2023 Rowing Season Registrations Open

About Genesis Rowing:

Genesis Rowing is run in partnership with Pine Rivers Rowing Club (PRRC) at Lake Kurwongbah, which is conveniently located only a few minutes from Genesis Christian College. This partnership allows participants of the rowing program to train on land at Genesis Sport & Aquatics Fitness Centre and on the water at Lake Kurwongbah on Dayboro Rd.

Rowing is a hugely enjoyable and engaging sport. It is easy to get started and there is always more to learn and develop. It is often referred to as one of the best whole body workouts and is low impact on joints and growing muscles. One of the best parts of rowing is that it is both a team and individual sport. We have a fantastic rowing community, but when you get out on the lake in the boat by yourself, it’s up to you.

Genesis Rowing began in 2016 and has produced State and National school-aged champions.

The rowing season is split into three parts. It begin in Terms 1 and 2 training for and rowing in regattas run by Rowing Queensland and competing in the South Queensland Schools’ Conference. If students wish to continue rowing in Term 3, we prepare for and compete in the South Queensland Schools’ Champions Regatta and then, at the end of Term 3, the Queensland Schools’ Championship Regatta. Students can continue to row in Term 4 if they wish, and this has a focus on fitness and fun.

Students in Year 8 – 12 can participate in rowing. Year 7 students can train and if it is physically appropriate, they may be allowed to compete, but this will be against Year 8 students.

Registrations are open not only to Genesis students but also to students in our local community.

To register, please email Andrew Duncan
