Why volunteer in rowing?

If you’re a rowing fan and want to support the sport in Wales, we are always looking for individuals to help us at Welsh Rowing. Volunteers can help on or off the water, at clubs or events.

Whether you’re a rower or ex-rower yourself, you’ve got loved ones who are passionate about rowing, or you’re looking for a way to give back to your community, have a look at the options below or get in touch to see how you can help.

Coaches and assistant coaches

Coaches run training sessions, improve rowers’ technique, and ensure everyone is safe and progressing towards their goals. Anyone over 18 can volunteer as an assistant coach without qualifications, or complete one of our training programmes if you’d like to coach independently.

More about becoming a coach



The Welsh Rowing Umpires Committee regularly organises training courses for those wishing to become an umpire, and CPD for existing umpires. This role is key to the successful functioning of events, and some would argue, the best seat in the house!

Event helpers 

Every rowing event needs a surprisingly large number of people to help it run smoothly and successfully. Volunteer tasks range from marshalling visitors to promoting the event on social media to encourage more people to attend, so there’s something to suit every skill set.
