STAGING U19 (Junior) Trials - British Rowing

U19 (Junior) Trials

Information about registration for Great Britain Junior/U19 trials

Any junior rower with the ambition to gain GB selection must be a British citizen and have a current British Rowing membership (or Welsh Rowing or Scottish Rowing equivalent).  Junior rowers must be registered with the GB Rowing Team Junior Programme by their coach who must themselves be registered.  Rowers cannot register themselves.

Full eligibility criteria will be sent to all coaches registered for the GB Rowing Team Under 19 (Junior) Programme. To register as a coach, e-mail Zoe Hainsworth. Registration for 2023 has now closed.

Once registered as a coach you will receive all relevant information regarding the Junior Trials Process and information on how to register a rower.

The trial process is a combination of compulsory land based and water based assessments throughout the season and rowers and coaches must meet the necessary criteria to be considered for selection. Information about each assessment is sent out to all registered coaches.

Coaches can contact Zoe Hainsworth with any questions about the process.

Coaches wishing to enter rowers into J16 Trials do not need to register as a GB Rowing Team Junior Coach. If you would like to receive information on the J16 trial and/or J16 GB v France match please join the contact list by completing this short form.

2023 Season

Junior Triallists must be registered with the GB Junior Scheme by a registered coach. Coaches should contact Zoe Hainsworth if they wish to receive information about registration for the 2023 season.
