Junior Rowing at LVRC

Junior Update Saturday 9th December

The racing squad ventured out in the 8 but a heavy hailstone shower and strong, icy winds made it one of the shortest outings to date.  Everyone got off the water as quick as possible and the rest of the morning was spent in our lovely warm boathouse putting up the Christmas decorations ready for the party next Saturday!

Junior Session Saturday 16th December

The junior session Saturday 16th December will run as usual at the times listed below and will the sessions throughout the Christmas period

Junior Update

Our Junior section is growing with 22 in the 'Newbie' and 'Beginner' groups. These are young rowers who have been attending the Saturday morning £4 session for a few weeks. 

Once they are confident enough to row in a double, they move from 'Newbies' into the 'Beginners' group.

Once you are confident and competent in a single, then you can graduate to the racing squad group, become a member of our club and attend full training sessions on Saturday and Wednesday. You can also start competing in crews for regional and national competitions.

Our Junior Racing Squad are training hard and looking forward to a winter season of competing and, hopefully, bringing home some more medals.

Interested in coming along?

Junior Session Duty Rota

We have 15 members of our adult squad and 11 junior parents who give up their time to help with the junior training sessions, but we often still struggle to have enough cover. We are particularly asking parents of our junior members to give their time occasionally in order that we can continue running these sessions. Unfortunately, if we are unable to secure sufficient cover, we will have no alternative other than to start cancelling sessions.
