New Rowing Members

Are you a new member at Warwick Boat Club?

Juniors:

Warwick Boat Club has a newly established Junior Section, running weekly sessions and regular training camps for young people aged 14-18. For further information, please refer to our Junior pages.

Adults (18+):

Our Learn-to-Row (LTR) 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 learn-to-row@warwickboatclub.co.uk for details. 

Adult LTR courses:

We are pleased to announce the dates for the next learn-to-row course. This will be split into 2 groups of 6 people:

Group 1: Mondays 4.30-6pm and Wednesdays 4.30-6pm, for 4 weeks, starting Monday 17th May. This group will be more suitable for those looking for a more leisurely pace and anyone with flexible hours to accommodate the early start.

Sign-up link for Group 1. This course is now full.

Group 2: Wednesdays 6-7.30pm and Saturdays 9.30-11am, for 4 weeks, starting Wednesday 19th May. This group will be more suitable for the fit and raring to go.

To accommodate for certain occasions, we may ask you to swap groups or move a session to a different day.

Completed the LTR?

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.
