Aren’t kids brilliant?
Always Oarsome isproud to support Warrington Youth Rowing.
This is a programme introducing school children in Warrington to the best sport in the world – ROWING. (Well we would say that wouldn’t we?)
Backed by Henley Steward’s Charitable Trust, award winning volunteer coach Richard Sinnott from Warrington Rowing Club and Ben Dunne the head teacher at Penketh High School have formed this fantastic collaboration along with a team of coaches and ambassadors.
Open to all Warrington secondary schools eight schools have signed up meaning that around 120 children aged fourteen and fifteen take to the water each week.
This is a huge commitment on everyone’s part organising timetables to ensure the children don’t fall behind in their studies, transport to and from the rowing club, supervision during said transportation as well as on the water and of course reminding the children to bring appropriate kit and snacks for each session.
As well as the weekly sessions there has also been an inter schools regatta where children could showcase their new skills whilst racing others their own age and an indoor rowing challenge where twelve children at a time could race each other on the indoor rowing machines whilst their friends cheered them on. Both competitions will hopefully become annual events.
The new playground
This year has seen the launch of Mersey Youth Rowing which will be changing young lives in Merseyside through rowing, based at Mersey Rowing Club.
Team Always Oarsome absolutely love being involved with this programme as coaches and proud supporters.
When you book an Always Oarsome Day you too can be proud to be supporting Warrington Youth Rowing.
