Self-Employed Rowing Coach Vacancy

Rowing Coach Vacancy

Tyne United Rowing Club is seeking one or more self-employed Rowing Coaches to undertake coaching services for a number of the Club rowing squads, commencing as soon as possible.

The main requirement is for a coach to work with our junior co-ordinator and provide coaching to the junior squad, but the Club also has a requirement for a coach to be involved in coaching its senior squad and masters' squad crews. In addition, through our partnership with Northumbria University there is an opportunity to coach the Northumbria University squad at both experienced and development levels.

We are very pleased and grateful that Rowing Foundation have made a grant to TURC which will enable us to buy a new coxed quad/four for the junior squad, relieve the shortage of boats and enable us to get more of our growing junior squad out on the water. We are hoping that the boat will arrive soon and will post photos when it does. Watch this space!

  • J15 2x - Michael and Will (1st in class, 32nd overall)
  • J16 4x- Lucy F, Daisy, Hannah H and Dulcie (1st in class, 34th overall)

The following crews also took part:

  • J16 4x- Mathew R, Jed, Max (J15) and Ethan T-F (3rd in class, 21st overall)
  • J18 2x - Mark S and Josh H (2nd in class, 90th overall)

  • WJ18 2x - Emily and Hannah L (2nd in class, 121st overall)

Well done everyone particularly to Hannah H, Josh H, Elizabeth, Chas, Luke and Emily who have only learnt to row this year.  It is quite rare to have juniors rowing in the winter heads in their first year and Elizabeth and Luke only completed the short L2R course a week ago.

Thanks also to Max and Elizabeth for "rowing up" an age group to help complete crews. Several juniors were not available for the event as it is half-term.

TURC SBH results

Fantastic singles results of Ethan T-F, Michael, Will, Thomas H and Lucy F. Well done Ethan. Excellent attitude to training prior to the event as well.  It pays off. Ethan beat all other single scullers from all squads in the club!

Thomas - what did you have for breakfast? What a fantastic performance from somebody who has only just started rowing and only been in a single a few times. Michael and Will had better watch out!

Michael and Will - a very good performance with Michael winning the J15 1x class and Will not far behind. Considering Will has not rowed quite as much in a single that's brilliant. Let the battle continue!

Lucy F - well done battling it out with the older girls.  Good performance considering one of the rowers from another of our squads rowed into you during the race! Well done in teh quad in the morning as well winning the J16 4x- class

Wansbeck LDS / SBH: 1st October 2016

Coaches Report from Wansbeck

The junior squad had 5 wins on Saturday at Cambois Rowing Club on the Wansbeck.

The full TURC junior in the morning LDS results were:

  • 1st J16 2x Matthew Hudson and Tom Brewer
  • 1st J15 2x Michael Bessent and Will Viney
  • 1st WJ17 2x Lucy Fraser (WJ16) and Gia Smith
  • 1st WJ13 1x Charlotte Hudson
  • 1st J14 1x Ethan King
  • 3nd WJ16 2x Taylor Leck (J14) and Daisy Emerton
  • 5th WJ16 2x Hannah Easton and Shannon Elwell
  • 5th J15 4x+ Sam Law (J13), Max Forrest, Chas Ladhar, Tom Hyman Cox: Mathew Robinson
  • The TURC junior results in the afternoon SBH were:
  • 2nd WJ15 2x Lucy Cardno (J13) and Harriet Marshall
  • J16 4x- crew of Jed Anderson, James King, Matt Hudson and Ethan Taylor-Foley were the only crew in their category in the SBH but if LDS and SBH results are combined they were 2nd out of 3 crews.

Ethan King won a special prize for an outstanding performance for not only beating his J14 competitor but also beating the 3no. J15's in singles in the LDS.

All the results are fantastic.  Well done in particular to Charlotte, Hannah, Shannon, Chas and Tom in their first proper race and to everyone for steering so well along the tricky course.  I think that must be the first time for years that nobody has crashed at Wansbeck. It is a tricky course.
