Rower Development Guide

The Rower Development Guide is British Rowing’s unique interactive tool to help you or your rowers develop. Helping you learn the appropriate athletic, physical literacy and knowledge to help you progress safely and enjoy the sport for longer.

We want to encourage rowers of all ages, sizes and abilities to progress at a rate that is suitable for them and to a level that is appropriate to what they want to achieve.

Set up your own personal guide and create your individual rower profile to show areas of your rowing and underpinning knowledge you may be able to develop.  Start by selecting your type of rowing, what water you row on and any adaptive needs to show information that is only relevant to you.
