  • And we welcome Visiting Rowers to row with us while in Adelaide.

Senior Women’s squad

Our Senior Women’s squad includes rowers age 14 and up, training and racing in a variety of sweep and scull boats. We train up to six mornings a week over summer with an on-water focus at West Lakes and in winter focusing on gym and ergo training at our Torrens club rooms.

The Senior Women have represented the Club at state, national and international championships as well as local and regional regattas.

This squad also has a great social aspect, with several social events throughout the season and regular meet-ups at the club rooms.
Contact the Vice Captain for further information.

Para squad

Torrens Rowing Club provides the only para rowing program in South Australia with specialized equipment and coaching.
Para-Rowing can provide fitness and recreational benefits for those with a physical or intellectual impairment. It can also be part of an individual physical therapy program. Apart from the opportunity to be active on the water there are pathways for progression to elite athlete programs.

Para members are offered a 50% reduction in membership fees.

How far do you want to go? Simon (TRC member) went to the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020 and won the B Final with Kathryn.
