MetadataShow full item record
This study investigates rowing sports development initiatives and more specifically a case study of Project Oarsome at Henley Rowing Club. The aim was to view how successful the projects had become and highlight key areas of interest regarding such an initiative by the National Governing Body, the ARA. A further area of interest is the feasibility of using such a project in the South Wales area. Communication between schools and clubs is an essential factor for the success of the project to allow Project Oarsome space for development. Indoor rowing is perceived as the main success of the project, in introducing the sport of rowing to a wider audience. The project has also led to an increase in the number of coaches helping in the development of new rowers which will in turn lead to more and larger competitions. This is all prevalent at Henley Rowing Club where the project has had time to be established. It is a case study which provides a new and interesting blueprint for further expansion of similar projects, such as rowing in South Wales.
