Applications now open for British Rowing Coach Development opportunities

Do you love sport and want to develop as a rowing coach? Are you enthusiastic and a good motivator who enjoys getting the best out of people? Do you want to make a difference? We want to hear from you!


We recently announced a new suite of coach development initiatives, aimed at supporting coaches from under-represented groups who will inspire and lead creatively within our sport. The opportunities offered will provide coaches with the experiences, networks and support they need to excel in their coaching role and beyond.

And if you’ve ever wondered how to become a rowing coach, these opportunities are designed for you.

We’re delighted to announce that applications are now open for the first cohort!

How to apply

Start by having a look at the Coach Development Opportunities page where you will find further information about what we are offering and the benefits to you. You will also find the application link there.

Closing date for applications is 9am on Monday, 13 November 2023.

Please note: Places will be prioritised for women, for those coaches from a non-traditional rowing background and for coaches striving to deliver something new or ground breaking and are struggling to get started or be heard.

If you don’t fit one of these categories, please still apply. Any applications that are not successful this time will help us shape further development opportunities in the sport. We will respond to all applicants.
