All our crews gave a good account of the...
Their training schedule is highly organised to maximise the benefits of the time put in by the athletes. The training programme is straightforward with a mixture of land based and water based training to suit the seasons.
Flexibility to accommodate athletes is permitted and can be built around the individual to ensure that training is maintained away from the club premises. It is recognised that rowing is a time demanding sport and that self-directed training is sometimes a necessity particularly during the winter season.
During regatta season, it is expected to race at the major multi-lane regattas at Dorney Lake and attend qualifying regattas for Henley Royal Regatta. Locally, Worecster compete for the West of England Challenge Vase which is a highly regarded event in the region; it is a well fought race which attracts clubs from beyond the region.
The squad is friendly yet competitive. Much of what we do is measured, so athletes tend to row in their peer groups and the opportunity exists for athletes to move up when their performance both on and off the water improves.
Selection of crew boats is done through a variety of techniques but namely ergo tests, seat racing and the opinions of the coaching team. Each and every athlete is given the opportunity to prove their performance and there is no restriction on an individual’s desire to progress.
We are proud to have one of the best fleets in the region, consisting of Empacher 8+, Fillipi 4-, Fillipi 2- and Fillipi 4+ amongst other boats.
