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, under 23 and junior categories.

The Welsh Rowing World Class Start Centre is run by Liz Lewis, 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. Contact Liz Lewis for more details or to register yourself to be tested for Start please use this link.
