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.

Wear plenty of thin layers when in the boat. Not thick absorbent coats.
