Star Club welcomes experienced and competitive oarsmen 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. Top level National coaches are frequently brought into the training programmes to ensure that our athletes and regular 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 other local centres for circuit training.
Regular assessments are conducted as the squad is prepared for long distance events leading up to the Tideway Head in March. After the Tideway attention is re-focussed on the Regatta season with a series of major commitments in VIII’s and other commitments leading up to Henley and the National Championships.
In recent years the squad has retained the Jackson Trophy and triumphed at Henley Royal Regatta. Along with medals at the British Rowing Championships, and victories at major summer regattas.
