Head Of River Race 2008
Our Men’s squad caters for all levels of rowers, from complete beginner to those who are keen to train and race at local and national events. This season, approximately 15 athletes of varying ability and age are training together in a variety of boat classes. The squad is open to all male rowers regardless of level or experience.
squad trains together 5 times a week, but our training programme
includes additional sessions that we fit in around the rest of our
lives. The full programme consists of about 10 sessions a week. The
training is made up of ergo sessions, strength & conditioning
work and training outings on the River Wear. In 2011, our training
programme enabled the squad to field a crew in the Double
Scull Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta.
The crew in question reached the quarter final, losing to the USA
However, if you do not want to train this much, don’t panic! Many of the squad choose to attend the 5 main sessions only. It is entirely up to each athlete as to how many sessions they attend, as we do understand that people have other things to do than going rowing.
