Boat club update

The Boat Club has been very active and very busy over the last month. Great Britain Trials The selection trials for the Great Britain Team continued prior to the Easter break.  Isaac Workman and Bryn Ellery travelled to Nottingham for five gruelling days of testing, which saw Bryn selected to the British Rowing team for the third year running.  He will travel to Munich at the beginning of May to compete at Munich International Regatta, which serves as a warm up event to the World Championships in August. Congratulation to him. Breisach Training Camp, Germany The annual Breisach training camp took place with twelve days in the lovely town of Breisach, where the river Rhine is an awesome venue for training.  Forty boys trained really well, often three times per day on the camp.  Training camp is an epic mission of logistics to get all the boats and coaching launches out there.  The rig is huge and packed.  The camp also serves as an excellent study period for the boys – the hotel conference room is converted, and boys had a great environment to get some high quality study in.  It is amazing to see them so committed on the water and gym, but likewise to their studies too.  They all without fail, did more quality study in Breisach then they would have at home. J14s camp in Windsor Unfortunately due to the dangerous river conditions the J14 year 9 camp was moved to the gym due to the horrible weather causing the river to swell. None the less, they trained well, and Mr Morrell was very pleased with them ...

Spring Term Sports Review

Senior Hockey - Mr Jeffery The senior hockey squads have had brilliant commitment with over 40 boys to choose from, making team selection very difficult. The 1st, 2nd and U16 teams have enjoyed the season playing a variety of schools differing in quality. The 1st XI have played well, achieving a very solid set of results. The highlights were beating an extremely strong Pangbourne team away 4-2, taking full control and dominating UCS 5 - 0 and finishing the season with an excellent Bath Hockey Tour, where the boys won two out of three games against big independent schools from Coventry and London. The future of senior hockey looks very bright with Matthew Bougourd, Vinnie Pattinson and James Core coming through from year 11. Well done to all the boys involved. It is a great pleasure to announce the following awards: Half Colours Chris Hill Louis Maggs Kelvin Ho Jack Hall Full Colours Anthony Brayshaw Zain Zafar James Matthews We have to give particular mention to Paddy O’Neill.  Paddy has played for the 1st XI for four years, since year 10! He has also represented Middlesex County Hockey and played for Staines 1st XI at club level which is the fourth Tier in English Hockey. Year 10 hockey - Mr Baggett and Mr Woods The under 15 Hockey team have been excellent this season, with 20-30 lads attending every training session and showing a huge willingness to improve their skills. It really has been a pleasure coaching them each Monday evening. The only down side of the season has been a lack of fixtures, mainly due to the many cancellations we have had due to bad weather. The highlights of the season was a crushing victory over UCS by the A team and a narrow 3-2 defeat at Reigate for the B team....
