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

Look at the highlights from HRR day 2, particularly the first race, Shrewsbury Sch vs Henley RC.  This is rowing to which all members of the Junior section - Beginners, Intermediates and Performance should aspire.  Watch and learn not only from the boats but also the commentary.

Training for intermediate / beginners as follows:

Thursday 2nd July 2015
New beginner group at 16:30, Intermediate group at 17:00.

Saturday 4th July
Training as normal.  New beginners session at 2pm.  
Elmbridge Leisure Live at Churchfields Recreation Ground, Weybridge,  Lots to do and you can help Clive and Judy to look after the Weybridge Rowing Club exhibit.  Please do come along wearing your Weybridge T-shirts.

Sunday 28th June
Intermediate training at 10:00

Please note that Clive will be out at Leisure Live all day Saturday then is on holiday from Sunday 5th - Sunday 19th July.  Training will be with Nick, Graham and Neville.

From Saturday 16th May we are amalgamating the Intermediate and Beginner classes.  This means a small increase in fees for beginners about which I will write separately.  Due to serious congestion at the Club between 10:00 and 10:30 we are changing the time of our training sessions to 12:00 (for 12:15) for an experimental period of time (unspecified).


A list of possible / probably club events has been posted on the events section of this website - www.wrcjnr.com/events.

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