England Rowing

The England Team is an opportunity for rowers to trial either in crews or small boats. to earn the chance to represent England alongside fellow club members or by yourself.

Representing England is a unique development opportunity for both rowers and coaches wishing to gain international experience. For some, it could be the first step to representing Great Britain.

The England Team has seen many Olympic and Paralympic rowers receive their first international representation. If selected you’ll be following the footsteps of; Charlotte Hodgkins-Bryne (2015), Charlotte Booth (2014), Emily Ford (2013), Laurence Whiteley (2012), & Sir Steve Redgrave (1978).


England trials for the Home International Regatta 2021 will be held at The Royal Albert Dock, London, E16 2QT, on Sunday, 11th July or through GBRT Junior Crew formation.
