Schools Blades is a course focussed on practical skills, and is as applicable to those individuals who have never rowed or sculled before as it is to those who are experienced in the sport.
The majority of the course is an active experience with participants empowered to perform effectively in different boat types and to demonstrate control, fluency and consistency of stroke. Safe and correct technique is also taught on the Indoor Rowing machine, which helps support the development of young people’s personal learning and physical development.
Participants undertaking this course are usually studying GCSE or A-Level Physical Education, as Rowing is now an option for study. Although this course is not limited to GCSE or A-Level study and would fulfil a valuable introduction to the sport.
We at the centre work with local Schools and run the annual 'Welsh Schools Indoor Rowing Championships' to provide a base of learning for pupils in a safe environment, while pushing the boundaries of their learning in a safe environment.
