Development Squad

Who we are

The Development Squad is generally a mix of those who have moved up the Novice Squad in previous years (or this year straight from
Learn to Row courses) and those who have rowed elsewhere and have moved to the club, but need some further coaching and experience before moving up another level.

The Development Squad members train hard with a minumum of two sessions a week - the regular ones are on Wednesday evenings (on land in winter) and Sunday mornings, with others fitted in as agreed week by week. Training is a mix of water outings, rowing machine sessions and some flexibility, fitness and core strength work.


The majority of the Development Squad members want to race competitively and we encourage this. In the winter there are a whole series of head races (time trials) around the region leading up to big events in London in March each year. 
In the summer there are local regattas (with side-by-side races) here at Tyne and nearby at Chester-le-Street, Cambois, Tees, Durham, Talkin Tarn and Hexham, plus lots further afield.

Squad members can also enter the
Sunday League series around the region for newer rowers - first Sunday of the month March to October. Not to mention the Great Tyne Row, all 25km of it in (Newburn to Tynemouth), usually in late August or early September.
