Each year, Wendouree Ballarat RC recruits the best under 17 and under 19 rowers and coxes to compete at the Australian Rowing Championships. The program is targeted towards athletes and coxes who are not already representing their school at the Australian Rowing Championships (ARC) but have a desire to compete on the national stage.
Training sessions will be scheduled to work in tandem with school rowing programs.
The team departs on Sunday 26th March and returns on Sunday 2nd April 2023. The Australian Rowing Championships for 2023 are held at Champion Lakes in Perth, Western Australia.
Wendouree Ballarat RC will manage all logistics of the trip, supervision will be provided by Paul Blanchfield (Head Coach), a female Team Manager and crew coaches. The seat fee per athlete is available on the sign up page. This includes all travel, boat transport, accommodation and catering. It does not include regatta entry fees, these will be invoiced separately.
All athletes must hold a current Student Rowing Membership with WBRC, available here.
All team members are encouraged to apply for athlete travel grants to help lessen the cost to families.
Due to the complexities of arranging an interstate trip, all athlete seat fees must be paid up front no later than
February 10th 2023. Fees can be paid using the sign up page.
