World Class Start Centre

Welsh Rowing has a stable performance programme that has developed significantly over the past four years, with a demonstrable record in the identification and development of rowers. The programme is rower centred in its philosophy and has produced rowers that have represented Great Britain at World and European championships across senior, para, under 23 and junior categories.

The Welsh Rowing World Class Start Centre is run by Emily Doherty and assisted by Owain Jones, supported by British Rowing. The criteria for Start rowers can be found here. In addition, we have other rowers who are performing at a high level but fall outside of the Start criteria training within our Start Centre, these are rowers who fulfill the criteria to trial for GB at Junior, Para, Senior or Under 23 level. Contact Emily Doherty for more details or to register to be tested for the Start programme please register on British Rowing's website.
