The first sessions started on Sunday June 10th, and the second set of sessions start on Sunday July 8th. All the sessions run from 10am – 12pm and cost £6 for six sessions.
Nicola Housam, who secured the funding for the club, said: “This is a really great chance to explore rowing in a safe and relaxed environment. The qualified and experienced coaches are able to cater for all ages and abilities. Sessions are primarily for people aged 14 – 25, but if anyone outside this age wants to try rowing, then please get in touch with the club”.
Sportivate is a national programme, managed by Sport England and delivered by Lincolnshire Sport Partnership, which funds six-week sport sessions to encourage teenagers to take part in sport.
Lucy Blakey, Children and Young People Officer at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “Boston Rowing Club are working really hard to promote rowing to young people. I hope that the funding secured through Sportivate will allow them to encourage more youngsters from the area to try a sport they perhaps have never tried before.”
