The University of Birmingham Rowing Club is a student-run club which aims to support athletes whatever their level of experience or ambition. Year upon year the Rowing Club introduces rowing to over a hundred complete novices and through dedicated support and coaching it quickly brings them up to a very competitive level. Experienced athletes are also well catered for with professional support from the High-Performance Centre helping them to unlock their full potential.
Being a University sports club we foster an appropriate balance between academic and sporting excellence. Students and coaches work hard to ensure our members achieve their potential, not just out on the water, but in the exam hall as well. The main events the Rowing Club aims towards are BUCS Head and BUCS Regatta, where we consistently enter competitive crews at all levels: from beginner through to elite. As well as these events we also regularly enter national competitions such as Head of the River, Women’s Head of the River and both Henley Women’s Regatta and Henley Royal Regatta.
