Wallingford Senior Women’s squad is a growing and aspirational group. The squad encompasses a broad range of experience and the aim is to develop that talent pool and win at the highest level; we are actively seeking athletes to join this group and particularly welcome those with rowing experience.
The squad trains six days a week, and the programme includes a mix of coached water sessions, ergos, weights, and strength and conditioning circuits. The training programme is flexible in order to accommodate the athletes’ work and family commitments, and we understand that athletes may need to train independently during the week, although we encourage people to train together at the club whenever possible.
Much of the early and mid-season work is in singles and small boats to help athletes better develop their technical skills and ability to move boats smoothly. As the season progresses there is a move towards crew boats, and the squad races at all major events. The ambition quite simply is to develop a highly motivated and focussed squad capable of winning at all levels, while thoroughly enjoying rowing out of Wallingford alongside a group of like-minded athletes. If you would like more information on the club, to take a look around the facilities, meet some of the club members and see if WRC is for you, then please contact the Club Captain for further information.
