Eight students in County Clare have been selected to represent the ROSE project at a Youth Rowing and Cultural Exchange in France on April 4th – 9th. This EU collaborative project which is funded by Erasmus+ is very busy in the coming months. Our Clare Action Group on Rowing travelled to a transnational meeting in Portugal on 4th February. The ROSE project is aiming to develop workshops using rowing as a tool to teach topics under Health, Inclusion and Envirorment. We completed all 9 lesson plans which we are very excited to test with the young people in April.

In Viana do Castelo, Portugal the action group got a tour of the extraordinary rowing facilities of Viana Remadores do Lima. We attended some excellent presentations of both a nearby local club and a very successful para-athlete – João Ribeiro. We watched how the club manages a class of rowing for their recreational youth rowers. The group of coaches got to enjoy a tour of the river while rowing in an 8 watching the sunset.

The international project group consists of: Comité Régional Olympique et Sportif des Pays de la Loire (France), Ligue d’aviron des Pays de la Loire(France) Clare Local Sports Partnership (Ireland), C.I.M. Alto Minho (Portugal) and We Atlantic.

What is the ROSE project?

ClarRose Project Logo with Erasmus+ Logoe Sports Partnership is delighted to be a steering group partner of ROSE: Rowing an Outdoor Sport for Education. This international collaboration project aims to promote and educate young people through the practices of rowing. The international steering group consists of: Comité Régional Olympique et Sportif des Pays de la Loire (France), Ligue d’aviron des Pays de la Loire (France) Clare Local Sports Partnership (Ireland), C.I.M. Alto Minho (Portugal) and We Atlantic. It covers three core areas – health, education, and inclusion. It will strengthen links between schools and rowing clubs. Along with our partners, we are looking to increase awareness of rowing, create opportunities for participants to try rowing, and enhance rowing already in existence within County Clare.
If you have any interest or ideas in helping to develop rowing in County Clare – whether it’s school, club or community-based – please contact our the Project Lead for CSP (Ireland) Jessica O’Keeffe – jess@claresports.ie
