National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships
On Friday the 9th of March Fulham Reach was at NJIRC to support students from Fulham Boys School, Cardinal Vaughan, Hammersmith Academy, Kensington Alderidge Academy, More House, Burlington Danes and also the FRBC Junior Squad.
The energy at the Lee Valley Athletcis Centre was absolutely electric. It was great to see so many students cheering on their peers, where scores on the board were second to gutsy efforts of all that took part.
While the students waited to race, London Youth Rowing had quite a few other activities set up during the day including a tug-of-war, lazer tag, skipping challenges and rock climbing! British Rowing were also on point to support the event and answer questions about how students could further their interest and get onto the water. It was great to see students busy getting active and away from their smart phones.
Alongside everything we were so proud to have two unbelievable results from two members of the FRBC squad:
- Aoife Chapman (racing for her school, More House) – 2nd Place Year 10 girls
- Schuyler Audley-William – 2nd Place Year 8 boys
Huge congrats to both of them and the coaching team for a great result on the day!
