Progression and Development

All athletes in the Development Squad are assisted to become proficient scullers and experienced competitors whilst working to earn a place in our Junior crews.  This will involve them in progressively more demanding training and participation in open competitions under the Britsih Rules of racing.  

All our athletes aspire to take up a place with Marlow Juniors.  We recognise that becoming a member of Squads which compete at national level will require a high level of commitment from the athletes and from their parents. We will normally discuss progress in the sport and individual circumstances with parents several times before a decision is made to offer a place in the Junior Squad.


If you would like to find out more about starting out in the sport at Marlow, please contact us to request a copy of our briefing notes.   When you write, let us know the name of the aspiring sculler, the school they attend,  date of birth and something of their sporting track record.
