Infinity Boat Club's incredible impact so far

Newly established Infinity BC had an incredible few months, from a feature on BBC, to winning a gold medal at the BR Indoor Championships, to receiving a message from actors from Boys in the Boat!

Infinity Boat Club's mission is to bring all the joys and benefits of the sport of rowing to school children who would not normally have access to it because of financial or social circumstances.

The club works with local partner schools to identify and invite young athletes that will benefit from the programme. 

The club launched in September offering free sessions. As the club is fully funded, it does not charge schools, parents or athletes. 

Feedback from schools:
“Thank you for providing this opportunity for our young people, they have not stopped talking about it since you left, which is so exciting”. 
Head Teacher 

“This week has been an absolute joy to be a PE teacher, the opportunity you and your team have provided is massively appreciated”. 
Head of PE

Twenty of Infinity juniors made the journey to the NEC in Birmingham to participate in BRIC; the club's first national event. As well as a great experience with lots learned, they saw some phenomenal results in the racing, with some top 10 finishes and several massive PBs.

One of the highlights was student, Abdullah taking the gold medal in the year 10 boys 500m. A fantastic achievement for Abdullah's first event.  Love Rowing congratulates everyone who took part and a huge well done to Abdullah for winning gold.
