About Development Services

Welsh Rowing is working with partners to increase the total number of participants in rowing. Further to this there is an aspiration that the growth will be targeted to include hard to reach groups and make rowing more representative of the community.

The broader workforce in rowing is the lifeblood of the sport and Welsh Rowing is determined to ensure they are appropriately trained, motivated and most importantly valued. We will increase the number of new volunteers and retain current volunteers. This involves a focus on all workforce roles excluding coaches who have their own objective.  

A key part of our community are our Umpires. The Welsh Rowing Umpires committee holds regular training courses for those wishing to begin their umpriing journey. To register your interest in this, please contact our Development Officer. 

Welsh Rowing runs a series of CPD sessions, aimed at volunteers, coaches and athletes. Details of these are included in our monthly newsletter which you can sign up to on the homepage. 

A copy of the Welsh Rowing Development Plan 2015-2019 can be found here.  The next Development plan for 2020 onwards is in development. 

Welsh Rowing offer corporate away days to businesses and groups that are looking for team building or social activities.  The details can be found here.
