What is a Go Row Indoor Club?

A Go Row Indoor Club is a community rowing club or university that uses existing facilities to expand their rowing offer, connect with the wider local community, and help get more people active through indoor rowing.

With trained Go Row Indoor instructors and access to Go Row Indoor marketing resources, your club will have all the support it needs to promote and deliver new indoor rowing fitness classes at times when indoor rowing machines and gyms are not typically being used by club members.

  • Attract new people to your club
  • Generate additional revenue for your club
  • Grow membership through indoor rowing membership offers
  • Be part of a unique and fast-growing fitness programme
  • Support the continued growth of indoor rowing participation

What does my club receive upon signing up?

You’ll receive an extensive package of support from British Rowing, which includes:

  • Training for nominated club members – two places on a Go Row Indoor Club workshop
  • Go Row Indoor class models – pre-designed classes for all abilities
  • Go Row Indoor marketing materials – editable marketing materials and resources to help promote classes to the public
  • Go Row Indoor Club status – exclusive permission to use the designation ‘Go Row Indoor Club’ for a full year

How much does it all cost?

The Go Row Indoor Club package, which includes delivery of training for two club coaches, is priced at £200 for Year 1.

After Year 1, the cost of retaining Go Row Indoor Club status, continued British Rowing support, and additional space on a future Go Row Indoor Club workshop will be £95.00 per annum.

We also completely appreciate the difficulty of the current circumstances, and the affect the last 12 months will have had on your club’s finances. If your club is interested in the programme but is currently experiencing financial difficulty, please get in touch with us by emailing indoor@britishrowing.org and we’d be happy to talk through possible options with you.


How does my club apply to become a Go Row Indoor Club?

It’s simple – you can apply through your Club Administrator via British Rowing ClubHub. All your Club Administrator needs to do is click on your club’s profile, find the club affiliation tab and then click on the Go Row Indoor Club package icon to make an application.

You can also express an interest initially by emailing indoor@britishrowing.org – we’ll then get back to you to talk things through and answer any questions you have.


When are the next training workshops?

During the application process, clubs will need to identify two coaches who will deliver the club’s Go Row Indoor classes. Coaches must be available to attend one of the Go Row Indoor workshops for Club Coaches and must complete the training before commencing any class delivery.

The next available workshops will be held virtually on:

  • Saturday 24 April (09.00 – 14.00 GMT)
  • Sunday 9 May (09.00 – 14.00 GMT)

There are no prerequisites to attend this training. Clubs should choose individuals to attend the workshop who have interest in indoor rowing delivery, use the indoor rowing machine regularly and have some experience of teaching rowing. Clubs should also consider members who are good at interacting with new people and can help encourage participants to return back to the club time and time again.

Once you have applied and submitted your application, we will be in touch to confirm which workshop your coaches would like to attend including details on what they will need to access the training virtually.


What are the current Go Row Indoor Clubs saying about Go Row Indoor?

Julien Tavener, Bristol Ariel Rowing Club, Go Row Indoor Club Co-ordinator and Instructor

“The Go Row Indoor Club initiative has enabled us to provide an exciting and professional new exercise option to residents in our local community.

“Thanks to the support package provided by British Rowing, which included training and access to materials via British Rowing’s Go Row Indoor Brandhub, we’re confident in delivering a regular series of Go Row Indoor classes that are bringing in much-needed revenue and exposing the club and our unique facility to vibrant new audiences.”

Dermod Sweeney, Kingston Rowing Club, Go Row Indoor Club Co-ordinator

“Go Row Indoor is making the clubhouse available to the local community at otherwise dead times for the club – so a win-win situation. Also, it is producing some valuable additional income for the club.”

Dan O’Sullivan, The Ahoy Centre, Go Row Indoor Co-ordinator and Instructor

“Go Row Indoor is a great fitness concept which highlights the inclusivity and diversity that indoor rowing has to offer. Since running the classes at AHOY we have developed a fitness community amongst our ever-growing participants, who are more engaged with the charity and support the work we do in the local area.”
