  • Do you know that young rowers are growing at the fastest rate in their lives when they start to row?
  • Do you how much energy it takes to grow and train?
  • Do you know how much to eat to meet the needs of rowing and growing and land based training?
  • Do you know a weights program can be started safely to minimise risk on a growing body?
  • Do you know what a weights program should look like to make strength gains?
  • Will getting stronger make a boat go faster?
