Weybridge Rowing Club - Junior Section

Imagining the Possibilities with Weybridge Rowing Club in 2015 and Beyond...

Weybridge Rowing Club Junior Section is a lively and vibrant part of the club.  We run a number of courses during the year specifically designed to introduce youngsters to the sport and run an active competition programme. 

Our top juniors win at local and national events with a number going on to represent GB internationally.  We pride ourselves at being a very 'intimate' operation where we get to know all members of the squad, and they are keen to attend training, working hard, but enjoying it.  

We have an excellent fleet of boats and a professional Head Coach who is ably assisted by a dedicated team of volunteer coaches, many of whom started when their children learned to row at Weybridge, and have stayed on long after their offspring have moved on.

We also have fun when training allows!

Please feel free to contact Clive on clive[at]wrcjnr.com for more information.

This is what happens if you lift a boat when both parties are holding it right at the end.  Boats should be lifted with each person about 1/3 of the way from bow / stern with hands holding the shell firmly.  This boat, one of our nicest, was damaged beyond repair.  Teresa's bows now hang in the club room as a reminder, and the rest of the boat was cut up and burned.  Not a happy end for a lovely elegant boat.  Clive

Training as follows:

Due to water conditions it seems very improbable that we will be able to be on the water.  This includes senior members, so please note that Rachel has allocated the following REVISED indoor training times for juniors for this weekend:

Saturday 28th February
Performance 09:30-11:00*
Intermediates 11:00-12:15
Beginners 12:15-13:30 

HOWEVER - if conditions improve (and they may do so) there is a chance of water time so I'd suggest you come down at your usual time (09:45 for the Intermediates).  If we can't get on the water we'll arrange something else; a bike ride or a run perhaps, so bring bikes if you have them. Also check here again late Friday and early Saturday in case I have posed an update.

Sunday 29th February
Performance 09:30-11:00*
Intermediates 10:50 for 11:00-11:45

* subject to anything else which Mark may arrange


Have a look at this video of the Environment Agency at work - it's filmed on 'our' bit of river.
