  • What is the level of commitment to become a competitive athlete?
    Rowing is a highly competitive, medium endurance sport and takes place outdoors all year round. Members are expected to commit to regular training in the gym after school in order to develop the correct movement patterns, technique, strength and fitness. Junior training takes place in school term time, though some older groups of athletes continue to train during the school holidays. Racing in junior rowing takes place in year groups and attendance requirements rise as young athletes get older, rising to eight to ten sessions per week for 16–18 year-olds.

    We do not offer any courses but but juniors may join our Junior Club Squad, our entry level, at any time throughout the year.
  • Are the coaches qualified?
