Each day our course begins at 10.00am and ends at 4.00pm, with the majority of the day spent on the water. Lead Coach and course instructor Simon Brown along with up to two other Monkton Instructors will be there on the water coaching from launches to ensure that the children are able to immerse themselves in all things rowing.  The training will take place in both sculling and sweep oar boats as the team make the most of Monkton's fleet of quality racing boats.

When were are not on the water the course can offer devoted land training which will include ergo technique, core strength and conditioning, nutrition advice and physical preparation. At the end of each day feedback will give on the day’s performance collected from state of teh art video and drone footage.
