COACHING

MCCRC has a very professional coaching staff comprised of parents, friends, current and former students. These dedicated followers of the sport of rowing contribute an enormous amount of time and energy to improve the skills of our club rowers.


VOLUNTARY HOLIDAY TRAINING

Many schools hold training camps during the holiday period. MCCRC prefers to hold voluntary holiday training. Voluntary holiday training is more beneficial for rowers and more manageable for parents and volunteers. 

The regatta season in term 1 is very short and often commences before the start of the school term . It is up to the discretion of coaches, in consultation with year groups, as to whether voluntary holiday training continues during holidays.
