We offer a separate Learn to Row course for those under 18 years old. Please note that the minimum age for learning to row at Tees RC is 12 years old.
The junior sessions at Tees Rowing Club are held each Sunday under the instruction of a group of volunteer coaches and members of the senior squads. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for young individuals to try a new and exciting sport, helping them to discover their potential as future athletes.
There are currently over 30 committed juniors who regularly attend the training sessions, while over 60 potential members eagerly remain on the waiting list. The sessions usually consist of an instructed outing on the water during which the juniors concentrate both on their own technical performance as well as working together to move the boat as a team. If the weather prevents us from boating a range of indoor fitness and conditioning sessions are organised as well as regular lessons on the ergo’s.
The junior squad demonstrates an excellent opportunity for anyone who wishes to get fit, make new friends or just get outdoors and have a great time. Each individual is encouraged to achieve their personal best at their own pace, and our diverse range in ages and abilities provide a relaxed and enjoyable environment enabling new goals to be reached.
We currently have a group of J15 girls training hard in preparation for their first regatta at the end of the summer. Their positive attitude and determination over the past months has provided them with a strong foundation to become a competitive racing crew. We wish them all the best!
There is currently a waiting list for joining the junior squad.
