Super Regional Talent Squads

The Super Regional Squads (SRS) are the first formal point of entry onto the pathway and ensure a seamless transition for athletes moving from the Flatwater Racing Skills days and onto the England National Talent Squad (ENTS).

These athletes take their first steps towards ownership and autonomy in training and racing as they develop technical competencies and skills whilst gaining education of psychology, strength and conditioning, nutrition, and performance lifestyle.

There are currently four Super Regional Squads; Central, Lee Valley, London and South West. They are supported by a programme of coaching through weekly and weekend training sessions at several of the main flat water sites in the UK.

The SRS Squads are selected in Winter each year from November 2017 so keep an eye on our Talent Sprint Overview Page for Profiling Registration and to apply to be on the England Sprint Talent Programme!
