Elite Development

The athletes in this category generally emerge from the Junior squad, and are considered ready to take on the heavier workloads they’ll need to prepare for tougher competition. They have done the hard work, and are ready for the next level. In this stage of the rowers’ development, high calibre coaching is vital. Progress to the ED squad is not automatic, it is earned.

The growing up phase begins here.

Elite Development Squad rowers may compete at under-19, under-21 and under-23 level.

Athletes will be expected to contribute to MRC above and beyond their rowing, whether it be in the care and maintenance of our shed and fleet, or helping out with fundraising activities.
