As our juniors' skills and fitness improves they are encouraged to join the competition squad in order to continue their development. Their progression benefits hugely from a structured programme and they are often mixed into crew boats with experienced rowers during training outings. Juniors compete at winter Heads as well as targeted summer regattas. This group targets the National Schools Regatta and Junior Inter-Regional Regatta as its main aims. Athletes on this group can also be helped towards GB junior selection if ability and commitment permits.
