Most of the UK’s top athletes have been associated with their chosen sport since they were knee high to a grasshopper. At MKRC, we recognise the importance of encouraging youngsters to take up our sport and we welcome members from the age of 16 +.
Juniors can chose to join MKRC from the age of 16 or to join the Action 4 Youth Rowing Club, which takes children from a younger age and operates out of the Watersports Centre on Caldecotte North Lake. Juniors from the age of 16 are encouraged to join MKRC where they will benefit from being integrated in to the Development and then Senior squads and from the coaching they receive from experienced Seniors.
Most Juniors are soon enjoying the opportunities available to them such as racing at regattas and head races, as well as structured training sessions on and off the water. They may also take advantage of the Recreational sessions on a Tuesday afternoon in the school holidays.
