Rowing WA's purpose in the development area is to assist in the maintenance of programs, processes and structures to support healthy and successful rowing programs in clubs and schools.

Rowing WA facilitates the development for all involved in rowing including our clubs, coaches, officials, coxswain and athletes through the Club Development Workshops, Hour of Power sessions, and the Coach Education that we run. Our Sport Development Manager is available for the facilitation of inter-club/school networking, the sharing of resources and the provision of best practice advice and information.
