The Novice/Bridging squad is for ITR graduates or for those members that just need to rediscover their “inner rower”. Sessions are usually conducted in crew boats however when time permits rowers will be provided with single sculling coaching. Novice/Bridging Squad rowers have the opportunity to compete in local regattas and be selected for University Games crews, as well as being able to move up into the Intermediate and Senior Squads as their rowing skills become more advanced.
Due to safety reasons, novice rowers are not able to go out without a coach or senior club member and the Novice/Bridging Squad is not able to take on beginner rowers. If you have no experience with rowing please find out about our Introduction to Rowing program here.
Training for the Novice/Bridging squad will be at 5.55am Mondays and Wednesdays and 8.00am on Saturdays. General members can participate in as many sessions for their squad as they choose.
