We have a very active junior squad and all members up to age 18 are aligned to this squad. The juniors train separately from adult rowers due to different coaching requirements and child welfare considerations; this is why if you join with your child you will not learn on the same course. On occasion, juniors and seniors may row together under the direction of the Junior vice-captain. Please speak to the Junior vice-captain if you have a child who is interested in rowing.
Well done to Nathan Day and Noelle Stallard who received awards on Saturday from Dame Katherine Grainger on behalf of British Rowing at the River and Rowing Museum to recognise their great contribution to our club. Nathan Day won the Eastern Region Young Volunteer of the Year award for his work supporting the junior coaches and helping and coaching younger juniors at the club.
Noelle Stallard was commended as the Eastern Region Performance Coach of the Year for her work with the junior squad over more than a decade that has led to many regatta and head of river race wins.
Broxbourne Rowing Club and British Rowing takes its commitment to safeguarding the welfare of children in our sport very seriously. The Club follows the advice and policies of British Rowing our National Governing Body, who has just released a statement.
British Rowing – Our Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy, developed over many years of working with the CPSU and NSPCC, prioritises the welfare of children. Together with our Code of Conduct and associated safeguarding guidance documents, it is clear about the responsibilities of clubs, the conduct expected of adults in positions of responsibility for children in rowing, and provides examples of good and poor practice.
