Junior Rowing Taster Days

City of Cambridge's Junior Squad regularly run taster days for 11-18 year olds (Years 7-13) interested in trying out rowing.

The taster day allows participants to try the key aspects of rowing training, including a session in a boat on the river, training on the indoor rowing machines and a core stability and fitness session. The day, which is coached by the squad's coaches and older junior rowers, culminates in a mini-rowing competition.

The next taster day will be on Friday 2 June 2017 10am–4pm, for ages approx 12–16. The cost is £25, payable on the day.
