On or off the water, rowing can be a sport for all.
Water Rowing Schools
EAYR supports schools within easy reach of a river to establish or continue links with a Partner Rowing Club, allowing students to participate in water rowing activities during curriculum time.
Our water rowing schools also use rowing machines on the school site, and take part in EAYR indoor rowing challenges and competitions.
Indoor Rowing Schools
Our 'no river rowing clubs' allow schools further away from the river to take up rowing as an indoor sport. Rowing is integrated into the school PE curriculum, extra-curricular clubs, and students participate in EAYR indoor challenges and competitions.
Our indoor schools are also offered the opportunity to take part in water rowing taster sessions during the summer term, and summer camps based at our Partner Clubs in locations including Cambridge, Ely, Sudbury and Huntingdon.
School Summer Camps
Summer camps offer children the opportunity to experience full days of activity at our Partner Clubs. Starting with a healthy breakfast, participants will then spend a morning working on rowing skills on ergs, at an indoor rowing tank, or on the water. During the lunch break exciting STEM related activities offer a change of pace - from DNA sequencing strawberries to handling Antarctic ice cores - supported by our EAYR tech sponsors and members of the wider rowing community. Summer camp days end with a water rowing session, and a chance to put new-found skills to the test in a mini-regatta.
