Juniors Program at ANA
This program is aimed at providing all junior athletes with opportunities to experience enjoyment and success in the sport of rowing. Juniors from any school are able to participate in the All-Schools racing program which is open to full time students. These events are run by school year group.
We offer term by term memberships for school students. See the Membership Fees page.
Junior training times are:
Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4pm to 5:30pm
Saturday 6am to 8am
We have a pathway for the athletes who demonstrate commitment and skills to enter the more senior group at any time.
Greg Willson operates as our high performance coach offering a pathway for juniors with potential to compete at a National level.
