Clubs often have different methods for doing this but British Rowing has developed and standardised this training to help clubs safely and effectively teach rowers. This workshop will specifically cover Capsize and Recovery. The aim is to provide a model for clubs to use when running their own Capsize and Recovery sessions.

Quick Facts

How much will it cost?

£52

How long is the workshop?

Four and a half to five hours.

Who can attend?

Anyone who will be running Capsize and Recovery sessions at their club.

This workshop is also a prerequisite for anyone wanting to attend a UKCC Level 2 Club Coach course (Sliding Seat).

How is the workshop structured?

This workshop has a mixture of both theory (including video) and practical; this will involve a practical session in a pool during which you will perform a Capsize and Recovery in a single scull, so you should be prepared to get wet. It is advisable to perform the capsize in your rowing kit to simulate a real-life event. Bring a change of clothes and a towel, and also a plastic folder to keep your course materials dry.
