Girls in Years 9 to 12 have the opportunity to trial and train for the College Rowing Program. Girls are selected to compete in various crews.

Crews train at the Genazzano/Xavier boat sheds in Kew, also along the Yarra River and Maribyrnong River, to prepare for weekend regattas, in Terms 4 and 1, including the Head of School Girls Regatta, on the Barwon River in. An introductory ‘Learn to Row’ program is also run for Year 8 students in Term 3 of each year.
