We welcome people of all ages and abilities who are interested in taking up rowing as a competitive or recreational sport, or simply as social members of the Club.
Rowing is the ultimate sport for teams and individuals, requiring a combination of strength, power, endurance, skill, precision and commitment.
Junior Learn To Row
The summer Junior Learn To Row (L2R) programme introduces children to the fundamentals of rowing and river safety in fun, enjoyable sessions under the guidance of our experienced coaches. We welcome children 12-18 years of age, able to swim at least 50 metres with a willingness to learn a new skill. The next course is yet to be confirmed, although we do collate a waiting list for those interested in participating in future Junior Learn To Row courses.
Please Contact SBC for further details and to join the waiting list.
Adult Learn To Row
Would you like to learn to row and enjoy the benefits of exercise in the fresh air on the beautiful River Severn? If you would like to try something new, why not join the next starter course? Learn how to get in the boat safely and gain the confidence to enjoy rowing in a crew boat.
After the course you will be able to apply for club membership! It is likely to take a further six months of development to become a skilful rower.
The dates for Adult Learn to Row sessions are not currently confirmed for 2023 but please email SBC if you would like to join the waiting list for the Learn 2 Row Adult Starter Course at email@example.com
Experienced Rowers and Scullers
SBC has several master’s crews from 35 – 75 years of age! Some are recreational, although most like to race locally.
Wins this season include Vet F 1x British Masters Championships and W Vet D 1x Henley Masters. SBC has crews who train on Tuesday and Thursday mornings as well as the weekend.
Coxes and Launch Drivers
We are looking for Coxes at SBC
As long as you can sit in the seat you are in! The cox is the person a rowing crew rely on when racing. People with confidence to command a group of adults and a willingness to learn makes you the perfect candidate. The crew need to feel safe in the boat knowing you will be in control of steering the boat! Training will be provided to those interested in taking on the challenge.
If you are a club member or possibly a junior parent and would like to become certified to drive a launch please get in touch. Having a launch driver allows a coach to focus on coaching the crew. SBC also relies on launch drivers for safety at regattas and heads enabling everyone to race. RYA Level 2 Power Boat courses are available locally.
