We use our passion for rowing

to inspire people to make healthier choices

Rowing Experience Events

Your team will become an Always Oarsome squad for the day. Together we will experience the sport of rowing in an event designed just for you.

From a relatively relaxing paddle on the river to a fiercely competitive day of challenges culminating in an Oarsome Regatta with medal ceremony, and anything in between.

Take your team out of the workplace and out of their comfort zone, and into the world of rowing.  The ultimate team sport, rowing will bond your team members in a fun and challenging day. They’ll leave the event with new skills, new respect for a sport they’ve probably only every seen on TV, and a feeling of exhilaration for having achieved something very special together.

 

Rowing Programmes for health

Team day - getting ready for the race!Being outdoors. Learning something new. Being active, and part of a crew who work together. Focusing on moving together. The rhythmic action that makes a boat flow through the water. All of these things combine to make rowing an excellent activity to promote physical and mental health.

We work with groups of people who struggle with mental health concerns and conditions such as autism and other difficulties. Contact us today to see how being part of the Always Oarsome squad can help.

Wellbeing Workshops

Always Oarsome is not just about rowing on the water (although this is the best bit!). Our range of wellbeing focused workshops can be delivered to your teams at your premises, or pretty much anywhere!

For these events, we take the life changing lessons we’ve gained from rowing and make them applicable to you and your teams. Designed to massively improve wellbeing and resilience for the workplace and for life!

You may even want a mix of on and off water events!

Rowing – what a weird and confusing language!

                                                                             Part One - red and green So how often do you hear this in sport? “I was last over the finish line but I still won!” Well this is exactly what happened to me on Saturday at Warrington Regatta....

 Wham! (‘I’m your man’)

Just watching a bit of TOTP from 1985 - to the youngsters out there that’s Top of the Pops - a British music chart tv programme produced by the BBC and I do believe it was broadcast on a Thursday evening around 7.30pm? It was akin to ’Sounds Like Friday Night’...

Steady. Consistent. Synchronicity. Teamwork.
