The Junior Development Programme
In 2015 Wemmer Pan Rowing in partnership with Sir John Adamson High School started a rowing development programme. Several years ago rowing use to be a very popular sport at Sir John Adamson and the school is the alma mater of some of Wemmer’s older members.
The development programme aims to re-establish Sir John as a competitive rowing school and to introduce the sport to communities not familiar with rowing. Ultimately the programme aims to produce from these communities quality rowers who can compete on the highest levels.
In June 2015 Wemmer had an open day for grades 8 and 9 and the interest was very enthusiastic. Rowers are coached twice a week.
Although the rowers from Sir John are making a contribution to membership fees, the programme is largely dependent on sponsorship. If you are interested to support our development programme please get in touch.
