Juniors (J12-J18)

Eton Excelsior Junior Squad

The age range for our Junior squad is 11 to 18 years. Squad members learn to scull in singles, doubles and quads and have fun at local regattas and club events. Older squad members aim to compete at local, national and International regattas, in both sculling and sweep events.

The Junior squad was established in 2001 and has evolved very successfully since then, across the whole age range, with each season building on local and national success of the season before. Our Juniors have competed at the National Schools Regatta, Henley Women's Regatta and the British Rowing Championships. Some have had the honour to represent England and Great Britain in international competitions.

Key factors in our growth and success are that we maintain a sense of fun and cameraderie and aim to provide opportunities for all. Rowing with EERC is a great opportunity for children to meet others, develop teamwork and social skills while getting fit and having fun!

New Junior Members

Please contact the Junior Membership Secretary to talk about enrolling your son or daughter, regardless of their rowing experience; none or lots, we'd love to have a chat and answer your questions! We run several trial months throughout the season. Following the trial we invite all participants to join a development squad which operates hand in hand with the main junior squad.

Training

The training regime for our Juniors depends on age, ambition and ability. Land and water-based training sessions are available six days a week depending on season and weather conditions.

Racing

We encourage Juniors to compete in Winter Head races and Summer Regattas for which they need to buy British Rowing membership. Additional racing fees are announced on each event's web site.

Club Welfare

Clubmark

We are proud of the safe and quality environment which we provide for our Juniors. The club is Sport England Clubmark accredited. EERC ensures its members' welfare and encourages enjoyment and lifelong rowing involvement.

Child Welfare

We take child welfare seriously at EERC and expect all adult helpers and coaches to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check; formerly called a CRB check.

We have a Welfare Officer to ensure that that the club complies with Child Protection requirements and to act as a focal point for related concerns.
