Senior Men's Squad

The Tyne Amateur Rowing Club’s Senior Men’s Squad currently comprises circa 40 members who range in age and experience. The squad is for rowers and scullers who want to train and race competitively at both local and national level.

All athletes are coached both in crews and individually to enable rapid progression of both fitness and technique. The squad is open to all male rowers with experience of sweep rowing and/or sculling who wish to race at a competitive senior level.

Training

The training schedule is designed to enable the squad to compete at the highest levels possible whilst maintaining a balance of work, education and family commitments. The training program has 6 'core' training session (Monday evening, Wednesday evening and double sessions on Saturday and Sunday).

It is expected that squad members attend all water sessions, however many members make use of local gyms and fitness centres to complete the land training and submit their scores electronically. The athletes with a desire to do more are provided with a supplementary training program to complete in their own time.

The squad competes at local and national levels throughout the year with the focus on bigger boats through the winter with the goal for many being competing at the Head of the River. Through the summer the goal for the squad is Henley Royal Regatta for the more experienced members and Durham Regatta for those less experienced.
