Our New Coach

Introducing Mike Herman

We have a new coach. Having (sadly) sent Tanya along to her next chapter in life, we’re now pleased to have found Mike, who will bring his own talent and enthusiasm to the task of bringing up juniors and making faster masters.

Here’s what he has to say for himself:¬†“I’m from here in Pittsfield, but I went to Boston for high school and eventually college. It was at Endicott College¬†where I learned about rowing. Thinking I’d do baseball most seriously, at the encouragement of a friend, I tried club rowing.

One practice on the erg and I was hooked. just drew me into the sport.

While at Endicott, I was a part of the Varsity A 4+, rowing in events in Lowell, Springfield, Worcester, as well as the Head of the Charles my sophomore year. Throughout my time at Endicott I rowed in fours and eights, and was a part-time coxswain. This is how I learned more about the dynamics of rowing.
I love rowing and I love coaching, and I can’t wait to bring that love to coaching with BCR!”
