Training is typically held in the afternoons and on weekends. Training is never cancelled due to inclement weather - there is always indoor training. Training does continue over the winter months but the type of training and frequency will depend on weather, availability of boys and coaches, and commitment of the boys.
Boys train in their year groups and are supervised both on and off the water. During on-water training, the Club aims to have a Coach with one or more assistant coaches where possible.
At the start of a season training will focus on strength and fitness, gradually incorporating technique and skills training as the year progresses, while maintaining a focus on fitness. Strength and fitness training incorporates elements of running, Ergs, rowing and core body strength.
Boys are to wear Marist (not house) PE uniform (or MCCRC rowing clothing) and ensure they bring runners, a water bottle and hat to every training session.
The 2017-18 afternoon training times for each year group are mandatory sessions for all boys. Boys coxing may be allocated to different days to cox their respective crews.
