River Rowers Programme

Waterford Sports Partnership secured Women in Sport funding from the Irish Sports Council to run a rowing programme for teenage girls. The River Rowers programme was run over six weeks in conjunction with Blackwater Community College and Cappoquin Rowing Club.

The aim of the programme was to introduce eight female transition year students to their local rowing club and give them the opportunity to learn about all aspects of rowing.  After the six weeks three participants joined the local club where they are continuing to row on a regular basis.

The participants really enjoyed the six week programme.  Participant Sarah Geoghegan commented ‘the Rowing was amazing, and we had so much fun each week’. We would like to extend our thanks to Cappoquin Rowing Club for facilitating the girls and introducing them to a new sport.
