Head coach weekly update

Dear all,

Firstly, the session for the boys is 3 x 2k at rate 24 and the girls will get their info from Arran and Ellie.

Firstly, congratulations to those who raced at Bradford Regatta on Saturday as the club returned with 7 wins. This event was restricted to those below j16 junior-wise with some masters too.

Much of the hard work on the water and on the ergos over the summer has paid off with many new members notching their first wins. Thanks to Louise, Peter, Ellie, Craig and Lee who operated as coaches and those who assisted Brian with the trailer and boats. Wins as below:

  • mens im3 2x Mert Evigern and Mark Wilson
  • Mj15 1x Max Wilson
  • wj142x Amy Hall and Emma Thornton
  • wj131x Amy Snook
  • MJ152X Aidan and Tyler
  • MJ154X+ Tyler, Kahn, Max and Sam
  • WJ14 1X Caitlin Warren

A week on Sunday the club hosts various athletes from clubs from Yorkshire and the North East. If you can help the running of the event in any capacity please let me know. Racing starts at 9.30 and we should be wrapped up for 3.30.

Kay Hall has limited tickets available for the annual presentation night on Friday 23rd Sept at Chiltern Moor, please see her if you are interested.

Our Chairman has done brilliantly over the past month finding various funding streams for new kit. Please watch this space as new developments are happening as we speak with changes to the building also imminent.

The club has received nominations for Coach of the Year – Arran Lewcock and Junior Sports Club of the Year as well as Junior Sporting Achievement of the Year. The awards ceremony is on Thursday night. Wish us luck.
