There are a number of different squads to suit both male and female, senior and masters crews, training for both competitive or social rowing.

The Club offers a short term Provisional membership option for experienced rowers wishing to return to the sport and for those who have just completed a Learn to Row course.

If you’re a rower with some experience and passing through Adelaide or if you just want to get fit in a friendly environment, becoming an Affiliate may be the your best membership option

If you are new to the sport of rowing and would like to start, the Club runs Learn to Row courses. After completing one of our Learn to Row programs, you may choose to take up a Provisional membership.
