The Seeclub Zürch is traditionally committed to competitive sports. Training takes place all year round under the direction of our coaching staff. The training base is in Zurich, but advanced teams also train in Eglisau, on the Rhine. The training focuses on endurance and technique.The highlight of the training year is the regatta season, which ends from the end of April to the beginning of July with the Swiss championships on the Rotsee in Lucerne. Swiss rowing athletes (Elite, U23 and U19) prepare for the international competitions under the direction of SWISS ROWING. The race distance is 1000m/1500m (Juniors U13/U15) to 2000m (Juniors U19, U23 and Elite) depending on the age group. Rowing is done in all boat classes like single, double, four or eight.The aim of rowing training is to participate successfully in regattas and primarily to win medals and victories in club teams.
The Seeclub Zürich was founded in 1863 and is the oldest rowing club in Switzerland. The Seeclub Zürich is very successful in sports. Numerous medals at European and World Championships as well as Olympic Games (most recently in Rio 2016 with Olympic champion Simon Niepmann in the lightweight four without coxswain) bear witness to the club's serious work with young talents over decades.
