What We Do

Lady enjoying rowing imageBritish Rowing is the governing body for the sport of rowing (both indoor rowing and rowing on water). It is responsible for the training and selection of individual rowers and crews representing Great Britain, and for participation in and the development of rowing and indoor rowing in England. We are committed to ensuring that the sport continues to thrive from the grass roots right up to winning medals at the Olympic Games.

British Rowing has developed a Strategic Plan for 2015 - 2024 which defines our strategic objectives as an organisation including our Mission, Vision and Values.  A copy of our strategic objectives is available below (pdf file).

Rowing in Scotland and Wales is governed and organised nationally by Scottish Rowing and Welsh Rowing, but when it comes to representing Great Britain's interests to the international rowing federation, FISA, this comes under the British Rowing's umbrella.

British Rowing represents rowing's interests on the British Olympic Association (BOA), the British Paralympic Association (BPA), the Sport and Recreation Alliance (SRA), UK Sport, Sport England, government and non-governmental agencies and many other partner organisations.
