Advanced Apprentice of the Year Award for Water Polo
Kathryn Fowler has been named as the Advanced Apprentice of the Year for Water Polo 2011
Fowler, who competes for City of Liverpool Water Polo club, was awarded the title at the graduation ceremony for the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence. She was actually unable to collect the award in person because she was at a water polo competition.
However, she is one of 102 athletes from the world of aquatics who successfully completed their unique apprenticeship, which has been designed to help young people aged 16 to 18 combine education and sport.
After captaining the British Water Polo Youth Women’s Team, powered by British Gas, Fowler started training with the senior squad. She was highest goal scorer for Liverpool when she played at the LEN European Champions cup in Athens in December 2009.
Kathryn secured high grades for her A Levels and at the moment she is studying Maths and Physics at university. She would eventually like to complete a Masters Degree in these subjects.
“Kathryn has been an exemplary apprentice for the way she has managed her AASE work, her academic studies and water polo career,” said Norman Leighton, Talent Development Officer.
