Warrington Youth Rowing

Aren’t kids brilliant?

Always Oarsome are proud 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 Phil Lyons a masters student in Strength and Conditioning at Chester University.

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 everyones 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 next big challenge

In a couple of weeks a small group of children are heading to London to take part in the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships backed by British Rowing – we wish them all the luck in the world!

When you book an Always Oarsome Day you too can be proud to be supporting Warrington Youth Rowing.
