‘Try Rowing’ Programme at Blackwater Community School

Published: January 18, 2019

On Thursday 17th January, Blackwater Community School, Lismore took part in a Rowing Ireland ‘Try Rowing’ Workshop organised by Waterford Sports Partnership and facilitated by Mary Maloney of rowing Ireland.

The programme is designed for Transition Year students to become skilled and knowledgeable in the sport of Rowing and to become confident in organising and coaching sessions for young people. Twenty one TY students participated in the 3 hour workshop which is a mix of theory & practical work, the group were a pleasure to work with as they engaged fully in the workshop and each student had the opportunity to coach and demonstrate the skills of Rowing. The students will now work coach sessions with the 1st years in the school.

A big thank you to; Cappoquinn Rowing Club for the use of the five ergometers, the staff of Blackwater Community School who helped coordinate the workshop, and to Mary Maloney from Rowing Ireland for delivering a most enjoyable workshop. Best of luck to all involved in rolling out the programme in the coming weeks!
