British Rowing’s Thames Regional Rowing Council has set up a website to provide online resources for adaptive rowing in the Thames Valley region, the most active region in the UK. The website was set up and is being run by Nick Steel, Adaptive Coach and Coordinator at Maidenhead RC. He will also be sitting on the committee to provide input to their official deliberations so that adaptive issues and perspectives can be addressed most effectively.
- “The Thames Regional Rowing Council (TRRC) comprises representatives from every British Rowing affiliated club and event in the region (196 clubs, universities and schools; 70 regattas and heads). It is responsible for overseeing and/or running many aspects of rowing in the region (including safety, umpiring, rower and coach education). Nick Steel (Adaptive coach at Maidenhead RC) was recently recruited onto the council to represent Adaptive rowing in the region. He aims to be the ‘voice at the table’ for the Adaptive rowing community in the Thames region, advising of activities and specific requirements, making connections, and seeking further collaborative opportunities with other areas of rowing. The recently relaunched TRRC website includes links to news and resources for Adaptive rowing. https://www.thames-rrc.co.uk/adaptive-rowing. Please contact Nick with suggestions or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
With this post, I have also added a new Category for “Online” to provide an easy reference of the range of online resources for adaptive and pararowing that I’ve covered.
