Welcome back to another season of rowing at Portadown Boat Club. We hope with a mix of great coaching from our dedicated coaching team, regular land and on the water training from the junior members and the usual brilliant support from parents we will have a successful and medal winning 2018/19 season.

- Anyone who cannot make a session on a Saturday should endeavour to let the coach know as soon as they can so the squad is not waiting around wasting time!
- Please be punctual.
- Please have couple of changes of clothes and dress appropriately for the weather, sunglasses are a necessary item throughout the year (not just summer time).
