Joining Leicester Rowing Club


The next opportunities to join Leicester Rowing Club are updated here.  

Experienced Rowers

If you have previous rowing experience and are looking to move club or start up rowing agian please contact us to best see how we can fit you into the club.

Seniors (18+)

Senior Learn to Row sessions take place on Saturday mornings from 11:30am - 1pm and Thursday evenings 6:30pm - 8pm. If you are invited to join the club following any initial sessions, training will initially continue in these time slots so it's essential you can normally attend both time slots.  

To register your interest a attending a future session please Contact Us.

We welcome anyone into rowing via our Learn to Row courses but anyone joining needs to know that, compared to other sports, there is a significant time and effort commitment involved in rowing.  The Men's and Women's Senior racing squads train to race at competitions all year round and anyone joining will be expected to be of a good level of fitness and be ready to commit to a training plan.

Our club coaches will support you via coaching and training plans but rowing isn't the kind of sport where you can only come down occasionally and still expect to get into a regular boat and progress. We don't say this to put you off but there is a steep learning curve to rowing and all too often we lose new members due to the time, commitment and training needed to get to race level.
