Rowing Club@CSSS
In 2015 our school started an indoor Rowing Program with the assistance of Sporting Schools Australia.  We are the only State Primary school in Australia that runs such a program.  Our team of approximately 25 students train twice per week on our five ergo machines and other fitness equipment.  We have invested in the most up to date technology and coaching principles to provide this opportunity to our Coomera Springs students.  We have three coaches – Miss Talbot, Mr Harvey and Mr Dempsey-Ceh, also with Mrs Hodder who runs the program and budget requirements.
Since its inception, the program participants have been on and excursion to an indoor Rowing centre in Brisbane and toured the rowing sheds of Brisbane Boys Grammar School, they have also participated in two incursions where specialist coaches have visited our team.  Two students from 2016, competed in the Australian Indoor Rowing Championships and achieved outstanding results.    They both placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their events.  
Our school works closely with Rowing QLD and Rowing Australia and together we are developing more exciting rowing excursions for the future.
