The men’s squad includes athletes with many years of rowing experience to experienced novices. Those relatively new to the sport would join the Intermediate squad which acts as a stepping stone to the senior squads within the club, in order to develop their skills and competitive edge.
The senior end of the men’s squad is for those athletes wanting to train regularly and race at the national events; Head of the River, Dorney Regattas and Henley Royal Regatta. For those who either cannot commit to the full programme or are not yet ready to compete at this level but still have a strong desire to race and improve then there will be an opportunity to race at more local regattas and gain experience at the larger events. Much of the training is measured and athletes will row with squad members of similar ability with the opportunity to move up as their performance improves.
