Ordnary SPRING/SUMMER Training times (June and August until August 23) July is vacation time, although Masters and University Faculty training occurs.


How training sessions are organized: COMMUNICATION IS KEY!

Due to the nature of rowing, it is important that everyone knows who is coming to training and when. That way, both coaches and rowers can have at least a tenative plan for which rowers should be together in which boats for the session.


Step 1: Fill out the training session form located at the following link. This gives you a chance to track your progress and lets you say which training sessions you are coming to.

ROWING TRAINING Sign-up Sheet (copy this link into your Notes on your smart phone or into your contacts list)

Step 2: Communicate with those who are also coming. OR, and this is very effective, form a CREW/TEAM who you row with. Communicate via FB, mobile phone or mail. Decide which training session you all will be at.

Step 3: Continue to get to know both the boats and the other rowers. The more you know, the more you can row.

Masters (Rowers older than 26) is the focus. Others are welcome, but Masters have priority.

Below is a detailed description of how we organize and schedule training and boat usage at JRS.

Good to know, but not necessary for beginners.


"Training Groups" and "Competition Squads" at JRS

A "Training Group" is a grouping of rowers, defined by the coaching staff, who have similar goals and abilities. Group members either row with different rowers each week or can decide to form a "Competition Squad" that always trains together with the goal of competing in a future competition. See information below.

2 - Junior Elite. Coach(s): L-B Folke, Paul Buckley. Captain(s):

1. Elite rowers train towards representing Sweden internationally and are responsible for following a specific training program AND for filling out the Swedish Rowing Federation monthly training report and mailing it to thier coach.  LINK to Swedish Rowing Federations page with downloadable training reports, descriptions of physical tests and training suggestions.

2. JU Competion Rowers with Swedish passports can participate in Senior Elite / U23 program, but are expected to row for Uni when possible. I.e. National representation is currently prioritized over Uni representation.

A "Competition Squad" is a group of rowers who have decided, with the consent of thier coach, to train and compete together. They have identified a regatta or regattas they want to compete in, and have a plan to train towards that/those regattas. (Link to Swedish Rowing Federations Regatta schedule) They can schedule their own traning which is usually done by the Squad Captain. They rely upon each other. Reliability is key. If one does not show to practice, it will likely adversely effect the others. Reliability is one of the qualities employers know successful rowers posess. Competition Squads work with coaching staff to find session times where a coach is available. Alternatively they have a someone follow in Coaching boat to film them using "Coaches Eye" on a smartphone, which they themselves and thier coach can review at a later time.


1. An 8+ competition squad is 10-12 rowers plus a cox. They have decided they are going to compete in the 8+ races during the season.

When all 12 are able to make training they can row the 8+ and a four, two doubles or four singles. Other variations are logical if only 11 can make training, etc.

2. A 4 competition squad is 6 rowers.

These rowers have decided to train and compete together.

When all 6 can make practice, they row a 4 plus a double or 2 singles. etc.
