Men’s Squad

Worcester Rowing Club has two Men’s squads  – Senior Men and Development Men – both of which are high performance and regularly take part in national events such as the Head of the River, Metropolitan Regatta and Henley Royal Regatta as well local and regional events.

Worcester has a strong record of developing athletes who have gone on to compete at national events – the club has won the Wyfold Challenge Cup at HRR – and at international level.

High Performance

The squad aims to compete and win on the national stage as well as supporting athletes and coxes who want to trial for GB. The squad train 6 days a week with a mixture of land and water based training with more focus on water time in the lead up to major events.

We aim to develop our athletes in both sculling and sweep disciplines but with an emphasis on sweep as we usually race in fours or eights at major events.

Our athletes also benefit from weekly strength and conditioning sessions. Most of the squad are in full time work or education so flexibility is built in to the program to accommodate everyone’s work and study priorities.

Coach: Steve Fuller

Development squad

If other commitments won’t allow you to train to such an intensity or you’ve only recently started rowing this is best squad for you. The training program has a slightly lower volume and is flexible around the athlete. The squad aims to win events on the local circuit as well as competing at some national events like the Head of the River.

Talk to squad captain Rob Phillips if you’re interested in joining.

At Worcester Rowing Club we have great training facilities to support the development of our athletes. These include:

  • Weights room with free weights, lifting platform and all necessary equipment.
  • Ergo room with Concept2 ergos including dynamic and sliders
  • Clubroom for stretching, relaxation and video analysis
  • One of the best fleets in the region which consists of an Empacher 8+, Fillipi 4-/x and Fillipi 2- amongst others.
  • A beautiful 7km stretch of the River Severn
