Caitlin Boothroyd makes the Windsurfing World Championships in Spain in October following her best ever UK event in Bridlington last weekend!!!

Caitlin finished top u17 girl and also 3rd overall with only 2 boys finishing ahead of her. She won the last race of the event outright which was the first time she's beaten all the top boys! Conditions were mixed with light, medium and stronger winds plus a strong tide and she was consistent throughout.

With the European's in Israel in August and now the Worlds following in October, 2019 is proving to be a monumental year for Caitlin!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

I've heard that weight training is bad for children as it stunts their growth. Is this true?

No - there is very little evidence that weight training stunts a child's growth.

If coached correctly and the child is physically mature enough, then weight training can have massive positive effects on their performance. We make sure that every athlete is training in the optimal way for their given level.

I don't want my child getting bulky, slow and less agile - isn't that what gym training does?

No - only certain types of gym training do this. All of the training that we do will make your child stronger, faster and more agile fitting specifically to the sport that they play.
