BIGGEST EVER EASTER CAMP AND DISCOVER ROWING PROGRAMME

Ross Rowing Club hosted their annual Easter camp for squad members, combining the camp with its highly successful Discover Rowing programme for new juniors. During the week 20 squad members continued their technical and work related training schedules in preparation for the imminent summer season. The Academy Members were joined by 20 brand new young athletes who completed a course which took them from capsize drill to competent in a racing scull in just 5 days. This programme has been running now for four years and had produced some outstanding athletes and squad members, several of whom have won medals in national events.

The enthusiasm and confidence developed over the week was very impressive with many of the new rowers already keen to join the Junior Academy. The week finished with competitive races which were keenly contested. The final day was capped with a presentation ceremony where the new starters received certificates and medals.

Club Captain Ian Howell said, 'We were keen this year to have a large new intake of young people and it is a real pleasure to be involved in inspiring young athletes to enjoy a new sport. I am very proud of what they achieved and I must pay a huge thank you to the incredible support we had from coaches and club members. Each day we had at least 10 coaches and helpers. Special thanks go to Emily Preece and Geena Watling, both graduates of the Junior Academy who provided exceptional support for the beginner rowers. The icing on the cake was in the midst of this tremendous event , John Faulkner gained his UK Level Two coaching qualification. We are very grateful to John and thrilled by his achievement'.
