Learn to Row in Cambridge

Champion of the Thames Rowing Club Cambridge (Champs)


Inductions will resume after the clocks change in spring to take advantage of the longer evenings.  If you are interested, please read the details below and complete the form. Our Inductions Officer will be in touch with you shortly!


We are a friendly club that finds a balance between life and rowing, with most crews going out twice a week (usually a weekend morning and a weekday night) complemented by optional indoor training sessions (rowing machines, weights, core training and yoga). 


Please note…

  • Inductions usually take place on Monday and Friday evenings from 18.00 or 18.30 (depending on daylight).

  • The first three sessions are free ‘taster’ sessions. If you want to continue after the taster sessions, you will be asked to pay £70 for the remaining inductions sessions.

  • The induction sessions will involve indoor training on ergometers, use of the training ‘tub’ boat, and sweep rowing in coxed boats of 8 (and occasionally 4). All outings will be supervised by coach on the bank.

  • The induction is for sweep rowing (one blade each) and does not include scull rowing (two blades each).

  • At the end of your induction course, you will have the opportunity to join the club, on the condition that the coaches are confident that you are ready to join a crew and you are able to commit to their sessions.

  • Inductees should be aware that most club members row at least twice a week (one weekend morning and one weekday night).
