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.

There will be no organised training or events from after the Walton RC CP races on Sunday 18th December, until an evening session on Thursday 5th January 2017. There may be ad-hoc sessions organised by various sub-groups, but for the general junior membership that's it for Christmas.
Clive, Nick, Graham and Matt all wish you the compliments of the season. Eat well - but remember it all needs to be worked-off come the new year!
It's cold on the river - no bare skin rule now applies. Warm socks, leggings and long tops please!
Reminder on Clothing :
BOW Person or single sculler MUST WEAR A HI VIZ TOP. This is an important club rule.
Always bring spare clothes and towel even on Thursdays. The rule is simple - No change of clothes - No Rowing.
Bring warm clothes for prior and post rowing especially during this recent cold spell.
Wear plenty of thin layers when in the boat. Not thick absorbent coats.
