QuadKidz 2019 Round -Up

A Big Thank-you to all those QuadKidz that took part in our 2019 Series, the highest number of youngsters taking part since we started our QuadKidz Events 3 years ago! A total of 17 awesome youngsters, we hope you all enjoyed your events and you’ll come back next season …. and bring your like minded friends too!

Once again Congratulations to 2019 Series Winners Blake Mawson-Burren, and Hermione Ball racing all 3 events showing great determination and commitment. We hope they continue to race and inspire many other QuadKidz next season, and lets hope we get lots more doing all 3 races in the series.

Here are the 2019 Final Trophy Results BQA Quadkidz 2019

I would also like to thank our QuadKidz race organizers, who have taken time to add these races into the Quadrathlon Calendar, without your time and commitment we wouldn’t be able to offer this fantastic opportunity to our youngsters …..  the BQA’s future stars!

So thank-you Mark Benton and his Manvers Waterpark Team for QuadKidz1 – Dearne Valley Quad      Thanks to Mark Pryor Quadrac Racing QuadKidz2 – Box End Quad. Bedford.
And to Pete Chappill and his Lincsquad Team for QuadKidz3 – ‘LincsQuadKidz’ at North Lincolnshire & Humberside Sailing Club, Barton Upon Humber.

Manvers Water Park and Lincsquad have also had regular training sessions and training days which have also helped encourage the youngsters too, so lets hope we can keep moving these events forwards, keep our Quadkidz motivated and one day onto that World Circuit!

A few smiley faces from those great training days … 

















This is a great endevour to try to encourage the next generation of quadrathletes. We hope that some of these youngsters will progress to the full competitions that are suitable in the coming years. Once again a big thank you to those who made these events happen.

Generally, both here in GB and in mainland Europe the Masters age groups outnumber the younger ages. The WQF has a small fund which can be used to pay race entry fees for young athletes to attend races outside their own country. Do you think this is this the best use of a limited pot of money? Or is there anything else we could be doing to help our future QuadKidz. If anyone has any suggestions or can offer help on how we can address this, the BQA would love to here from you. 

Here’s to next Season #onwardsandupwards
