Clubs are at the centre of the sport of rowing and British Rowing's Whole Sport Plan 2009-13 is committed to supporting volunteers develop the sport at their clubs. This section contains information designed to help you manage and develop your club.
As a rowing club or centre you can affiliate to British Rowing to receive a wide range of benefits. These can be further enhanced by accrediting to deliver certain programmes. Click on the boxes below for further information.
There are many sources of funding available for developing your club - including the Explore Rowing programme. For further information on Explore Rowing and other potential funding sources, please click on the boxes below. For further information on local funding pots you should talk to your local Participation Development Team Leader and your local County Sports Partnership.
We've collected together a series of links to areas of this site, documents and other external sites that might be helpful to you whilst you are looking to develop your club. There is also a series of case studies, so you can read about what some of our other clubs are up to. Don't forget you can also use the forums on the Explore Rowing website to talk to and get handy tips from other clubs.
If you would like some further support or advice on how to develop your club you should contact your local Area Participation Manager. Alternatively if you would like specific information about the Explore Rowing programme or the Facilities Development programme please contact Rich Stock, Explore Rowing Programme Manager or Alan Meegan, Facilities Consultant.
