Senior Squad

Focus: Training for head races / regattas.

The Senior Squad is open to fit and technically proficient rowers who wish to train frequently with the aim of racing competitively at club level and national events. Selection for the squad - as well as racing crews - is based on ergo tests, seat racing, and the opinions of the coaching team. The squad is friendly but competitive.

Squad training is built around Saturday and Sunday mornings on the water, with midweek sessions in the gym and on the ergs during the winter. In the summer, the midweek sessions turn into evening outings on the water. Both water and land training are supported by a knowledgeable and committed coaching team. There is flexibility within the training schedule for those who need it, as agreed with the Captain and coaches.

When: Every Saturday, 8-11.30.

Every other Sunday, 10-12.

Additional expectations: completion of 3 indoor training sets (ergs) weekly.

Novice Squad

Focus: Improving rowing skills.

The Novice Squad is open to those who have some rowing experience and wish to develop their technique and fitness, with the aim of being able to race and potentially progress to the senior squad.

Coached on-water training sessions take place each weekend, and members are also expected to complete midweek land training exercises.

When: Every Saturday, 9-11.30.

Additional expectations: completion of 2 indoor training sets (ergs) weekly.

Social Squad

Focus: Recreational rowing.

If you enjoy rowing but don't necessarily want to compete, have other engagements that mean you can't commit to training every weekend, or just want the luxury to choose how frequently you train, the Social Squad is for you.

The Social Squad is for competent rowers (who have previous experience or have completed our Learn to Row courses) who desire a more leisurely schedule. Social rowers may row as frequently or infrequently as they like. Social squad sessions are primarily on the water, with occasional tank/erg sessions to improve technique.

When: Every Saturday, 12-14.

Coaching

All of our squads follow coaching programmes tailored to their goals and set in conjunction with experienced coaches.

Our Senior squad benefits from a dedicated, experienced coach, who runs most of the squad's water sessions and is focused on taking the squad from strength to strength at races throughout the year. The squad coach also produces a comprehensive land training programme encompassing ergs (rowing machines) and weights for the squad to follow, and takes an active interest in the development of each rower.

Our Novice squad coaches are highly experienced rowers and help our novice rowers flourish on the water, right from the point at which they leave their learn to row course. The goals of individual rowers are accommodated and coaches guide squad members on improvements to both fitness and technique. Coaches also advise on building up land training and prepare those rowers who are ready for a move to the Senior squad.

The Social squad coach is also an experienced rower and provides coaching support across the whole squad, recognizing that despite the more relaxed and recreational nature of the squad, members still want to compete and strive to improve their rowing performance. He advises on technique and race strategy and is a valuable asset to the squad.

Coxing

What is a cox?

The shouty one at the front of the boat doesn’t even begin to cover it! Coxes are responsible for the safety of the crew and the boats, taking on a number of tasks simultaneously including: devising race strategies, steering the boat safely through the course (to victory!), encouraging and motivating our crews, coaching on-water, and generally being awesome!

Our coxes work with crews across all of our squads and yes, of course wear their lycra with pride!
