Our High Performance program provides an environment for talented men and women to achieve selection in national teams and compete at World Championships and Olympic Games. Selection to compete in NSW state teams for interstate competition is also a priority of this group.
We provide our members with the equipment, facilities and specialised individual coaching and training and competition opportunities both in Australia and internationally which are essential for success at the elite level.
Our Elite and High Performance program has been developed to complement the objectives of the National Rowing Centre of Excellence (NRCE), which are the basis of the national selection policy. It is expected that athletes and coaches in our High Performance squad will comply with the various requirements of the state and national programs.
Athletes will compete in NRCE and NSWIS high performance events, patient NSW and Australian Championships as well as various NSWRA regattas. We also compete at international events including Henley Royal Regatta and the Head of the Charles Regatta.
61 members of Sydney Rowing Club have competed in Olympic Games and more than 100 have achieved national selection.
