This course provides a certificate of competence in generic coxing skills. The certificate is not a formal qualification, however it can be used within a club to provide evidence of general coxing competency, to supplement the club’s own specific training.

    Went to the 3 Feb. Rowing Technique at Mounts Bay Sch. Good course content and plenty of discussion around theory and recommended style! It was interesting to note the input of British Rowing (ARA).There were over 30 club members in attendance most if not all found it a pleasant and useful session. Helen Bowkett was an excellent tutor. Recommended.
