About the role

Damascus College Rowing is recruiting rowing coaches for the 2024-25 rowing season. 

The Damascus College Rowing Program is a vibrant and committed group of students, parents and staff. Rowing is a wonderful team sport that demands commitment, passion and hard work.

Rowing is a sport with a long and proud tradition in Ballarat. The natural feature of our Lake Wendouree provides a recreational and sporting focus for community enjoyment. Rowing as a sport is considered by many as the ultimate team activity and in preparing young people for the future, the decision was undertaken in 2012 to offer rowing to the students of Damascus College. The College undertook a review of the rowing program in 2019, which confirmed the place of rowing and strengthened the structures to support the student experience.

What do we want from rowing for our students? We want them to build relationships and skills through working in a physical team environment. We want young people to experience the challenges and rewards that being a part of a strong team offers and we want to provide another opportunity for young people to build connection to their school and broader community.

All coaches are provided:

  • A rewarding experience
  • Reimbursement of time and expenses throughout the rowing season
    • Nominal payment for attendance at training, camps & regattas
    • NCAS (coaching) registration fees
    • Motorboat licence fees
  • Coaching Uniform
  • Professional Development

If you would like to volunteer at Damascus College, you will require a current, valid Working with Children's Check (Volunteer or Employee status) OR a current VIT registration.
