Intermediate Program

Intermediate Program 


The operations of UQBC were severely interrupted in early 2022 by heavy flooding of the Brisbane River which caused damage to both the structure and the contents of the boatshed. For several weeks following the floods, use of the river was constrained as a result of debris which posed a threat to all river craft.

Conditions in the river are now largely back to normal but the UQBC boatshed is still under reconstruction and the boating pontoon is scheduled for replacement in coming weeks. These disruptions have rendered our various rowing programs – Learn to Row, Intermediate and Varsity - unviable for the moment.

We regret that we are unable to offer these programs in 2022 but anticipate being back in full operation in 2023. Please keep in touch with us through our website  (at ) and social media and we hope to be able to assist you next year.



Intermediate Program

Designed to build general skills, technique and basic fitness.

It is a three day per week commitment.

At the end of the program, rowers will start focusing on regatta specific skills and upon successful completion will be able to apply for full UQBC competitive membership.

The Intermediate program is only open to rowers who have successfully completed the UQBC Learn to Row program, or rowers with equivalent experience at the discretion of the coordinator of the program.

Please contact us at and let us know what experience you do have, and we can give you an idea.


Please note: you must be a minimum of 15 years to participate in the Intermediate program.
