After the trial program

Athletes will be selected based on 'coachability' not on athletic ability.  There will be no ergometer tests or height assessment.  We are looking for rowers who demonstrate they have good coordination for rowing and are good learners.

Participation inthe tral program will help us select which winter training program to suggest you join.  Club members will have the opportunity to join one or more squads:

  • Winter regatta training - for rowers keen to get more race experience and train in sculling boats (singles and quads).  The squad will race in the JB Sharp winter novice series in July-August (sessions are available on Monday, Thursday afternoons and Saturday and Sunday mornings (racing is on Sundays))
  • Erg squad - for rowers of all levels wanting to come to the club to do coached erg training.  (Wednesday evenings)
  • Female sweep squad - train twice a week to get ready to race in 8s in Head races over August-November.  (Thursdays and Sunday morning training)
  • Elite small boats squad - for experienced rowers aiming to train hard over winter to prepare for '24/'25 competition.  (Weekday and weekend mornings)
