Junior Program

The Glebe junior program provides 12.5 to 18 year olds with the opportunity to develop in the sport at their own pace.  Our flexible program focuses on rowing in small boats so that juniors grow in independence. 

For juniors attending rowing schools, we provide the opportunity for them to learn how to row before they start at school.  Our summer and winter programs also help them deepen their skills in the sport and fast track their development.  A number of our juniors compete for both club and school throughout the season to add to their regatta experience. 

We also provide juniors that do not attend non-rowing schools with the opportunity to row.  Our club and school Learn-to-Row programs introduce over 50 kids to the sport every year and we have helped many to progress in the sport up to elite level.

Please see the event page to register for upcoming Junior Learn to Row or School Holiday programs.

Please contact captain@gleberowingclub.org.au to find out what is coming up or discuss how the junior program works.
