This is how the process of teaching a rowing class can begin, with a proposal. It takes time to consider the dates, the descriptions, and even the budget.
This past year Sagamore Rowing began offering monthly adult classes over the summer months. The classes were held once per week, but overall were well received.
Over the winter the club is offering a coached session for adults on Saturdays which continues to be very popular.
I’ll see if the 2020 proposal is well received also. This is the first step. Next, if the classes are approved, the club will work on recruiting students and promoting the programs.
So, the waiting game becomes not knowing whether I will be hired to teach a program. But in many ways the goal of submitting proposals is to encourage the club to continue to offer programs for adults.
I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to teach an intermediate sculling program this past July and August. We will see what happens over the year ahead!
