LUBC has had a particularly large intake of novices this season, most likely a result from the amazing display by Team GB at the Rio Olympics this summer. During Freshers Fair we had over 400 Novice sign ups and there are still over 200 of them staying on as active members in the squad.
Our circuits sessions, held on Monday mornings, have seen record breaking turn outs in comparison to recent years. After the novices received their Boat House Orientation and had multiple Novice erg taster sessions, the Novice Men’s and Women’s Captains, Brad Cleary and Zoe Rees, have separated their novices into individual crews who have been assigned their own Boat Captain to coach them through their time at LUBC.
The Novices will get their first opportunity to show off their competitive spirit at the upcoming BUCS indoors event hosted by Liverpool University Boat Club. Hopefully we will comeback with some good results and some podium places.
