Junior Rowing

The club has a very active junior squad of around 40 members.  

Safety is a prime concern for the club and as such we may sometimes have to place juniors who are new to rowing on a waiting list. Where we have space, we will take Juniors from Year 7. Our Junior squad train all year round; during he summer this is water based, weather permitting, and during the winter the dark nights restrict weekday sessions to gym work but Saturdays remain water sessions.  This is an outdoor water sport so be prepared for all conditions.  Rain does not stop play, only high winds or lightning will prevent us from putting boats on the water.

All junior sessions have safety/coaching launches on the water.  We insist all rowers can show evidence of being able to swim and once a year we will have a swim session in a local pool.  We carry out capsize training on the water during the warmer months.
