Beginner’s nights will commence at Bann Rowing Club on Friday 1st of April 2011 at 5.30pm until dusk.

All beginners are welcome providing they can swim and are born in or before 1998 (only in exceptional circumstances will a child born in 1999 be considered and this will be at the discretion of the coaching staff)

During the Fridays in April beginners will be taught the basic rowing technique on land based rowing machines and also get the opportunity weather permitting to row in one of our training boats accompanied by a coach. Rowing is extremely fitness orientated and beginners will meet last season’s beginners and take part in light training with them such as running and warm up exercises.

From the first Friday in May beginners who wish to continue will be invited to apply to join the Bann Rowing Club and if successful will be offered a reduced membership fee of £50 to cover them through until 31/12/2011. These new members will continue to attend ever Friday evening during May and June. Beginners coaching will be suspended during July and August with the new members returning in September by which time they should have achieved the standard to be integrated into the existing crews.

Rowing even at junior level is an extremely labour intensive sport with all athletics required to train ever Saturday morning and at least one evening mid week. This might be a consideration if the athletic has other commitments or lives a distance from the boat club.

Bann Rowing Club is run solely on a voluntary basis with its committee and coaches giving up their free time to ensure the Club continues to thrive. Due to the pressure on facilities (ie boats) and the number of coaches the Club can only cope safely with an infinite number of new members each year.

The Club looks forward to welcoming potential new members on Friday 1st April 2011. Parents/ guardians of any juniors are encouraged to meet the coaches to get an insight into rowing at Bann.
