Hi there, I am hopefully going to be moving over to Singapore in January 2011 as my wife has just got a teaching job. I have some experience of rowing internationally and of coaching. I would be really interested in starting some coaching in Singapore and was wondering if anyone has any advice about where to start.
I have emailed the SRA but haven't got a reply yet.

Any advice would be gratefully received!

Best to try the following:

Hiya,
I've also been trying to contact the SRA without success - have tried phoning (number unavailable) and all the e-mail addresses given here but no response. I've been rowing on the Tideway for the last couple of years and having just arrived in Singapore want to keep rowing here too. Does anyone know what the training times are and what boats they have available at all? Thanks

Training times - Sat & Sun ~9-12.
Sometimes some serious rowers go even earlier, say ~7:30 or 8.
I usually go Sunday mornings.

They have single & double sculls.
Some rowers are looking for those wanting to go out on the larger crew boats.

Hi Maneo,
Are there still any rowers looking for 8's or 4's? I can row either strokeside or bowside? I've been assessed by one of the coaches now in a single (bit shaky as I normally row sweep!) - just trying to get membership sorted, but haven't been out for a session yet? Would be great to meet up with someone else that is going? Please PM me if you could?

Sounds like we've got a coach and plenty of interested rowers! I've just arrived from Australia and would love to continue Masters rowing - any progression in getting a crew together?

I'll try to go and see if I can meet anyone in person, who would be in anyway for a crew? Here's my email: Folcia@gmail.com

Rowing

Postby Fionap99 » Sun, 13 Mar 2011 7:22 pm

Hi all,

I've been discussing rowing in Singapore with a few people now and it looks like the situation currently stands as follows. There will be (hopefully in the very near future) 3 clubs in Singapore. There is the existing one at Pandan Reservoir accessed from Jalan Buroh - this has a multi laned course on the reservoir and is being renamed as the EASTer club. Another smaller club is has been set up at the other end of the same reservoir - will be called the Westside club. There will also be a further club being opened at the Marina Barrage - this will not have a laned course, but will have a free rowing area (total size yet to be defined but the possibilities look good!). The clubs will all be equipped with a variety of boats - singles, doubles and fours, but it is likely that the eights will be restricted to the reservoir site.
The Marina club should be opening in the next couple of months and until then, should still be able to row at Pandan.
Contacts wise, each club is being run by a different coach and will have different fees etc, but if you drop Raihan - the head coach an email raihan@rowing.org.sg he should be able to point you in the right direction!
Hope that helps, but drop me an email if you've got any more q's! I'll be going for the Marina club when it opens so am a bit sketchy on the detail of the others - tho have been up to Pandan and sculled a couple of times in the meantime now!

Hi,

I checked the website of D'Barrage Rowing Club and it seems the last update was in 2011. Do you know if they still exist?

Just move to Singapore and would love to pick up rowing again. thanks!

D'Barrage is definitely still running, it's just that their website isn't updated regularly.

You could get in touch with Budiman, one of the coaches - 83834118.
