It is suddenly the end of the summer term and our junior beginner squad have completed their last regatta. The Club thank the coaches and helpers who work to make it all happen.  Many have already gone on holiday and the rest will follow soon. Sadly this means it is the end of the official rowing season for the beginner squad and the new season kicks off in September as follows:

The current J13s and WJ13s move up an age group and will join the main Junior squad. There is a meeting for juniors and your parents at the club at 10.00 on Sunday 3rd September.

The current J12s and WJ12s become J13s and WJ13s on 1 September. The first training session will be at 9.00 on Sunday 3rd September.

The new beginner course starts on Saturday 9th September at 14.00 and will run for 6 Saturday afternoons. It would be appreciated if the current J12s and WJ12s would help with the course whenever they are able to do so.

Between now and September most of the coaches will be on holiday but we can offer the following holiday sessions:

Wed 2 Aug    16.00 – 18.00

Sun 6 Aug    9.00 – 10.30

Sun 13 Aug    9.00 – 10.30

Wed 16 Aug    16.00 – 18.00

Sun 20 Aug    9.00 – 10.30

Wed 23 Aug    16.00 – 18.00

Wed 30 Aug    16.00 – 18.00

Please email or text Danny to let him know if you wish to attend any of these sessions. Some parental help would be welcome.

It has been a fantastic year and on behalf of all the coaches and helpers we would like to thank you and congratulate you on achieving so much and with such great enthusiasm, humour and commitment. We hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have and we look forward to seeing you progress in your rowing careers wherever you may pursue them.

With very best wishes for a great Summer,

The Junior Coaches
