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.

Our head coach is Chihiro Calvin. A UKCC Level 2 coach (in both Rowing and Strength & Conditioning), Chihiro has a long pedigree with clubs both on and off the Tideway and her previous crews have an enviable list of medals and pennants to their name.

Our philosophy is based on the following:

  • 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 HRR).

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.
