Summer Training Times

The summer sessions are structured as follows:

Tuesday Evenings:

Junior Session, senior members will be asked to yield any equipment required for juniors during this session.


Wednesday Evenings:

Senior Session, please note we are trialling hosting this additional senior session this season. The coaching team feel the junior section has come on leaps and bounds in last couple of years and we would like our seniors to have same opportunity in order for seniors to get most out of the sport (recreationally or competitively). The coaching team will only continue hosting this session if there is sufficient demand from seniors. We kindly ask that seniors make an effort to attend these sessions where possible, particularly those that expressed an interest in competing this year.  

In preparation for British Junior Championship a few selected Junior single scullers may be granted water access during the Wednesday session if there is single sculls available but there is no guarantee a single will be available and may you not be granted water access and may be asked to train on rowing machine.


Thursday Evenings:

Racing Crews and Scullers (Both Seniors and Juniors). This session will be for set racing crews that have competed in past and wish to continue racing this year or competent members that expressed an interest to compete this year (coaching team will inform individual members directly).


Please note, in order to allow evening sessions to run smoothly and in fairness to other attendees we kindly ask members to attend on time. Coaches may not be able to accommodate any member that arrives late to these sessions. Latecomers may be granted water access after boating other members or will be given a land session on the rowing machine

Winter Training Times

In winter (daylight saving time), we continue to train at these days/times however Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening sessions are held indoors and all sessions are open to all club members.

Sunday morning rowing continues on the water all year round, except where the conditions on the river are considered too dangerous by our coaching team.
