Club squads

There are three options for men and women at Upper Thames; the Senior Squad, a club squad and casual rowing. The club squad is for anyone who wants to enjoy their time on the river without necessarily committing to Senior Squad sessions or the full training programme.

The facilities are available seven days a week for anyone who would rather follow their own programme or concentrate on their own agenda, whatever that might be. Scullers often prefer the flexibility to do their own thing, perhaps joining in Senior Squad time trials when it suits them.

Coaching for club level crews is available as is access to telemetry and the Senior Squad on mutually beneficial occasions throughout the season. We want to retain and encourage as many active athletes as possible at the club and recognise that not everyone will be available 24/7 – at Upper Thames, that is no bar to participation.

We welcome all ranges of ability and no one is left to fend entirely for themselves. Please contact the Captain to discuss how we can best help you fulfil your rowing goals.
