‘Explore Rowing’ (or L2R / Learn 2 Row) takes place on Friday evenings, (Saturday subject to confirmation) and Sunday mornings
Our volunteer coaching team endeavour to make your rowing experience both instructive, fun and engaging with the help and support of members of the club.
Recreational boats will be used which are more stable and are designed to ensure that you learn the correct rowing technique, before you move into the fine racing shells.
The outcomes of the Learn to Row are:
• A working knowledge of the sport, both on the water and off
• An understanding of safe rowing procedures
• An understanding of the basic rowing technique
• The ability to row and or scull with others (and on your own !!)
• Knowledge of Ross Rowing Club
• Temporary membership of the Club and progression to a rowing squad, if desired
• A great time and lots of fun, we even practice capsizing !!
(pictured 2016 Women’s Novice Coxed Quad with Justyna, Nikki W, Nikki K & Nadine, the cox, Meghan was in the coaching boat pdq) >> UPDATE – ALL THESE SCULLERS WON EVENTS DURING SUMMER 2017, ONLY 1 YEAR AFTER FIRST JOINING #THISGIRLCAN SO CAN YOU
The usual cost is £90 for the course and your fees will also provide you with club Membership, Coaching and 12mth Silver membership to the British Rowing Association.
We are planning to run a number of group 6week courses through 2018, please get in touch for more info
If you already have a friend at the club, and just fancy a taster session one weekend morning, then get in touch and we’ll make it happen.
WHY DON’T YOU JOIN US?
There is no criteria regarding age, sex or ability other than you should be 18 or over and not suffer from any major medical conditions (although it should be ok to participate on your doctors advice) and not be afraid of water (i.e be able to tread water and swim for 50m in light clothing) or having fun.
The courses will last for 12sessions (on Friday evenings & Saturday & Sunday late mornings) and then if you have enjoyed the course, you can join the club and the Novice/Development section, developing further skills including how to cox if you are of a suitable size.
For further details contact: Tim Ball (Men’s Captain & L2R Coordinator).
