The Junior Summer Learn to Row is hosted by our dedicated & experienced coaches
and helped by members of our existing rowing squads here on the river Dee in Chester.

During the weeks attendees will learn the basics of rowing knowledge and skills and forms the first part of Go Row level 1, this will include;

-      Learning about safety, on & off the water

-      Theory about being able to identify boats and equipment that you will be using

-      Learning and developing skills and technique for rowing (sculling) and coxing.


Due to the interest every year and ensuring correct staffing levels we require advance booking.  Discipline is a keen issue with us and any misbehavior cannot be tolerated, especially on the water. All participants will be expected to wash and clean boats once used and assist in placing coaching launches in the water and retrieving. Attendees MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM
