Yarra Yarra Rowing Club

Coxswain Membership


If you enjoy leadership, being an integral part of a team, and aren't afraid to speak up, we need you! 

We're on the lookout for coxswains of all levels, from those with extensive race experience to absolute first timers. Yarra Yarra provides comprehensive and friendly guidance in developing your skills through our Learn to Row and Development Squad programs. 

You'll train and race with crews across eights, quads and fours, and have the opportunity to experience racing in all formats from long distance head racing through to 1km and 2km sprint races. 

Your membership provides access to Club facilities including ergos and the gym.

The competitive season commences with long distance head races for both Grade and Masters rowers from October through to December. Racing then moves into standard course distances of 1km and 2km from January until March, with Grade racing finalised at the State and National Championships.

The Masters Season of 1km sprint racing continues until May or June, culminating in the Masters State and Nationals Championships.


The social side

Yarra Yarra runs a range of social events throughout the year which all members are welcome to attend, including balcony BBQs, dinners, post regatta get togethers and awards presentations.
