Learn to Row

We encourage new people to try rowing – whatever their age or experience.  

Juniors learn in a dedicated Learn to Row group with a specialist coach, Andy Sloper who has many years experience teaching children to row.  The course takes place on Sunday mornings at 10:00am until 11:30am.  Usually Juniors in this course become competent rowers within a school term and are then ready to join the main Junior squad, rowing at 10am on a Saturday morning. We have the largest Junior section in the South West and so we have to run a waiting list.  You can enrol your son or daughter on this from age 11 to 16 by contacting juniorcoordinator@darttotnes.co.uk. Beginners are offered three free trial sessions before we ask you pay a subscription (currently £188 a year for Juniors, 2023 – 2024).  Here are the notes we give to parents of new rowers, for information.

Occasionally we also offer Taster Days for Juniors in school holidays.
