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.

Following their sparkling performance at BritChamps in Strathclyde 18/19 July, Layla and Phoebe have been selected to race the 2x in England (ie not GB) colours this weekend for the home international in Strathclyde. 

Layla, through the trials system, will also row in the coxed 4+. 

Congrats to Mark and both girls


Training for intermediate / beginners as follows:

From Saturday 1st August we will amalgamate the Intermediate and Beginner groups at 12:00 on Saturday.  There are so many people away on holiday it's not practical to run two groups.  Hopefully we can help the beginners stretch themselves by rowing with more experienced people.  There will, therefore, NOT be a session at 2pm on Saturdays (until the beginning of the next 'term').

There will be no organised training from Thursday 13th August to Saturday 29th August.  There will be a session at 10:00 on Sunday 30th August.

Saturday 5th September is the Brooklands Fun Day at which the Juniors section are leading the Club's involvement so some help is needed, but we will still run a single session at 12:00 for intermediate and beginners.

We are considering an entry at Lea Autumn on Sunday 6th September so please let me know if you are available for this.


Thursday 30th July, 6 & 13 August 2015
Combined session at 5pm- 7pm (but be here at 5pm please)

Saturday 1st & 8th August
One session at 12:00 (see above). 

Sunday 2nd August
Due to the Ride London cycle event which closes the roads around Weybridge, there will not be a session today. 

Sunday 9th August
Session at 10:00


Monday 27th July and 3rd August
We have two weeks of Junior beginner courses for which we need help.  As with the Community Regatta this is a major fundraising effort and takes a lot of work to run.  We need help please.  I know some are away but all those who are not - please come to help us.  Nick, Graham, Roy and I can't do it all ourselves and we do it for your benefit.  Some of our new members could help with this, as other junior members helped you!

Have a look at this page which includes some interesting videos of skills you ought to be able to master .... from British Rowing.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
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).
