For those new to rowing an invitation to join the Junior squads will generally be based on suitability following the Junior Learn to Row course (see ‘Learn to row’)

Our junior squads are organised according to school age ie J13s = School Y8. Training is land based in the week during the winter season and water based at weekends. Rowing camps are sometimes organised during school holidays.

The Junior Squad is headed up by a Chief Junior Coach. Boys and Girls in each age group have a different main coach and assistants/helpers who help on a rota basis. We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all members, including the Junior members. All coaches are CRB checked by the club Welfare Officer in accordance with British Rowing requirements.

This club has produced a booklet as a practical guide for parents on what to expect being a parent of a Henley Rowing Club Junior Squad member, whether you are a rower or new to rowing, we hope you find this helpful.
