    Training and competition

    • Competitive rowing is a highly formative and gratifying sport for youngsters: a taste for effort, group spirit, respect for nautical equipment (which is costly), travelling to regattas on numerous stretches of water throughout France... But it's also a demanding sport, requiring perseverance in physical effort and regularity in training sessions: 3 times a week for 13-14 year-olds (Wednesday, Friday and Saturday), 4 to 5 times a week for 15-16 year-olds with one or two indoor physical preparation sessions, and up to 7 times a week for juniors and seniors (17 to 23).
    • Many different types of boat can be used by coaches to form crews: the Skiff solo, the Double Scull, the Four and the Eight with 2 oars per rower (pair rowing) or just one ("point" rowing). Once teams have been formed, solidarity between rowers is essential, and attendance at regattas is mandatory.
    • Travel to regattas is quite frequent (up to every other weekend in May and June), and requires regular attendance at training sessions and a high level of availability at certain weekends. Each year, after a selection process at regional regattas, the club takes around thirty youngsters to the French championships, often rewarded with medals and even the title of French Champion. Some go on to join the "Pôle France" and defend our colors at European and world championships.
    • Five state-certified coaches, two of them full-time, supervise our youngsters every day and during regattas; during these trips, parents are asked to accompany youngsters and help organize meals and overnight stays; an interesting experience for all, which leaves unforgettable memories.

      Middle school sports section

      The Léonard de Vinci middle school in Montauroux has a rowing sports section. At the end of 6th grade, motivated students can join this class for three years (in 5th, 4th and 3rd grades).

      Access to this reinforced program is based on a sports screening and a study of the student's academic record. Regular attendance at training sessions is a must, as the rowing sports section is the heart of the club's competitive section.

      Training takes place on Wednesday and Friday afternoons as part of the school and UNSS programme, and on Saturday mornings as part of the club's competition section; indoor sessions are also held twice a week at the college.

      Every year, the students take part in the académie championships and the French middle school championships.

      Numerous podium finishes and French championship titles have regularly rewarded their efforts, making Montauroux one of the most renowned rowing schools in France.

      Objectives and values of the rowing sports section:

      • To enable young people to develop their full potential through a physically complete outdoor sport.
      • Succeed in their studies at college.
      • Learn a taste for effort and measure the benefits of regular, sustained work.
      • Open up to the outside world and develop autonomy.
      • Acquire a team culture and live within a framework of collective solidarity.
      • Develop a healthy lifestyle and sports habits.
      • Adopt safe behavior for themselves and others.

      Rowing at the Lycée and beyond...

      The Lycée St Exupéry in St Raphaël welcomes former students of the college sports section, offering them special timetables to continue their rowing training right through to the final year of high school.

      The club also welcomes young people from other schools and universities who have already been rowing competitively for several years.

      These generally highly motivated youngsters have to train 5 to 7 times a week to make it all the way to the French championships and, for some of them, enter the Pôle France and take part in the European and World championships.
