Junior Squad

We have a large and thriving group of young athletes across all age ranges and abilities. Our juniors come from all across the North East from as local as Ryton just down the road to all the way up in Morpeth!

Within a matter of years the junior squad at Tyne United has established itself as a highly competitive and successful junior squad in the North East. Our juniors have represented the club and won events at local regattas, regional trials and national events.

At Tyne United, we aim to give our juniors the best possible chance to find their potential, be that finding a fun activity for messing around on the river, getting fit through our indoor rowing training or aiming to compete at national and even international level through our club partnership with Durham University Boat Club.

Through our Junior and Schools Learn to Row courses, we take on new members each year from all secondary school age groups. Anyone wishing to join who can already row can contact the junior coordinator for more information.

If you are a school pupil in Gateshead and want to Learn to Row, there is also the possibility of trying rowing through your school – speak to your PE Department or School Sports Co-ordinator for more information.
