The club has an active juniors section, where we hope to develop young people into becoming successful, strong rowers that can take part in the club’s races and events. Our aim is to see young rowers through to the point that they can continue their rowing as an adult with the club.

The purpose of the section is to develop a flow of young rowers to maximise the clubs success in competitive racing.

The following programme is in place;

Junior Club Night: Thursdays 5.30 to 7.00 March to October (Juniors under 18 do not row in the darkness)

Coaching: Junior Coaching takes place with a coach for each boat on the water. Adult support is present to support shore based activities.

Coaching Programme: The programme is controlled by the coaches on an on going basis by the Junior Coaches depending upon abilities, experience, numbers and the race programme.

Racing: Racing within the WSRA league programme
Friendly Races: Thurs Evenings and Weekends. A programme to race
local clubs will be developed on a monthly basis. Likely competitive clubs being Ynys Mon, Caernarfon, Beaumaris and Pwllheli. These races can be at the clubs or a central location eg Llanberis.

Winter Programme: Junior Rowing will be arranged on Saturdays and
Sundays, November to March.
