The club has worked with Corowa High School for numerous years to offer Rowing as sport option during Term 1 & 4 cumulating in rowing for the school in the past at Barwon competing against other Victorian State Schools.
This program ran in the 1970's, then Peter Gamble revived it and now Wes Canny runs it with some helpers including two teachers from the school.
The $7000 grant will be used to purchase a racing scull which will be named after the grant, and also a new ergo for the club. A photo of the boat will be put up when its here.
Our grant application was endorsed by Rowing Victoria who hold us up as a model club in the way we nurture and train kids.
This program is seeing direct results now with some kids training for the Nationals next year that have come out of the School Rowing Program.
