The WOMBATS program

What is the Wombat Program

The WOMBATS are our Weary Old Men Battling Against Time and are the Men’s Shed of the Waterway. The intent of the Wombats is to provide a rowing haven for our more sedate rowers who are looking for a mateship, camaraderie and a more relaxed row. The Program is for rowers who have been away from the sport for some time and are looking to get back into rowing in a more relaxed and safe and controlled environment.

The WOMBATS have been known to also get up some good bursts of speed and happy to pull on the oar handle when they are getting into their training programs.

This program therefore offers the best of both worlds.

Who is eligible to join the WOMBATS.

If you haven't rowed in the last 2 years, we recommend that you do the Refresher Program to get re-acquainted with the sport.

This program will also help you get to know our water way before to get back into a boat on your own.
