Senior Men's Squad

Who we are

The Tyne Amateur Rowing Club’s Senior Men’s Squad currently comprises circa 30 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.

During the 22/23 Season the squad saw several wins both at Head Races and Regattas throughout all levels of the squad. This culminated in 12 athletes qualifying for Henley Royal Regatta with both the Wyfold 4- (winning two races) and Thames 8+ (winning one race) progressing through to the Thursday of the competition.


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). Optional training is available on most weekday mornings or Tuesday & Thursday evenings.

Squad members are encouraged to attend all water sessions. Members can make use of local gyms and fitness centres to complete the land training and submit their scores electronically to increase flexibility around the program. Athletes with a desire to do more are provided with a supplementary training programme to complete in their own time.

The squad competes at local and national levels throughout the year with the focus aiming towards bigger boats as we progress through the winter & summer after foundational work in smaller boats at the start of both the Head Season and Regatta Season.
The main events the senior squads target are:
  • Local LDS series
  • Rutherford Head
  • Tyne Head
  • Trent Head
  • Head of the River Race
  • Wallingford Regatta (ML)
  • Metropolitan Regatta (ML)
