Following on from the application process, we held a team orientation in Chester to introduce our athletes to the coaches and brief them about the ins and outs of sprint racing. Our coaches have now been revealed and you can find out more about Chris and Jamie on our 'about us' page.
The athletes and coxes loved getting to grips with the concept of Power8s and enjoyed some time in the gym and on the water too. From our first session we can definitely see that we've got the potential for some very fast crews!
Athletes commented that it was great to have the opportunity to get in a boat with people from other clubs that they are usually racing against.
Team Orange is definitely going to be one to watch!
