Inaugural County Durham Junior Indoor Rowing Final
On Tuesday 8th December 2009, Team Durham in partnership with the County Durham Competition Managers and British Rowing, hosted the Inaugural County Durham Junior Indoor Rowing Final. Pupils from several schools across County Durham had taken part in intra- and inter-school competitions from J12 (year 7) through to J18 (Years 12 & 13) age groups.
The best athletes from each age group in each area (Durham City, Sedgefield, Easington and Chester-le-Street) were invited to participate in the event at Maiden Castle to compete on Concept 2 rowing machines all wired up to a live projection for all to view. It provided the chance for some of our top young rowers to post their best times of the year, and for others new to the sport the opportunity to simply improve their technique in a competition with others. Four rowers from each age group/category will now represent County Durham at a Regional Final on 2nd March, 2010 where they will compete against their rivals from Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and Tees Valley.
