At City of Bristol Rowing Club we have a thriving and enthusiastic junior section.

The club aims to compete in local and National competitions and looks to accept beginners from years 7 and above. Proficiency in rowing takes time to master and the learn to row process extends over a number of months run by our volunteer coaches.

To establish if its the right activity for you, Junior taster sessions are arranged each Spring. Upon completion, and if committed to the sport, the Junior will be invited to the Learn to Row lessons. These weekly sessions are usually undertaken on Fridays and when proficient, around mid summer, the rower is integrated into the full Junior squad. Sessions will then typically run on Wednesdays or Thursdays 4:45 - 6:30 and on Sundays 12pm - 3pm all year round.

Get in touch with us if you are interested in attending one of our spring taster sessions and we will add you to our waiting list.

Please note:- Following the uptake in rowing post the Olympics we are nearing capacity within our Junior section. Whilst an intake of 12 - 16 new juniors is currently planned for 2014 this is dependant upon capacity of the volunteer coaches to undertake this.
