SaarRowingCenter

High-level coaching

SaarRowingCenter (SRC), run by Theo van den Broek, is a professional rowing and sculling school for
master and veteran rowers with courses and training programmes in Germany, the Netherlands and
Spain. SaarRowingCenter (SRC) offers specific race preparation programmes as well as courses aimed
at improving or refining the individual rower’s technique. During courses, there are two coached
training sessions daily; after the session, your coach will analyse your rowing with you using video
footage of the outing. Training and coaching at SRC are provided by a team of around 15 experienced
and qualified coaches. We have our own boats as well as a boat trailer. SRC offers summer courses
and outings in Germany, in Dreisbach on the river Saar and in Berlin. In autumn and winter, we run
courses in Seville (Spain), Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and Duisburg-Wedau (Germany). Upon
request, we can provide one- or multi-day clinics in single sculls or crew boats. We are also happy to
coach crews at their own club or elsewhere. Please get in touch if you would like to receive coaching
for your crew.

In order to optimise your rowing technique, it is important that you are rowing in a boat that is
properly adjusted, with a skilled coach to help you. Training water that is suitable for rowing also
makes a big difference. SaarRowingCenter makes sure that our students will be rowing in a boat that
is well adjusted to the individual rower. Our locations have been picked, among other things, for the
sheltered water they provide for our courses.

SaarRowingCenter organises coached rowing sessions on various locations. In summer, we run
courses in single sculls, (1x), doubles (2x) and personal coaching in Dreisbach an der Saar (Germany,
near Trier) and Berlin. In autumn and winter, we welcome participants in a winter training
programme (5-6 weekends) in Amsterdam (Amstel river/Weespertrekvaart canal) and on the
Regattabahn Duisburg-Wedau in Germany. For coached autumn or winter outings in the sun, we
invite you to join our training week in Seville, southern Spain. We also provide one- or multi-day
clinics for single sculls or crew boats upon request, in Germany or the Netherlands. For crews in
larger boats, we are happy to provide coaching at their own club or elsewhere. Please get in touch if
you would like to receive coaching for your crew.

Finally, we offer coaching courses at various levels, as well as support for rowing clubs in the form of
workshops on subjects such as coaching, video-analysis, train-the- trainer and boat rigging and
adjusting. For these courses and workshops, we work closely with the Dutch coaching consortium
Stichting Roeicoach.

About SaarRowingCenter

Until 2014, Carla Beekman provided sculling courses in Dreisbach an der Saar with her company,
Roeiplezier. In 2014, Theo van den Broek took over under the name SaarRowingCenter, and gradually
added more courses and locations. SaarRowingCenter has since developed into an international
sculling and rowing school, running courses throughout the year on various locations: Dreisbach an
der Saar (Germany), Berlin (Germany), Seville (Spain), Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and Duisburg-
Wedau (Germany). SaarRowingCenter is mainly aimed at master and veteran rowers and offers
courses, 1:1 coaching and master classes to improve or refine the rower?s technique and targeted
race preparation (for instance working on how to get the boat up to speed and how to go faster
efficiently). Most of our rowers are from the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, the United
Kingdom and Scandinavia.

SaarRowingCenter has its own fleet of rowing boats, as well as a boat trailer. Our locations have been
picked for the sheltered water where we run our courses, in combination with their attractive
surroundings. SaarRowingCenter works with a coaching team of around 15 experienced and qualified
coaches.
