2021 ARION Coaching Internship Program
ARION is excited to offer the 2021 ARION Coaching Internship Program. In alignment with our program mission, ARION strives to help coaches develop through ride-alongs, mentorship, and informal education.
While the Summer of 2020 caught many of us off-guard, we are better prepared for the 2021 program. In the event we are able to offer an in-person internship, ARION will provide housing and a modest stipend in exchange for 15-20 hours of work around the boathouse. Interns will ride along with ARION Senior, U23, and U19 coaches, as well as SRA coaching staff for their Junior competitive, Middle School, Learn to Row, and Adult programming. The intent is to allow coaches to see the American Development Model in action, and how coaching styles and techniques change based on age, skill, and ability.
In the event ARION is unable to host an in-person internship, the program will be held virtually. Meeting 3 times a week, interns will have three main points of emphasis: 1) Reviewing video of interns coaching their own crews, 2) Reveiwing practice sessions of ARION coaches in their training session, and 3) informal educational discussions around areas of coaching. These virtual meetings will allow interns to receive feedback on their own coaching, network with ARION coaches, and still receive an educational foundation.
ARION, as part of our dedication to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, welcomes and encourages all members of the rowing community to apply for consideration. ARION & SRA are committed to improving diversity and inclusion in the sport of rowing by breaking down traditional barriers to entry, increasing the number of BIPOC coaches in the field, and being actively anti-racist in our day-to-day actions.
