England Teams: National School Games


School Games 2018

A decision has been made by Youth Sport Trust & Sport England that the National School Games Finals 2020 are to be rearranged for an as yet undecided date for 2021. The information below will be updated when we know more information regarding the 2021 games. A full statement by the Youth Sport Trust can be found here.

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.

·        Competed in a Level 3 School Games or recognised qualification event in the academic year 2019/2020.

·        If a British Rowing member cannot have been a member prior to the 1st of September 2019.
