About Our Club

Shepparton Rowing Club is a small, family friendly club open to rowers aged 12 and above. The club trains on beautiful Victoria Park Lake in the heart of Shepparton with the boat shed located at the southern end of the lake.

The club is administrated by volunteer committee and coaches, elected annually at the AGM. Shepparton Rowing Club is an inclusive club, welcoming all levels of rowing abilities from beginners to elite and social and competitive rowers. Annual memberships fees are kept low with fundraising events to support the ongoing running costs of the club.

New rowers train on Sunday mornings and will have guided sessions with instructions on how to navigate the ergometers and how to safely use the rowing equipment and boats.

Training is offered to experienced rowers on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Sunday mornings together with new rowers. Extra training sessions are added in preparation for the State Championships with Wednesday evening sessions offered during racing season October through to April.
