The Novice Women’s squad is for girls that have not rowed before university, and are keen to take up the sport. The squad is inclusive and accommodating and is a fantastic way to meet people from all different backgrounds and courses. We guarantee that you will create some long-lasting friendships that will enhance your university experience, and make memories.


With the novice women, you will get to travel around the country and compete, as well as having the opportunity to take part in 2 training camps in January and over Easter holiday. 


The squad is split into performance and non-performance training squads. This allows for a balance between competitive and intense training and more casual rowing, catering for different fitness levels, schedules and desired outcomes from novice women rowing at the university.
