Crews are selected by coaches in consultation with the Director of Coaching and Teacher in Charge of the Mitchell club. Year 9 crews row at the Head of the River in 'first and final' events.
In term four Year 7 rowers commence rowing. Emphasis is placed on learning to row in a single scull, moving from a tub (beginner) to a training scull. The rowing tank is used for skill development and ergometers are used for teaching the rowing stroke, but not for strength. Towards the end of the season there is some sweep oared rowing in fours and also in quad sculls. Do not compete until Year 9. Training sessions for the Christie Club are in the morning.
The Head of the River is rowed for the Fairbairn Cup. APS Head of the River winners since 1868.
