*For those who have already completed a L2R course with MBC or similar course with another club within the last 2 years and are interested in joining the MBC Junior programme. The minimum age to attend one of our junior courses is 12 years old.
Your child will need a snack and water bottle each day as they will spend much of the day on the water/outside therefore it is important to keep hydrated and maintain energy throughout the day.
You will need basic outdoor PE kit to take part. It is important to pack enough kit for 2 separate outdoor sessions a day and a light waterproof in the event of rain. A change of socks is important as they can get wet whilst getting in and out of boats. Easter weather can be very varied so please pack accordingly. If we are fortunate enough to get some sun, then sunscreen is advised especially when on the water.
Days are split into 2 sessions with a break in between for a snack and a rest.
Please note that on booking you will be required to confirm your child can swim 100m in light clothing and tread water for 2 minutes.
The cost for the camp is £275 for the week and can be paid through our online booking system by clicking the "Book Now" button below.
There will also be a reduced fee for siblings attending the same week of camp with a deduction of 10% off the total fee.
The lead coaches for the week will be fully endorsed by Molesey Boat Club, who are insured and fully disclosed. We look forward to receiving your application.
At the end of the course, each child will be given a letter detailing the next steps. All athletes who have completed a L2R course can sign up for an Intermediate course later in the summer break. Athletes aged 13+ (joining Yr9 in September) will be invited to join the MBC junior squad if they wish to do so. We look forward to meeting you all and are excited to welcome you along to Molesey Boat Club, we hope for a fantastic week of rowing, learning new skills and meeting some new friends along the way.
The Wednesday before the course starts there will be an online meeting hosted by the lead coach. The meeting will provide more information of the courses and be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
During this time, MBC is operating under strict COVID procedures which course attendees are expected to follow. More detail on these procedures will be sent nearer the time.
You should not attend if showing any symptoms of COVID-19.
Please make sure you inform us if you or anyone else in your household exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19.
