Rowing at Perkins

Performance Pathway

Holiday Training

Due to the physiologically demanding nature of the sport, structured rowing training continues during holiday periods (other than the summer break).  Training provision will be set at an appropriate level for each age-group to continue the rowers’ development throughout the season.

Training Camps

At Perkins we hold two annual training camps.

The first is in October Half-Term for our Senior Squad (Y11-13), and is a non-residential camp on the river in Pangbourne, giving our rowers the chance to row on a beautiful, longer stretch of the Thames, perfect for long distance work.

The second is for Y10-13 rowers, during the Easter holidays at the venue of the 1992 Olympic Regatta, in Banyoles, Spain.  This camp is used to help develop our athletes and racing crews ahead of the summer regatta season, with the prestigious National Schools’ Regatta just six weeks away!
