Introduction

Stirling Rowing Club is a club of mixed abilities ranging from complete beginners to the Worlds Vets champion and Scottish Junior champion
 
We're also mixed age groups from the juniors club which has about 40+ juniors, aged 12-18, student members from 18-23 and the seniors which has about 35+ members in it ranging from early 20's to 50's and 'even more' seniors from 50's to 70's.
 
 
We train on a Tuesday evening from about 6:30pm till it gets dark, and again on Thursdays too.
When the clocks change we find we can't get out onto the river in the evening so we to do circuit and ergo (indoor rowing) training to keep fit. 
We also train on a Sunday mornings at 9.30am till about 1pm. Sundays never stop and we train through the winter and the only Sunday we don't go out is Christmas or New Year, otherwise we're out there unless there is a hurricane.

Several other clubs use our facilities regularly to train so there's always lots going on !

Stirling University Boat Club row & train here on Saturdays from 2pm to about 4.30pm, Monday & Thursday mornings from 7am to 9am and Wednesday afternoons from 2pm to 4.30pm

The Royal Navy row and train here on Thursdays from 1pm to approx 3pm


Stirling Rowing Club is looking to recruit new coxwain's urgently !

We are offering FREE membership to anyone who wishes to train to be a cox i.e. to steer a crew boat

Ideally, you should be fairly lightweight, not overly tall, and fairly confident in directing others - Anyone ever told you you're a little bit bossy ?? Then you're perfect for being a cox !

Please contact us via our contact form, with your details if you'd like to find out more about getting involved with us

In 2016, we have had three 'Come and Try' days for beginners this year in March, June and October.
Next year we will re-start these again and run one every 3 months
 
If you wish to be added to our waiting list for this please contact us  and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
