Wycliffe College are proud to share the fantastic results achieved by a few of the girls in our Senior School in the Junior GB Rowing trials. After the first three assessments, all our girls gained personal bests at each stage putting them in a strong position for the upcoming Summer season.

Points gained so far put the girls in the following positions:

1st –  Grace

18th – Rachel

27th – Yasmin

These results demonstrate the commitment and effort each one of the girls brings to the Sport and we are excited to see what the future holds for each of them.

What do the Junior Rowing Trials involve?

To be considered for the GB team, any enthusiastic Junior rower who is keen to be selected must take part in trials. Registration for 2021 opened in September 2020 and Wycliffe College rowers are currently taking part in a series of compulsory tests and assessments.

These tests include a series of land and water-based assessments whereby each Junior rower must meet certain criteria to then go on and be considered in the main team.

Find out more about what is involved in Junior Trials on the British Rowing website.
