The City of Oxford Rowing Club has a range of squads which offer the chance to participate in rowing as part of a team.


Junior Squad - 11 to 18 year olds.


Men's and Women's squads - for adults of all ages, separated into the following groups:


Senior Squads - These squads participate at the highest club level, competing at major national and international event, aiming for a high placing at Head of the River, win multilane and other prestigious regattas, and be a competitive force at Henley Royal Regatta.


Developmental Squad - A stepping stone to the Senior Squads for those developing athletes, aiming to be competitive at the low intermediate categories and qualify for Henley Women's and Henley Royal Regatta.


Beginners Course - Less of squad and more of a course, set over several weeks. Upon completing a beginners course, members will usually move into the Novice Squad.


Masters - The club has a significant number of masters rowers, most of whom scull and own their own boats. They typically organise themselves into crews on their own initiative and have years of experience of rowing.


Adaptive - Adaptive rowing is rowing for people with a disability and is about removing barriers to participation in the sport for anyone who has a physical, sensory or learning impairment.
