Join Strathclyde Park Rowing Club
Routes to Membership
The route to membership depends on your age and rowing experience. Anyone born before 1 September 2005 will be a senior member and anyone born from this date onwards will be a junior. Junior rowers must be at least 12 years old.
Unless you are an experienced rower you will be required to take part in our "Rowstart", or junior "Learn to Row" programmes. More details on these courses are provided below.
If you are an experienced rower you can apply to join the club straight away, but you may find it useful to contact our Captain, or Junior Coach, for more details, especially if you're interested in training and racing in crew boats.
Some of our members are part of Scottish Rowing's "Performance Development Academy". This is a specialist talent identification programme that trains and develops athletes for the Scotland and GB Rowing Teams. All Performance Development Academy athletes benefit from access to world-class coaches and facilities that support their development. More information about this is given below.
In addition to the rowing membership categories, we have coach and associate members. There is no charge for coach membership, but by joining we will maintain your contact details and you will agree to abide by the club's Code of Conduct etc. Associate members are those who have an interest in the club (e.g. past rowing members, or relatives of members) who will be kept informed of rowing and social events.
For All Rowers
We ask that you can swim 50m in light clothing and to help with this we organise a few indoor capsize drills and swim tests at a local swimming pool.
