Coxing and Coaching


The club is always looking for more coxes!  The cox(swain) is the person who steers the crew and gives them instructions.  It is a good way of getting some fresh air without a great deal of effort and of making new friends!  Coxing can be very rewarding - whether the crew you are a part of are elite performers or beginners at their first race!  The club is happy to teach people to cox!

If you would like to have a go at coxing - or maybe get back into it, please get in touch!


As the club expands, so do the number of coaches we need!  You don't need any rowing experience to become a coach, although it helps!  Like coxing, coaching can be very rewarding and is a good way of getting involved with the club!

All areas of the club need coaching help from the juniors right through to the veterans, so if you'd like to have a go, why not?
