The Parent Support Association

We understand that for many parents of children who are starting to row or are advanced rowers starting to compete at both domestic and national events might find this whole rowing thing quite daunting! 

There are loads of logistics and commitments relating to this sport and we have a created a PSA (Parent Support Association) who’s role is to offer support to these parents as well as develop initiatives in order to support our junior rowers and their development. This Association is made up of the parents of some of our Junior members.

If you are a parent of a team Keane Rower & would like to get involved with the PSA, you would be very welcome so please do get in touch.
