Learn To Row

SUBC has an incredible Learn to Row program where we recruit athletes each year during Welcome Week at Sydney University. The program goes on during the winter with the goal of becoming competitive rowers by the summer.

Many athletes from prior years learn to row programs have gone on to make the A-final of National Championship events and compete in highly competitive fields. Some of those who stuck with it for a few more years after that have found themselves representing Australia.

When do we run the program?

Recruitment for the learn to row program typically starts in February with the program running for 8 weeks beginning in the July holidays and running through to the first weeks of semester 2. After this athletes can continue to row at the club and begin competing for SUBC, along with further training as part of the development group.

This program will require the commitment of participants to 2-3 days per week, which will be emailed to those who have expressed interest in participating.
