How can I join?
In order to join our programme all candidates must participate in one of our Learn to Row courses.
We typically run these during October half-term, Easter break and during the Summer holidays.
Our next Learn to Row courses are being held on:
These are 5 day intensive courses, which teaches all candidates the basic sculling technique and gives them an in-depth knowledge of the sport.
If you are interested in signing up to one of these courses, please contact our Junior Learn-to-Row coordinator Marcus Hoskin via our enquiry page: Junior LTR enquiry
What if I can already row?
If you can already row and are interested in changing over to our club, please contact Head of Junior Rowing, Chris Griffiths via our enquiry page: Junior enquiry

The squad is a racing squad and aims for all juniors to train for and compete at appropriate Head races or Regatta races with crews being selected to ensure all targets are realistic and achievable
The squad therefore enters a range of Head and Regatta races the most important of which are:
- School's Head of the River
- The Scullery
- Junior Inter-Regional Regatta (Thames London)
- National School's Regatta
- Henley Royal Regatta
- Women's Henley
Representative Junior Crews:
All squad members will be assessed for inclusion in crews participating in the Thames London Region Trials for inclusion in that team for the Junior Inter Regional Championships.
In addition Kingston RC Junior Policy is to identify any outstanding individual talent that may be of the standard to participate in selection trials for the British Junior International teams selected each year from J16-18 year groups. This identification will be made from the J15 year onwards. International teams included are the Great Britain Junior team, the Coupe De Jeunesse and the GB France match
