The College‚Äôs newest sport continues to grow in enthusiasm and structure. Marist Rowing has captured the minds and bodies of boys and parents alike.  The committee thanks the tremendous response which has seen 50 boys registered. This number has capped the capacity of the club in its inaugural season thus no further registrations can be accepted.  The committee encourages boys to place rowing on their priority list for next summer sporting season.  It is envisaged that further capacity will be available next season allowing the number of boys able to row increase.  

Head Coach Neil Smith, with his able coaching assistants have developed a training structure which will be fully implemented week commencing 10 November 2010. Each Year group has now been aligned with coaches and coordinators, coupled with assigned training days.   

Mr Simon Dunphy has put the boys through their fitness paces, giving them an insight into the physical demands of rowing. The winter sport coaches will be very pleased with the fitness levels developed by the rowing squads.

On Sunday 24 October 2010, 42 of the Marist Rowers pounded the streets of Yarralumla and Deakin en route to Canberra Girls Grammar School aquatic centre where they were put through a series of mandatory water safety skills. With testing completed, the boys returned to CRC, a tad damp but relieved for the downhill run home.

Marist rowing is most grateful for the generosity of the staff of the CGGS aquatic centre for not only providing the facility but donating their time in conducting the water tests. 

The Marist rowing committee thanks all parents, and their new partners at CRC for their continued support in ensuring our young men have a fabulous introduction to the sport of rowing. All rowers and their families are encouraged to keep informed with rowing updates via the website located at maristcanberrarowingclub.com
