Men and Women 18 and over
A focus on excellence
Star Club welcomes experienced and competitive oarsmen, oarswomen and scullers. The Club’s policy of placing high quality coaching at the centre of all rowing activities makes it especially attractive to athletes who want to compete to the best of their ability. If you wish to be considered for all classes of rowing or sculling up to Henley or National Rowing Championships or for National Squad selection you will be well supported at Star Club.
Star Club has a reputation for producing Olympic and World class athletes over many years, often starting with novice or Junior level entry. We now have a full time Director of Rowing/Coach to ensure that our athletes and volunteer coaches benefit from the best approaches for developing crews.
The rowing season typically starts in September with long distance water based training in small boats, underpinned by land training in the Club’s gym, on rowing ergometers and another local centre for circuit training
Regular assessments are conducted as the squad is prepared for long distance head events including the Fours Head, WEHORR and HORR on the Tideway. After March attention is re-focused on the Regatta season with a series of major events in fours quads and eights as well as small boats leading up to Henley and the National Championships.
The squad has a rich history of winning the Jackson Trophy and triumphed at Henley Royal Regatta, along with medals at the British Rowing Championships, and victories at major summer regattas.
