England Teams: National School Games


School Games 2018

The National School Games Finals are a unique multi-sport event for the UK’s talented young athletes of school age where teams from across the United Kingdom compete. The event creates an inspirational and motivational setting that not only provides our talented young sports people with the opportunity to thrive and perform at the highest levels but encourages more young people to take part and succeed in sport. With young people from across the country encouraged to support their teammates across all sports.

British Rowing selects teams for the England North and England South Indoor Rowing Teams with each team having a total of sixteen rowers broken down as follows:

Year 9 Year 10
Boys 4 4
Girls 4 4
Year 9:
Year 10:
Year 9:
Year 10:

Our aim is to identify juniors not already involved actively within the sport to be part of the teams. Therefore individuals will be selected by their performance based on the British Rowing individual Go Race Indoor Formats. Qualification events will include all Level 3 School Games, other regional/national youth indoor rowing events, and other school-based events with results posted on Rowlog.org.


To be eligible for the 2020 School Games National Finals you must be

·        A student in Year 9 or 10 of the 2019/2020 academic year.
