The University of Warwick Boat Club is a large and highly active sports club with substantial ambitions. This year the club is attending 20 races across the length and breadth of the country during a 40-week season.
Whether novice or experienced, male or female, as a member of UWBC, athletes can expect to participate in a well organised rowing programme.
Our senior training programme offers rowers the opportunity to continue to compete at a high level and in fast, powerful crews. Experienced rowers at Warwick can expect several water sessions each week backed by a comprehensive range of other activities, such as core stability, weights, running and ergo sessions.
The novice training programme, which is open to all Warwick students, offers a comprehensive introduction to the art of rowing. From as early in the academic year as November, novices are invited to demonstrate their new talent at competitions across the country.
Our rowers, who benefit from regular technical advice and video feedback sessions, have shown some excellent performances over the past few years at a range of competitions, from regional to national level.
The club continues to excel, year on year, with the Men's 1st VIII finishing 7th in BUCS Head and pre-qualifying for Henley Royal Regatta. The Women's 1st VIII has seen drastic improvements, especially since the purchase of a new Janousek Eight, enabling them to not only qualify for Henley Women's Regatta, but also reach the Quarter-Finals- a club record.
Every year, talented new members bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm to a club that has a rapidly growing profile, both on and off campus. The typical UWBC rower is ambitious, committed and enthusiastic. If this is you, visit www.warwickrowing.org to find out how to be part of it.
