2019 Summer School Games

Over 1,000 young people took part in our action packed Summer School Games across 3 days in June and July!

Water Regatta

The Watersports competition, which was organised by All Aboard! Watersports CentreĀ alongside the West of England Sport Trust (Wesport), took place on the 18th June at the All Aboard Centre, on Bristol Docks. The event provided fully inclusive opportunities for secondary pupils to take part in Rowing, Sailing and Kata-Kanu competitions on the water.

The Watersports event was the finale to the 6 weeks of pre-event coaching offered to schools to train and prepare the competitors with the basic techniques, supported by Young Leaders from Merchants Academy. Running alongside the competitions were individual challenges to keep the competitors busy, including a land-based Rowing Challenge facilitated by British Rowing which proved a great success.
