Senior Women's Captain: Lara Cross

Senior Women's Coach: Patrick Hinton

We are Warwick Rowing's top women's squad
Welcome to the Senior Women’s section of the website. It aims to give you a brief overview of the programme and answer any initial questions you might have. If you have any other queries please get in touch with either Lara, the squad’s captain, or Patrick, the Senior Women’s coach.

Anyone joining the squad will have some degree of rowing experience, normally at least a year. At the moment we have a range of levels, ranging from those who have been rowing as juniors for numerous years, alongside those who are recent graduates of our novice system. Experience is not a decider of success though, and anyone who is keen and commits to the programme and the club will succeed within Warwick Rowing.

This year, the SW has faced a change in coach and attitude. This year, the squad will be focused on performance. Our rowers will be expected to train at least once a day, six days a week. Time will be split between our land training facilities on campus, as well as our boathouse at Barford. Joining the squad will require a large level of commitment, with many days involving two training sessions and a lot of your weekend spent on the river.

Having said this, we have rowers from every degree stream at each level of study who can handle the workload. Whilst requiring a certain degree of organisation, it is easily possible to enjoy every aspect of university life. The boat club is one of the largest clubs of campus and is heavily involved in charity work as well as having a busy social calendar.

Improving results on previous years is the main aim of the new programme, and we have a strong squad of returning girls who will foster this objective. If you feel that you might be interested in getting involved, please do get in touch.

If you are new to Warwick, but you have rowed before and would like to join our squad, then find us at the Sports Fair on Tuesday 2 October 2012 in the Sports Hall on Central Campus. If you miss that, or have any other queries, then contact Amber on seniorwomenscaptain@warwickrowing.org

The Senior Women's training plan for Weeks 1 to 3 can be found at Senior Women.
