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 bow now hangs 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

As usual.  Followed by 200 club. 
Note; due to a half marathon being run on that day some of the local roads will be closed, including Thames Street.  You may need to be dropped off in Weybridge and make your way to the Club on foot.  I think it should pretty much be over by the time the session ends.

Saturday 28th March
The Skiff club are holding a marathon event today at 10:00 and 11:15.  We will need to keep out of their way and may change the time of our sessions to assist them, as they assist us in our events.  In the absence of any information to the contrary, come at your normal times.
