Membership Categories


Our Competing Senior Members are those who regularly train and race and include male and female rowers in all age groups. This class of membership enables full use of all Club facilities and entry into competitions, subject to the Rules of the Club. Members in this category are usually rowers with a few years experience or a previous history of participation in the sport. We offer coaching to squads competing in the Rowing NSW regatta program and our club has active masters rowers (aged 27 years and older) and enjoys success at state and national masters championships, and at international events.


Our Competing Junior Members class of membership is for students under 25 years of age and who are attending full-time studies. Membership enables the full use of all Club facilities and entry into competitions, subject to the Rules of the Club. Members in this category are usually rowers with a few years of experience and a previous history of participation in the sport at a secondary school or those that have come through our Learn to Row program.


Are you… male or female, lightweight, with a good sense of humour and good at bossing people around? We need you :) Full training given, mateship guaranteed, waterways around Australia to be enjoyed. To become an LRC coxswain, considered by many (especially coxes) the most valuable person in the crew, apply here or come into the Club to speak with the Captain, or just say you are interested and club members will put you in touch with the right person to help you. Coxes participate in the rowing programs and get the same satisfaction from winning as the rowers do, but without the sweat! 


Not everyone wants to compete in races and some simply want to row for health and fitness. If this is you, you might be interested in becoming a Recreational rower. This membership provides full access of the Club facilities (including indoor rowing or exercise in the gym), with the understanding that competitive members are given priority use of the equipment. Bookings can be made to ensure access is possible. Examples of restricted periods would be during regattas or at peak training times on the pontoon.

If you have not rowed before or only have limited experience, then you will need to complete a Learn To Row course before you can join the Recreational Rowing Group. Boat allocation to Recreational rowers is subject to satisfying the Club Captain of their rowing competence (as do all Club members), and understanding of the Waterways rules of safety and navigation.


Our Supporter Member category is for Coaches, Coxswains, volunteers, parents and Members – On Leave. Because we are a community based Club we encourage membership from individuals who do not wish to row but are keen to be part of the Leichhardt Rowing Club community to assist with the many activities required to support our rowers.


Guest Memberships are available to members of other rowing clubs who are experienced rowers and seek access to our Club for a period of six months or less. This might include persons visiting from overseas or interstate or wishing to row with other Leichhardt Members in a composite competition that has been endorsed by the Clubs Committee.
