Objective of the present study was to substantiate the development of an innovative methodology of operating control and management of training loads imposed on highly-qualified rowers.
Using the SPEED COACH device, we registered the following parameters: duration of rowing, number of strokes, rowing speed, boat speed, distance covered, and athletes’ heart rate. The DigiTrainer device helped determine the duration of rowing, number of strokes, pace, boat speed, and distance covered. Using the MSON module, we monitored the following kinematic parameters: paddle, linear accelerations, angular velocities, orientation angles, linear velocities, linear vertical displacements. The method of optical-electronic registration of kinematic parameters of the boat movement involved high-speed video recording at a speed of 1000 frames per second (Fastec Imaging) and the use of a portable computer, combined into a hardware-software complex. The article considers the conditions for the development of the methods of control and management of training loads in rowing, for which the selection of load parameters and data transfer technology is an important stage. These conditions are implemented in the LoRa transmission technology protocol. Based on the selected data transfer technologies and optoelectronic circuits solutions, we created three prototype hardware complexes for the formation of an information and communication environment for operating control and management of training loads imposed on highly-qualified rowers. In terms of structure, the complex consists of the following units: data collection, data processing and information transfer unit (from the side of the boat) and core (coaching) unit.
A well-grounded innovative approach will enable to provide more qualitative control and management of training loads in rowing sports.

Keywords: rowing, methods of control and management of training loads, innovative approach, technical devices.
