Rowing Program

Program Overview

The Program is supported and endorsed by Rowing NSW and the Northern Rivers Rowing Assocation. The program will be delivered through weekend camps and training days using the Northern Rivers Rowing Association club venues as the training bases. On-water and land-based programs will be set for each athlete, with athletes being required to attend complete a program commensurate with their age, experience and technical efficiency. Sports science including video analysis, ergometer and blood lactate measurements are used as part of the regular testing procedures. These sports science components also assist in the professional development of satellite coaches. As well as intensive training days and camps, squad members also receive an athlete education program which includes sports nutrition, sports physiology, sports psychology, media training and drugs awareness.
