Supporting the younger generation

Funding level: Up to £1,000


Itchen Imperial is a Southampton based rowing club located on the river Itchen and was founded in 1916 and are celebrating our centenary this year. We are historically a coastal rowing club who compete in regattas organised by other clubs that are affiliated to the Hants and Dorset Amateur Rowing Association.T hese regattas are held in the summer months along the south coast from Southsea to Swanage and include the Isle of Wight.

We have around 30 junior members at the moment who train twice a week. If we were lucky enough to gain a grant then we would like to buy a new set of rowing blades for one of our quads.

Moment of Pride

The club is only run by volunteer coaches, who give up their free time to coach around 30 children twice a week. The kids learn team work and make friends that last a life time.
