Warrington Youth Rowing

This organisation is driving the opening of empty rowing clubs across the UK for daytime access so that hundreds of school children can learn to row. Founded to offer rowing to young people who might otherwise might not have the opportunity to join a rowing club, Warrington YR now has two additional hubs in Liverpool and Northwich. In the space of five years, 28 secondary schools and 2 special schools now have over 300 students involved in rowing at local rowing clubs. The Gemini Boat Race award will support the WYR ambition to grow the number of schools involved through the appointment of a School Liaison Officer.



Warrington Youth Rowing was established in 2016 to open up the sport of rowing to young people who might otherwise not have the opportunity. Now in it's  fifth year, the charity  has three hubs across Warrington, Liverpool and Northwich incorporating 28 secondary schools and 2 special schools.

From September 2021,  300 students from disadvantaged backgrounds across these schools will be rowing every week, during the school day, at their local rowing club.

The Warrington Youth Rowing Model is built around the fact that many boat houses stand empty during the day with local school leaders keen to support adding something exciting and challenging to the curriculum for students away from school.

Warrington Youth Rowing receives provides the high level coaching required for both the water and land based sessions. The charity also trains the school staff that bring the students down to the clubs as Level 2 coaches so that in time, the project will not rely on any external funding.
