Rowing is a truly inclusive sport. It’s fun, friendly, addictive and it’s never been easier to have a go! We offer two types of Learn to Row courses: Junior and Adult.
Adult Learn to Row
We teach the basic technique and rowing knowledge needed to start in the sport, completion of this will enable you to join one of our squads so you can continue to improve and grow in confidence. The course will be 10 sessions (approx. 2 hours per session) which will be held on Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoon.
Junior Learn to Row
This course is aimed at juniors aged 12-15 (Year 8-10) to participate in all things rowing. The course will take place during the school summer holidays on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 2-4pm. Participants will spend the majority of their time on the water in single sculls, mixed doubles or quads. They will take part in a swim test in a local pool, spend sessions on the rowing machine and will also take part in circuit training. We put a strong emphasis on safety and learning good technique. This helps to prevent injuries and also ensures a solid understanding of the sport. Sport should be fun and we aim to deliver this too! If your child is in Year 11 or above please consider one of our Adult Learn to Row courses which take place twice yearly.
Learn to Cox
Cox's are an integral part of the success of many of the clubs larger boats. A good cox can make the difference between having an enjoyable outing or not getting out at all. We welcome coxes throughout the year but run specific courses for those new to the sport, or wanting to develop their knowledge of the skills required, or the water the club regularly rows on.
