Tida Sullivan, Apprentice Coach After completing my A Levels, I decided to apply for the Coach Core Apprenticeship with London Youth Rowing. I actually learned to row with LYR as a member of the 'Brixton Wings' community group when it started in 2010. Rowing has taught me discipline and perseverance which can encourage young individuals to strive to become the best versions of themselves. My new role has given me the opportunity to carry on the tradition of quality training that I have benefitted from. It has enabled me to grow as a leader and pass on my confidence and passion to the next generation. I have been able to watch young rowers improve through my guidance which has given me an amazing sense of achievement. I can’t wait to see myself and those I coach grow as individuals and as a collective!
