Strategic Plan


The Rowing Australia Board and Council have collectively developed the Rowing Whole of Sport Strategic Plan 2015 to 2020 for Rowing in Australia which will be vital in ensuring the continued high performance success of Australian rowing as well as providing a blueprint for the further development of the sport as a whole.

In order to ensure that the plan is achievable Rowing Australia and its Members have developed an annual Plan on a Page which identifies the key deliverables for each calendar year. Each of these deliverables will require whole of sport collaboration, and achievement of the deliverables each year represents significant advancement across each of its key areas.

Further to the RA model, Rowing SA have created a draft Strategic Plan for 2021-2023 which works in line at the association level to manage the objectives of the immediate rowing community. Though the document is currently under review, the vision is to always remain that Rowing South Australia is an inclusive, thriving community which is accessible to all to enjoy. The Plan is constructed around five key pillars, and within each pillar are set a number of goals and strategic actions, all grounded from the collated insights, knowledge and expertise from the consultation process earlier this year.

We are currently seeking final input and feedback on the draft Strategic Plan from the rowing community.

From the 6 – 27 October 2020 submission forms will be available to provide comment on the draft Strategic Plan. Additionally, email comments and written submissions can be emailed to Andrew Swift at

We look forward to your input.
