Head Coach for Queen's Rowing Announced
Phil Marshall has been named the head coach of the Queen's Gaels rowing program and a Performance Coach for the Kingston Rowing Club (KRC), as announced by Sean Scott, Director, High Performance Sport Operations, on Friday.
Queen's and the KRC have partnered together to support this jointly funded coaching position that will support both Queen's and KRC's programming.
"This partnership builds on an already strong connection between KRC and Queen's, and we're very excited about the experience and focus that Phil will bring to competitive rowing in Kingston," says Michael Vandenburg, club president at the KRC. "With a dedicated group of volunteer coaches, our athletes have represented Kingston well on the provincial, national and international stage, most recently at the Olympics. We're fortunate to have Phil join us to build on that tradition of excellence."
The Gaels current head coach of the rowing team, John Armitage, will continue through the 2016-17 season while Marshall finds his footing at Queen's.
