Vesta is a rowing club full of athletes and coaches working in full-time employment as well as committing most evenings and mornings to training. Time is at a premium, therefore using a service like Rowe.rs allows club members to focus on work rather than on the admin of score logging, reviewing and planning. Rowe.rs allows a multitude of coaches to feed into a unified system with notes, erg scores, availability, crew selection and much more. The greatest benefit we have found is sitting down with athletes to review current performance and improvements, further aiding competition in the squads. This tool helps add a professional level of management to an amateur sports club.
We introduced Rowe.rs into our program as part of our effort to simplify team communications, streamline data collection, create transparency across the squad and increase our athletes personal tracking of their performances and progress. Rowe.rs has helped us meet these goals with their intuitive platform. We introduced Rowe.rs midway through the year as it was clear to us that as a platform the more data entered, the more powerful of a tool the platform becomes. We opted to start collecting data immediately, rather than wait to get going at the start of a new year.
