Shrewsbury School

Rowing Camp

Monday 6 November 2017

Thirty-six Senior and J16 boys and girls attended the Boat Club’s training camp in Laias, Spain over the half-term exeat and gained a huge amount from the experience. 

The focus of the trip was on individual skill acquisition on the water and increased awareness of performance factors off the water.

With a packed trailer of small boats, the order of the day was generally two water sessions in small boats and one session on the land. The water conditions were fantastic, with nine kilometres of mostly flat water available to spread out the flotilla.

Off the water, the excellent catering provided much needed sustenance and access to a classroom was put to good use with talks most evenings by either the coaches or Upper Sixth pupils sharing their insight to getting the most out of the seasons to come.

The boys and girls were fantastic ambassadors for the Club and School in the way they handled themselves throughout the week, and a huge thank you goes to them and the attending coaches for making it such an enjoyable trip.
