REACH YOUR POTENTIAL

This information session is a must for any aspiring rower who is looking to minimise their risk of injury and maximise their performance this season. 

We see many rowers in the clinic and this information session helps answer all our most commonly asked questions. We have many parents who say "I wish I had known this"!

Rowing is a physically demanding sport that exposes the body to high and repetitive loads which often leads to overuse injuries. It requires a balance of strength flexibility and mobility. This combined with the tough training schedules and growing bodies makes our school-aged rowers the most prone to injury in the sport.

Prepare now for an injury-free upcoming season.

What you do off the water is as important, if not more important, than what you do on the water. Prioritising off water recovery will differentiate athletes when it comes to performing and avoiding injury.
