Our Coaches

Find information about our Junior Squad coaches below, complete with photos for identification.

Mark Calvin (Head Coach) - headcoach[at]weybridgerowing.org

Mark is a vastly experienced coach.  Originally from Coleraine he started rowing at Bann RC then at Tideway Scullers when he moved to England.  He is married to Chihiro who also coaches at Weybridge.  Mark oversees the Junior training programme and manages the top group of rowers; Clive, Nick, Graham and Neville look after the development squad.

Clive Capel (Coach) - clive[at]wrcjnr.com

If you want to learn how to row from scratch, Clive is exactly who you want. Every week, Clive develops beginners into vastly improving rowers and, with Nick, runs regular beginner courses.  Clive also works closely with Nick, Matt, Graham and the other coaches helping to make WRCjnr happen. 

Clive also deals with the administration of the Junior section and is well known for the vast quantity of email correspondence generated each week in the service of the Junior section.  

He is also a familiar sight at Regattas and Heads towing the club's distinctive blue boats all over the South of England - thanks to the generosity of LUSSO Homes we now have a shiny new Mitsubishi Warrior to tow the trailer.  He is also a Harlequins RFU supporter and a member of the Walton & Weybridge Regatta committee. He is a UKCC L2 qualified coach.  He is a Vice Captain of the Club, and Chairman of the Committee.

Nick Coxhead (Coach) - nick[at]wrcjnr.com

Nick is good fun as a coach as well as being very reliable, and making you feel comfortable with what you are doing. He's open to any questions you might have, helping to encourage and improve our developing Juniors.  

Nick is also a very practical man and maintains the boats we all use.  

Nick runs regular beginner courses with Clive and is a UKCC L2 qualified coach

Graham Cocks (Coach)

Graham helps with the early session Juniors, and is always ready to lend a hand.  He is also a keen member of the Weyfarers rowing squad and has just completed  his UKCC L2 coaching qualification.

Neville Shore (coach)

Neville helps with the intermediates and beginners.  He is a past rower at Weybridge, along with his brother Ian.

Mary Foulkes (Welfare Office)
