Home Grown. World Class.

What does this mean for Elliott Hudson College Boston Spa?

We will be creating a high-performance squad in our sixth form, supported by fulltime professional coaching, with a sport-specific strength and conditioning suite and access to state of the art on-water facilities at the new £1.2 million Leeds Boat House.

You do not need any prior rowing experience; just the right physique and attitude to give rowing a go.

What can rowing do for you?

Rowing is a power-endurance sport. Most members of the GB Rowing Squad didn’t first pick up an oar until their late teens. Research shows that doing a variety of different activities in their younger years makes for more robust athletes when the time comes to specialise.

You might be the next Steve Redgrave and you don’t even know it.

Furthermore, although many of our Olympians have been competent in other sports before taking up rowing, it is often those who do not excel in traditional ball sports and team games that seem to do well in a boat. It helps to be tall, but by far the most important ingredients are a will to win and a determination to do what it takes.

Trials for internal and external Year 11 candidates wishing to apply will be held on:

10th January at Boston Spa Academy
