Go Row Indoor Schools

British Rowing has teamed up with education experts to create the Go Row Indoor Schools programme, helping schools with everything they need to support more young people access the sport.


Go Row Indoor Schools Platform

This free to access platform includes a set of resources carefully crafted to give teachers everything they need to teach indoor rowing, from basic technique videos and tutorials through to sets of lesson plans, student guidance and advanced training techniques. All of the platform’s free-to-use resources are linked to the Physical Education National Curriculum, and include School Games resources, virtual challenges, case studies and good news stories.

Secondary School Indoor Rowing Teacher Training

In partnership with London Youth Rowing and with expert input from the PE Scholar, British Rowing is excited to have launched its new secondary school teacher training course for indoor rowing. The online course, which can be completed in as little as an hour or in your own time, offers teachers a first insight on how indoor rowing activity can be included within their lesson planning and delivery for KS3 units of work and up with orientation to the materials on offer.

The course includes lesson activity ideas, an introduction to indoor rowing equipment and technique, using race systems (Concept 2 only) and a set of 60 mix and match cards covering warm up and circuit training exercises suitable for teachers to use with Key Stage 3 and 4 classes or even for pupils to design and run their own sessions to develop teamwork and leadership skills.

The launch of this resource has seen input from all partners, in addition to insight from teachers in the secondary school sector and senior Physical Education lecturers.

Thanks to funding from Sport England, the course is able to be offered free to the first 500 secondary school teachers in England who enrol.

School Games Organiser And Event Support

British Rowing is invested in secondary education and has the expertise to support innovative event delivery across England and the School Games Programme. It is our aim that rowing – especially indoor rowing – becomes a staple of British Physical Education for Key Stage 3 and 4 students around the country.

If you are a School Games Organiser or a school looking to deliver indoor rowing events, we are here to help. With the recent changes to how school sport will be delivered under the new government guidelines, indoor rowing can still be the perfect sport option to deliver with your students either new to the sport or experienced. With the capability to easily connect your machines, set up online races, challenges, and deliver events remotely, we can help young people participate virtually as well as in-person against other schools both local and nationwide.
