process to be able to reach the destination you’ve envisioned.
The naming date for the London Olympics is quickly approaching. I find myself thinking back to the two previous naming dates and realizing the kind of Olympian I was, am, and want to be.
When it comes to important races, preparing for any kind of weather takes practice. Just like preparing for a major presentation or final exam, winning is in the details.
