Saftey is of the highest importance. Please note that boys will be required to complete a swim test before they are allowed on the water. 


Through the hard work of our volunteers, our general program at MCCRC has a focus on participation followed by competition at the appropriate level. Boys learn to row and then train to compete. Competition is primarily in local regattas on Lake Burley Griffin. The end of the season culminates in an excursion to the NSW Schoolboy Head of the River at Sydney International Rowing Centre (SIRC), Penrith. The ordinary course of a rower’s progression is:

1. Learning to row
2. Training to compete
3. Competing at:

  • Local club regattas (Canberra)
  • ACT Championships and ACT Head of the Lake (Canberra)
  • NSW Schoolboys Head of the River (Penrith)

New rowers will particiapate in the learn to row & cox program. Participation in Regatta's commences from Year 7.  Boys will learn valuiable skills and valuable skills that will provide an excelent basis for competitive rowing in continuing years.


The training commitment required is two afternoons per week, Satruday mornings and participation in local and interstate regattas (if selected). The competition season runs from October to March.

We are very fortunate to have a strong relationship with Lake Tuggeranong Rowing Club (LTRC) which is where our junior boys will train & participate in the learn to row program. The Marist Rowing Shed is co-located within the Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) rowing shed at Yarralumla Bay. Some training sessions will be held at Yarralumla.

Boys are required to wear the rowing uniform for both training sessions and regattas. The uniform is available for purchase from the Marist School Uniform Shop. We strongly recommend having a spare kit for regattas as boys can get wet and it’s a long day if you are cold.

  • MCCRC sun shiirt (optional)
  • MCCRC cap - lightweight with crest & oars
  • Running / sports shoes are required at every training session
  • Slides (shoes)
  • Drink bottle (soft plastic)
  • Sunglasses - optional but highly recommended
