Yarra Yarra Rowing Club

Youth Program

Our Youth program is designed for experienced school rowers looking for a program to support their rowing development and long terms goals.

Former International Rower and National Coach, David Orchert manages the YYRC Youth program.

Success through personal achievement and working as a team.

The Youth program aims to mentor and develop those athletes wanting to excel at the sport of rowing, by providing a structured, focused program in a supportive environment. 

Competing over 2km courses, the group attends various regattas and time trials throughout the season.  Those who are interested in competing at State and National level willl have the opportunity to qualify for events such as the NSW State Championships and Auustralian Rowing Championships. 

Training consists of five on-water and five land sessions, and participants will have the opportunity to take part in three intensive rowing camps held throughout the season. The program is suitable for experienced school rowers who are proficient in single sculling.
