Spring 2022 Training Camp
27th September 2021
By popular demand, I am very excited to announce plans for a Spring 2022 Training Camp, which we will be looking to hold between the Winter Heads and Summer Regatta Seasons in April next year on 6th-10th April 2022.
More details are below, along with instructions for signing up / expressing interest.
This will be a chance for four days of rowing, training and coaching with multiple outings to build fitness, develop as a squad and as crews and to refine technique for the summer season. A springboard for our regatta racing campaigns if you will.
We have an excellent venue lined up for the camp on quieter stretches of the Thames on the Berkshire-Oxfordshire border between Goring and Pangbourne. A chance to treat ourselves after the long slog of a winter of tideway rowing with the opportunity to enjoy some rowing a bit further afield and away from tideway conditions with training and coaching on and off the water.
The site is about an hour and a half from the club, just over an hour from central London by public transport, so very accessible. We plan on this being a residential training camp (as the name suggests). To get the most out of it, we are really looking for people to attend for the full camp period (rather than dropping in for a couple of days), so will require a couple of days annual leave / family cover. The camp is open to all abilities and would really encourage you to come along and join in.

What I need from you at this stage is an expression of interest to get a good idea of numbers to guide costs and accommodation requirements which will help us to firm up all the relevant details for you.
Please use the link to sign up / express your interest. If you know that you definitely cannot attend, please also complete this so we can get a good estimate of our likely numbers.
Any questions, please log via the form or email me directly to find out more.
Really hope as many of you as possible will be able to join in and participate in an enjoyable few days away with the Club and some great rowing. If you've read this far and would like a bit of a sneak peak and some inspiration, check out this link from a previous TSS training camp to get an idea of the waters and scenery on the Pangbourne waters.
Look forward to hearing from you.
