Learn to Row

Junior

Every year in July the club runs a Learn to Row Camp for beginners aged between 11 years old and 15 years old.   Applications for the Camp can be made at any time.   The maximum number we can take is 48 and over the past few years applications have exceed that number.     Applicants are taken on a first come basis.

We run two Camps in the same week, Monday to Friday and each Camp runs for three hours per day – the Morning Camp from 10am to 1pm and the Afternoon Camp from 2pm to 5pm.

The cost of the Camp is €80 (subject to change).

Enquiries should be made in the first instance by email to secretary@shandonboatclub.com.

In addition to the Summer Camp we also take in junior beginners in the months of September, October and November.

Adult

The club runs adult Learn to Row courses from time to time.   These courses are aimed primarily at adults who have never rowed and who are interested in rowing for recreational rather than competitive purposes.     Applications are invited from any adult over the age of 20 provide that they can swim.

The courses typically take place in the off season between November and April and run over a number of weekends.     We rarely run more than one such course per annum.

Applications are taken at any time and names kept on a contact list until the next course is organised.   Courses typically cost €80 (subject to change).

Enquiries should be made in the first instance by email to secretary@shandonboatclub.com.
