Para-Rowing provides athletes with a physical or intellectual impairment the opportunity to be active on the water, get involved in a fun and friendly club environment, and participate in a variety of competitions from club regattas through state and national championships to world championships and Paralympic Games.

The sport can cater for athletes with a variety of impairments. Please refer to the Classification page for general information about classification and the three sport classes.

Para-Rowing is integrated into the High Performance unit within Rowing Australia. It was introduced as a Paralympic sport at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games and provides athletes with the opportunity to achieve at the highest level.

In conjunction with the APC and State Sporting Organisations, Rowing Australia is actively identifying talent in each state.
