Delivering Rowing – a training course for young people

British Rowing is launching a brand new training course, enabling young people to deliver rowing sessions under the supervision of a qualified coach.

Following changes to the UKCC Level 2, people under the age of 18 are no longer able to train as rowing coaches.


The new 16-hour training course – Delivering Rowing – is mixture of classroom-based theory and hands-on practical activities, delivered by a British Rowing Coach Educator.

The course will see young people aged 16-17 learn how to plan, deliver and assess a rowing session, conduct a risk assessment, explain proper rowing technique, and fully understand the role of a coach and session facilitator.

Applicants should have:

    • Participated in a man overboard, capsize or water rescue drill which has been run through a club or school by either a qualified tutor or a UKCC Level 2 Coach (rowing or water sports-related)
    • Attended as a minimum a Learn to Row Course Stage 1 & 2 / Explore Assistant Workshop or be regular rowers
    • A valid British Rowing membership

More information about the course – including sessions locations and costs – will be posted on the Education & Training section of the British Rowing website.

Without our members, we wouldn't be able to provide the guidance, support and emergency funding that we have been able to during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider continuing to support our sport by renewing or purchasing your British Rowing membership today.
