Inclusion and Support

Standard entry is via a number of links involving County middle and senior schools where pupils are offered rowing under ‘Dry Start’ (indoor) and ‘Wet Start’ (water) schemes known as Project Oarsome, or one of the summer rowing courses organised in partnership with Bedford Borough Council.

 

Athletes join groups according to age and ability. As skills and fitness develop they are encouraged to enter local competitions to gain confidence in the racing situation, with a view to representing the Club at a regional and national level.

All athletes are supported by a team of qualified and very experienced voluntary coaches, led by a full-time employed Director of Rowing.
