Wycliffe Junior Rowing Club

The Wycliffe Junior Rowing Club was established by Wycliffe's Director of Rowing and 2 volunteer coaches to provide local children with the opportunity to learn to row.

Weekly weekend coaching sessions are run from the Wycliffe Boat Club, using Wycliffe Boats and equipment. 

It is a fully functioning rowing club, with entries to regattas and races all part of the experience.

Aims

To provide access to specialist rowing coaches and equipment to local children, with a view to inspiring the next generation of GB rowers.

The immediate beneficiaries are those children who access the club, but on a wider basis it benefits the wider WAGS (Worcester, Avon, Gloucestershire and Somerset) rowing community.
