The Marist Rowing shed is co-located within the Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) rowing shed, Yarralumla Bay. In additoon, the junior boys row out of the Lake Tuggeranong Rowing Club (LTRC) shed at Lake Tuggeranong. We are very appreciative of the relationship and generosity of CGGS and LTRC.
Our Club continues to have solid representation at local regattas as well as at the NSW State Championships, NSW Schoolboy Head of the River and in past seasons, the Australian Open Schools Rowing Championships (Nationals). These interstate trips provide a strong sense of camaraderie not only amongst the boys but the broader Marist rowing community. We will continue building that spirit, to strengthen and grow our club.
MCCRC has a very professional coaching staff comprised of parents, friends, current and former student rowers, CRC members and ACT Rowing personnel. These dedicated followers of the sport of rowing contribute an enormous amount of time and energy to improve the skills of our club rowers.
As a warm up to the ‘business end’ of the season, our rowers spend time at boat camp in late January.
A number of MCCRC awards are given each year. These include coach year group awards, fitness/strength (Erg) awards, and major awards (including the President’s Awards, Senior & Junior Oarsman of the Year Awards, Coxswain of the Year and Most Improved). These recognise boys for their outstanding commitment and effort.
