DAY OF INSIGHT AND CANDOUR FROM THE ATHLETES 

 

Hosted by Upper Thames BC, Rowing Homecoming is designed to debrief events in Paris from both the Women's and Men's squads. If we get a collective total of 54 school rowers involved; the event will be hosted by 11 of the GB Olympic and Paralympic Squads.

 

Life lessons are learnt in triumph and adversity. We hope that we have medals to show but we know that the participants from your school will get to learn what life is like as an elite athlete.

You get to ask questions and then pose for photos with the GB Rowers before you get to show them what you can do.

TRAINING SESSIONS WITH THE ATHLETES

 

Rowing Homecoming provides your team with a range of fun activities with tips from the athletes; starting with an erg relays.

Then take to either an eight, six of you joined by two GB Rowers, or in a Quad where three of you have your own GB Rower. We then get you out on the water to show the GB Rowers what you have got. We will be using Eights and Quads provided by Upper Thames BC, no need to bring any equipment.

The 40 minute session will culminate in a 300 metre sprint where you take on the 

ultimate Rowing challenge...Beat the Medallist.
