This squad includes junior athletes up to and including J17s.  The training emphasis is on good technique and training to race, and we've had good success in all our events. We train 4 times a week on average and this includes the famous Sunday morning heads.

Beginners

We run an annual beginners course, and we currently have vacancies for juniors aged 11 or 12.  The course will be run in September 2016, with an introduction on Sunday June 26th and during the following weekends up to Christmas, and the coaches are assisted by many of the more experienced juniors.  The emphasis in the first year is learning technique and becoming proficient in all the boats, especially the single.
