The UTS Schools Winter Program helps aspiring junior rowers develop their skills and aims to compliment their school rowing programs. Over the years, the UTS Rowing Club has forged strong relationships with many schools in the Sydney area. We regularly visit these schools to talk to students about the tertiary education and rowing opportunities available after school, including UTS' Elite Athlete Program.
By design, our program creates a clear pathway for junior athletes into the club system and elite-level rowing.
High-performing school rowers are invited to try out for our program. You will have the opportunity to work with Head Coach and 7 time Olympic Medalist, Tim McLaren. Other coaches include Australian team coaches and winning GPS HOR 1st and 2nd 8+ coaches.
Sessions will predominantly focus on technique and skill acquisition. There will also be opportunities to improve your physical development. Spaces are limited, so get in quick by submitting the form below.
The Winter 2021 program costs $500, payable after being accepted into the program (post tryout). Fees are refundable on a prorata basis due to cancellation from COVID restrictions.
21st April to 28th August.
