We are really excited to add another new sponsor partner to the team in the shape of the University of Bedfordshire – read more from the Uni below:
“The University of Bedfordshire is extremely excited to be in partnership with Bedford’s Star Rowing Club, viewing this a key opportunity to not only promote, but to facilitate change – making the sport accessible for all.
The partnership and funding with the University will enable the squad to expand on two fronts; coaching and further education. As part of our agreement, the University are keen to promote to the athletes that there are further education options available that allow the students to continue their rowing locally whilst carrying on their education. With plans to visit the club and local schools, students will have the opportunity to discuss further education and relevant subject areas with University colleagues.
Collectively, we are keen to demonstrate that sport is, and can be, a part of education that compliments academic work. These ‘life skills’ learnt by the students can be utilised on their personal statements when applying for university.
