Active Row

I feel stronger and healthier. Through rowing and other exercises, I feel more confident with myself than I was before. - Active Row participant

Active Row is London Youth Rowing's flagship programme, supported by Sport England and Tideway. The goal is to get 8,000 more young people in state secondary schools, active across London through indoor rowing clubs, competitions and on-water rowing opportunities.


Breaking Barriers

From the programme I’ve developed multiple skills that would be useful in the future. I’ve learnt how to organise my time efficiently and I’ve also learnt how to work in a team and be productive and hardworking. - Asiya, Year 10

Breaking Barriers combines rowing and mentoring, in groups and 1-2-1, to support young people in achieving their further education and career goals.


Alternative Provisions

For months Joseph struggled settling in. We hadn't seen any sign of self-control until the point where we decided to take him rowing. Rowing was a great contributor to his beahviour turn around in school, so much so that he started a new mainstream school in May. - Rubert Jonkers, Assistant Head at New Regent's College

Alternative Provisions rowing provides on-water rowing opportunities to young people who have been excluded from mainstream schooling, supported by The Vintners' Company.



NJIRC was one of the most fun and amazing days I have had this past year, I really enjoyed competing with my friends and receiving medals at the end. An amazing time! Hams, Year 9

Our racing squads provide opportunities for young people to further their rowing careers, while the competitions we host throughout the year are intended to provide an inclusive racing atmosphere for all. We row at Thames Tradesmen Rowing Club, Globe Rowing Club, 1863 Club and Mossbourne Federation Rowing. Each year, we host the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships (NJIRC), providing a platform for 2000 rowers from competitive and grassroots backgrounds to experience the excitement of high level competition.
