    Wendouree Ballarat Rowing Club Pathway Program 2018/19

    Please Register Your Interest

    Wendouree Ballarat Rowing Club is currently preparing to launch a youth (under 21) focused rowing program for the 2018-19 rowing season and beyond aimed at supporting Ballarat’s best youth rowers in nomination & selection to the Victorian State Team. The secondary goal of the program is to provide a pathway for all youth aged rowers to stay engaged with the sport. In support of this we have just purchased 2 brand new Sykes Coxed Racing Fours specifically for use within this program. 

    The last time Wendouree Ballarat Rowing Club supported a youth-based rowing program four of the eight athletes made it onto the Victorian State Under 21 Team to compete at the Australian Rowing Championships, additionally they won a silver medal in the under 23 coxed four!

    Program Selection Criteria:

    • Up to 10 Female & 10 Male rowers will be selected
    • 1 Female & 1 Male cox will be selected
    • If required, ergo testing will be conducted, top 10 female & male athletes will be selected
    • All program fees must be paid up front or an agreed upon payment plan must be followed
    Program Fees:
    • WBRC Annual Student Membership Fee $200.00
    • WBRC Youth Program Coaching Fee (Rowing) $550.00
    • WBRC Youth Program Coaching Fee (Coxing) $150.00

    • Australian Rowing Championships (not all athletes will attend) $1000.00 (approximate)

    Has it been a while since you’ve been in the boat? Join us on our free 8 week program to get fitter, stronger and more flexible.

    Program will involve both land and water training, coaching available at selected sessions. We will finish with our annual Christmas Row at WBRC.

    Please register your interest and you’ll receive a weekly email with training times, workouts and support to get back in the boat. Rowers are welcome to join part-way through the program.

    Rowing experience required. This is not suitable for beginners who have never rowed - it is intended to be a refresher for rowers who want to return to the sport socially or competitively.

    All welcome. Please pass on through your rowing networks.

    If you are keen to row (members or non-members) please contact Alicia Ivory.

    Volunteers to cook the BBQ would be great.

    We will aim to say a couple of words, have a snag and get a photo at 7pm – so if you’re just dropping in please aim for that time.

    Cheers (and Merry Christmas!)
