In this text, I look at how Thomas precession looks like within the context of very special relativity, as proposed by Cohen and Glashow. I first derive the subgroup structure of the Lorentz group, before looking at the specific subgroups used by Cohen and Glashow and pointing out some properties of these particular subgroups. I then work inside the framework of these subgroups to derive the Thomas precession and look at differences between the precession in these subgroups versus classical Thomas precession. It is found that they behave quite differently, and thus differences could be found between special relativity and very special relativity.
