State sport awards honour rowing community members

Members of the rowing community are being recognised for their contribution to Australian sport during 2021.

Congratulations to the rowing finalists and winners who have been acknowledged by their respective State Sport Institutes.

As well as recognising our winners and finalists, Rowing Australia (RA) takes this opportunity to acknowledge the network of coaches, support staff and families who have contributed to their success.

RA will host its national awards night, The Hancock Prospecting Rower of The Year, on Friday 11 March 2021 at the Penrith Panthers Leagues Club. Tickets go on sale on Friday 10 December.

Rowing Community Members recognised by their respective state sport institutes

Please note this list is current as of Friday 10 December and will be updated as finalists and winners are announced. Rowing Australia is not eligible to nominate finalists for State Awards, nor does RA play a role in selecting the winners of these awards. Please refer to the specific state institutes for respective nomination policies.
