West Region Junior Sculling Camp 2009
October 17th/18th saw the West Region hold its annual junior sculling camp, which this year took place at Wimbleball Lake on Exmoor.
A total of 19 juniors from West Region clubs attended the camp, which was designed primarily to help the juniors develop their sculling skill and technique in small boats.
The juniors were divided into three groups, and rotated around a series of activities over the course of the weekend. This included a session of ergo technique, a session developing ‘sculling skills’, and a session of coaching. In addition the juniors also competed in a 1500m time trial on the water.
The coaching was carried out by a combination of British Rowing coaching staff and club volunteers. Many thanks go to all those who supported with the weekend, including the South West Lakes Trust for hosting the event and the West Regional Rowing Council who provided financial support for the camp.
