Warwick Boat Club has a newly established Junior Section, running weekly sessions and regular training camps for young people aged 14+. For further information, please refer to our Junior pages.
Our Learn-to-Row courses attract many newcomers to the sport, and equip them with all the basic skills to scull or sweep-oar row safely. Courses last 4 weeks, with two sessions per week, and are designed to allow people to try the sport and decide if it suits them, without a massive initial outlay. Contact email@example.com for details. The next LTR will run from Tuesday the 20th of August to Saturday the 14th of September 2019, with sessions running on Tuesdays 6pm and Saturdays 9.30am. Please fill out this form to get on the mailing list or visit again on the 30th July to sign up. The booking will be open from 30th July and restricted to 12 places. Booking link is now available here. Please note, the August course is now full. The next LTR course will be scheduled for March 2020.
Once completed, athletes who join the club are then put into an Improvers group to allow them to hone their skills, and progress towards the status of a racing crew. The Improvers session on a Saturday morning is specifically tailored to bring more experienced rowers and new novices together to receive coaching, find new crew combinations, and transition to the senior squad.
Novice racers then progress through the established classifications of the sport based on their performances at regattas.
New and experienced coxes are particularly valued, and assisted in their development by experienced cox-coaches.
Coaches assist all club members whenever required.
