Mercantile Winter Training Program

High-performing school rowers and coxswains in Years 10 & 11 are invited to sign up for the Mercantile Winter Training Program.

What is the Winter Training Program?

The program is aimed at athletes who want to put themselves in the best position to achieve their goals in the 2024/25 season by improving their sweep/sculling skills and developing their fitness both on the water and on the rowing machine.

The athletes accepted into the program will have the opportunity to train and connect with the community of student rowers from other school programs, progress technically on the water, and have a training program over winter to put themselves in the best position possible to achieve personal best results and key events during the upcoming season.

The program is led by our Club Captain Alexander Clarke, and the Mercantile coaching group who have a wealth of experience coaching athletes to success at events such as the Underage World Rowing Championships, Head of the River, and Head of the Schoolgirls regattas

How many athletes will be in this program?

The number of athletes accepted into the program is strictly limited and selection will be based on a combination of past rowing experience, past regatta results, and personal best ergometer scores.
