Al is an amazing coach. He is very approachable and honest, but you must take the initiative to reach out to him for feedback. He makes good jokes, keeps training fun and interesting, and is extremely knowledgeable about the sport of rowing.

Awesome to work with and always available to chat to. He gave a good insight into rowing and no rowing related matters. Al is easy going and easy to get along with, which makes him easy to talk to.

Al was a very hands off coach and not a great confidant. I found working with him to be extremely difficult. He seems to be going through the motions of what he knows to be successful for most athletes without considering that there and many different approaches that should be taken on such a large team.
