British Rowing Affiliated Clubs – Learn to Row coaches

Register your interest to join the British Rowing Coaching Pool! We are seeking expressions of interest from qualified rowing coaches to join our Coaching Pool to support clubs with Learn to Row courses and taster sessions post this summer’s Olympic and Paralympic Games and beyond.

As we approach the summer of 2024, British Rowing is gearing up for an exciting and ambitious initiative to introduce rowing to a wider audience than ever before. We are inviting qualified rowing coaches to play a key part in increasing capacity to support the rowing community.

What we’re aiming to achieve

The spotlight of the Olympic and Paralympic Games is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our sport to the wider public. We’ll be working with clubs to create opportunities for the communities in their area to give rowing a go.

With support from Sport England, we are looking to partner across the rowing community to create a step change in how individuals experience our sport for the first time, including how we facilitate a range of follow-on options so that people can stay connected in a way that works for them. Participating clubs will be a part of a campaign supported by practical resources, media promotion, fully funded mentoring and coaching grants.

Why your involvement matters

Your expertise, passion, and dedication can make a lasting impact on new rowers, fostering a positive and welcoming environment. We are looking for coaches with availability to support local clubs this summer in both paid and voluntary capacities.

Coaches are crucial to the success of this initiative. Many clubs list ‘availability of coaches’ as their biggest limiting factor when it comes to recruiting new members. We also know that many coaches are open to ad hoc opportunities in their area. We’re looking to create a coaching pool which makes it easier for us to match ‘supply and demand’.

How to get involved

If you’re interested in learning more about joining the coaching pool, please register your interest by 16 June:
