Free Places At Top Local Sculling Club Courses
Tideway Scullers School offers scholarship places this summer
Top sculling club, Chiswick's Tideway Scullers School, is offering a couple of free scholarship places on this summer's Alec Hodges Courses at the club at Chiswick Bridge.
These five-day intensive courses normally cost £360 a head. There are five this summer, and they are almost always over-subscribed. Three General Courses are for beginners to experienced, juniors and adults, 20-24 July, 3-7 August, 17-21 August. Plus two Advanced Courses for race-experienced scullers (junior advanced 27-31 July, senior advanced 31 August - 4 September).
They are interested in strongly motivated potential athletes (adults or juniors) who would otherwise not be able to afford the course fee and are not already members of TSS. Juniors should be attending a non-rowing school, and must apply with the endorsement and contact details of their school's head of sport.
For more details of course content please see the relevant page on the website http://tidewayscullers.squarespace.com/scullingcourses/ and on Facebook -see Scullers School: Alec Hodges Courses. Shortlisted candidates will be invited down to TSS to meet the chief coach.
If you think you are a suitable candidate, send an email in the first instance to firstname.lastname@example.org briefly outlining your sporting career to date, and stating why your case merits a free place.
