Members Terms, Conditions & Expectations

The committee of the Scotch College Old Collegians & Community Rowing Club (SCOCCRC) asks that all members and membership applicants familiarize themselves with the following Terms and Conditions of Membership. By applying for or renewing membership at SCOCCRC, each member/applicant agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, the SCOCCRC Constitution and all other policies, all of which are available upon request.


The SCOCCRC has been created to encourage the participation of the broad community represented as old collegians, parents, friends and supporters of the College in the enjoyment and collegiality of rowing. The clubs mandate is one of inclusiveness, teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Its charter is to promote fitness, fun and friendship amongst the broader Scotch rowing community and to support our student rowers. Members of the club will be training and housed in the Scotch College Boatshed on the River Torrens. Scotch presently leases racks/bays to the following: Dragon Boats South Australia and St Peters Girls. Along with the main school program running at West Lakes, from the end of 2014, Year 7/8 Scotch students will be training weekly at the River Torrens.

Members of the SCOCCRC must not only respect these programs but also use ONLY the racks that have been provided. The SCOCCRC will have a coordinator/coach who will provide coaching, assistance and be the liaison of any maintenance or other requests that may arise. The school’s Director of Rowing, Mr. Toby Lister ultimately is in charge of the program and will be making any and all necessary decisions related to the availability of facilities, boats and coaching.
