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.

Training for intermediate / beginners as follows:

Thursday 3rd September

Land training from 6pm for Junior Intermediate and beginner groups followed by club supper - please bring £4 for supper.

Saturday 5th September 

Training at 11:45 for 12:00-13:30 for Intermediate group and 13:45 for 14:00-15:30 for beginners off the last courses.

Also the Brooklands Fun Day at which the Junior section are leading the Club's involvement so some help is needed, but we will still run a session at 12:00 for intermediates with another at 14:00 for existing beginners and some new folks off our summer courses, as well as a few others who are looking to join up.

Relatively few people have shown an interest in Lea Regatta, and as we are so busy on Saturday and the junior's rag regatta is now on Sunday 6th, we have decided to 'can' attendance at Lea.

Sunday 6th September

No training today as rag regatta instead. This in from Alex Haines:

Rag Regatta at Weybridge Rowing Club!
Sunday 6 September. Arrive at 10am promptly for a briefing on how the races will work and to find out what teams you are in. For friends and family viewing the first race will begin at 10:20.

This is a knock-out competition of mixed teams.

Can I bring friends and family to watch? Yes, please do! The more the merrier!
What do I need to wear? Any sports kit or rowing kit which is suitable for the weather on the day.  Please bring a water bottle, a sun hat and sun lotion if it is hot and if it is cool, spare clothes and a jumper.

The racing is open to junior and senior rowing club members, new members and Weyfarers. 

If you have not already please sign up! https://goo.gl/wLutQy

Hot drinks and snacks will be available in the clubhouse plus the bar will be open. Any donations of cakes would be appreciated.

After the racing has finished there will be prizes given out, this includes the teams that have come last, runners up and first. We will also then draw the prizes from the raffle so make sure you don't miss it!

Hoping to see you there!
