Bartley hosted the RYA / ITCA Topper training for regional training group selection (RTG) previously the 'Zone Squad'. Those wishing to gain access to the RTG programme have to complete the selected Open meeting (SSSC this year), the Regional Junior Championships, and the squad selector training event. The reward is 6 weekends of training with top RYA Coaches to develop skills and provide a pathway to greater things. 23 hopefulls turned up on Sunday for a great day of training.
At Bartley we have 4 club Toppers that Juniors can try out and use on the water and we would encourage any juniors aged 10 to 15 to have a go in a Topper as the class has a thriving Midland circuit and is an RYA recognised pathway class. If you have a junior looking to progress from cruising in a Pico to Olympic success in a single hander then they need to get into a Topper as soon as possible.
