WOMEN

OUR WOMEN'S SQUAD STRUCTURE

This is a flagship squad for the most committed rowers. Members of the Henley squad are asked to train six days per week and receive the support of high quality coaching on the water and in the gym. Henley squad rowers aim to represent the club at Henley Royal Regatta and at the British Rowing Championships.

The Masters Women are a friendly squad who acknowledge that people have different priorities in their lives and hence try to allow for as much flexibility in the training schedule as possible. The squad train together on land and split into crews preparing for the next head race or regatta on the water. The squad currently fields crews in British Rowing 'C', 'D', 'E' and 'F' categories.

 

Our Masters accommodate both sculling and sweep rowing although improving your single sculling skills is the backbone of the programme and you will quickly develop your skills. We train typically 4 times a weeks and benefit from a dedicated masters coach. 

CLUB 

TRAINING:

up to 3 days a week
 

WATER SESSIONS:

Saturday & Sunday

08:00 – 12:00

The Club squad was introduced in 2016 and has a rapidly growing membership.  It is for all those who are not able to train as frequently as the racing squads but would like to get out in boats 1-3 times a week to get fit, improve technically and get involved in the social side of the club. 

NOVICE

TRAINING:

up to 4 days a week
 

WATER SESSIONS:

Saturday & Sunday

08:00 – 12:00

Our novice squad takes graduates from our Learn2Row programme and prepares them for entry into our senior squads over the course of a year. Our novices enjoy excellent facilities at TwRC and first class support from a dedicated and experienced coaching team. We want our novice rowers to fall in love with the sport whilst building basic technique and fitness.

The training is challenging but not daunting, with the number of sessions per week varying during the year, typically 4 times a week. Practically every session is coached and our novices experience every boat type from singles through to eights. All TwRC novices can expect to compete in winter head races and summer regattas.  Selection for race crews is based on a mixture of performance on the water and on indoor rowing machines. 

On completion of their novice year, TwRC rowers can expect to look back on a fun and rewarding 12 months as a fully fledged 'rower', having mastered solid technique, greatly improved their fitness and hopefully have won their races.
