Athlete Categorisation

Please see below email to athletes wishing to be categorised.

Dear Athletes,

Rowing Australia is once again working with each of the State Institutes/Academies in identifying athletes who warrant support to assist them in achieving International medal winning performances. This is our traditional scholarship program which the AIS refers to as Athlete Categorisation.

The attached document outlines the criteria to ultimately determine categories of support. You should read the attached document (click here to download the document) and in turn complete the application form at

Please complete this form no later than 22:00 AEST on Thursday 27 October 2016.

We appreciate this is a very short turnaround however approval processes for the Policy have been held up with the AIS. It is important to us that we maintain the moderation process which these applications are subjected to meaning we need this information prior to the moderation meeting.

Applications are collected by Rowing Australia and forwarded to each SIS/SAS for screening prior to a moderation meeting in November. Following this meeting, recommendations are forwarded to the AIS for final consideration and confirmation

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Kind regards,

Bernard Savage
Performance Director
