Those accepted into the program develop the technique of rowing in a learning style adapted for each individual, in a single scull. As a sound level of technical competency is reached in a single scull, progression follows to the junior squad.
The aim of the junior squad is to develop the rower’s physiological ability in the gym, on the water training and also in competition. As goals are met, athletes may move to the Elite Development Squad.
Attitude and work ethic are among the first things our Junior coaches look for, as these are probably the only things we can’t provide. Respect for coaches, equipment, fellow rowers, and also the club are all part of this. Many Juniors who come to Mosman and stay become champions, but just as important to us is that they become good people.
