PHSG Learn to Row

This term students from Plymouth High School for Girls have been involved in the Learn to Row Programme run by Kevin Sellar the Plymouth School Sports Partnership's Community Rowing Coach. The sessions have been at the Mountbatten Water Sports Centre on Tuesday Evenings from 4.15-6.15pm for five weeks.

Students initially received safety training and progressed on to working in ‘Virus' rowing boats. They all made dramatic progress throughout the course practicing around the water in front of the Mount Batten Centre.

Students were also able to experience rowing in a Gig which they took out into Plymouth Sound. This was a completely different experience requiring team work in comparison to the individual work they had been practicing in the Virus boats.

In addition to the work on the water students have also been tested on their skills in the water during their ‘Swim Test'. Not only did they have to complete a timed swim, they were also tested on their ability to capsize a boat safely.

At the end of the course a regatta will be held where students compete in fun games and activities which test the skills they have learnt. The students are also encouraged to join a local rowing club to continue to improve their skills.
