Go Row Indoor Schools
British Rowing Go Row Indoor Schools programme is available to support schools with everything they need to help more young people access the sport and indoor rowing.
Go Row Indoor Schools Platform

All of the platform’s free-to-use resources are linked to the Physical Education National Curriculum, and include School Games resources, a Junior Leader award, virtual challenges, case studies and good news stories.
Secondary School Indoor Rowing Teacher Training
In partnership with London Youth Rowing and with expert input from the PE Scholar, British Rowing is excited to have launched its new secondary school teacher training course for indoor rowing. The online course, which can be completed in as little as an hour or in your own time, offers teachers a first insight on how indoor rowing activity can be included within their lesson planning and delivery for KS3 units of work and up with orientation to the materials on offer.
The course includes lesson activity ideas, an introduction to indoor rowing equipment and technique, using race systems (Concept 2 only) and a set of 60 mix and match cards covering warm up and circuit training exercises suitable for teachers to use with Key Stage 3 and 4 classes or even for pupils to design and run their own sessions to develop teamwork and leadership skills.
Thanks to funding from Sport England, the course is able to be offered free to the first 500 secondary school teachers in England who enrol.
