Learn to row for juniors
We are looking to expand our junior section of the rowing club in 2018 so will be registering interested juniors with a view to offering introduction to rowing courses at the club.
We will be focussing on 13-15 age groups (years 8 and 9) but we may be open to other age groups depending on demand and our resources. Places for all courses will be limited so if you are interested don’t wait to contact the junior coordinator. Our proposed plans pending enough applicants will be something like the following.
Step 1 – indoor rowing
These sessions are aimed at learning the basic of good rowing technique using the indoor rowing machines (or ergos) and other land based exercises. We will also learn some basic terminology and take a look at some of the boats in the boathouse.
There will be three sessions starting on Mondays at 4.45 – 5.45 pm at the rowing club starting second half of February. The cost of this initial course is £6.
The taster session will be arranged in the second half of March and will include have a go at getting in and out of a boat and a go on the water.
Step 2 – introduction to rowing course
This course aims to give an experience of going on the water and practicing some of the basics that were learnt on the indoor rowing.
There will be four sessions of about 2 hours from 9 to 12 April — course A (8.45 am) or course B (11am)
There will be 4 sessions of about 2hrs – dates will be advised to interested individuals.
The cost of the course is £40 to include a useful handbook of technique and terms.
