West Midlands Junior Rowing Championships is held in March each year. The Championships include trials for selection of the J14-J16 squad to represent the West Midlands at the Junior Inter-regional Regatta at the National Watersports Centre, Nottingham. In 2019 the West Midlands Junior Rowing Championships are on Sunday 3 March, hosted by Stourport Boat Club. The Junior Inter-Regional Regatta is on Saturday 27 April 2019 at Peterborough Rowing Club.

The event is organised in a spirit of collaboration and team work. We aim to send the BEST team we can to the JIRR, with as many clubs from the West Midlands as possible. We also aim to provide a high quality day of racing so that our junior rowers can be proud to have taken part in the West Midlands Junior Rowing Championships!

The organiser of this year’s championships is Jane Sullivan, Head of Rowing at RGS Worcester. Abi Terry, junior rowing coach at Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club, is the entries secretary. Paul Holmes of Worcester Rowing Club is the event safety officer (and also the safety officer for the West Midlands). We are very grateful to Stourport Boat Club and their organising committee for the opportunity to host this event on their stretch of the River Severn.

All coaches of junior rowers in the West Midlands are invited to the annual planning meeting at which the rules of the event are reviewed. If you wish to be involved then please get in touch westmidlandsrowing@gmail.com
