Cygnet has an established coaching set-up, as befits a club known for bringing on new oarsmen, as well as competing at a wide range of events. This is part of the package offered to active members, and is paid for from membership fees.

Tim Male (former GB lightweight medalist) is our Head coach. Tim began with the club at the start of the 2016-17 Head season and is principally employed to develop technique on the water.

Sue Cole (UKCC L2) coordinates the coaching team. Sue draws up our training strategy, and circulates a realistic training plan in consultation with Tim and the captaincy. This is based on our currently agreed objectives, which are that:

  • Cygnets enjoy rowing
  • Cygnet continues to be well-represented at Heads and Regattas
  • those that are willing and able to commit are supported in going as far as they can (including Henley RR).

Sue coaches off- and on- the water, including from the cox’s seat. In the summer season when there is more on-the-water time, we ‘draw-down’ additional coaching resource as required.

Our Learn to Row courses are lead by Alan Cox, a former captain and club stalwart. Alan has no formal coaching qualifications but a lifetime of rowing experience and especially loves to coach complete novices.

In the winter season, we have regular circuit training (alongside Barnes Bridge Ladies), which is conducted by Maxi Scibor-Rylska, a qualified personal trainer who is also a high performance rower.
