The TSS women's squad is a small group that has been working hard to expand over the 2012-13 season. We field successful athletes at all levels of competition, from medals at Women's Henley and National Championships to numerous successes on the local regatta circuit.
The aim of the squad is to allow each athlete to achieve the most they can within the sport, without losing sight of the fact that we are out on the water to enjoy it.
A training programme is issued every month. Sessions are organised with a reasonable degree of flexibility so squad members can fit in other commitments and still meet realistic training targets of eight to ten sessions per week.
Land training is organised for weekday evenings and comprises weights, circuits, ergs, Rowperfects and cross training. Water outings are on Monday and Wednesday early mornings, as well as double outings on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
The women's squad competes at regattas and head races all year round. We mainly race in sculling boats but put out sweep crews as well, not least for the Women's Head.
Over the summer, the women's squad raced at numerous local and national regattas, with every member of the group recording a win in a sculling event in 2012. The 2013 season has got off to a great start with strong performances in local regattas, and gold and silver medals in Ghent for the sweep group.
A social sculling group will go out on Saturday and Sunday mornings over the summer break.
