The TIS conducts the Tasmanian Rowing Pathway Program in partnership with Rowing Australia and Rowing Tasmania.


To identify, develop and prepare Tasmanian athletes to compete successfully at an international level.


The TIS works predominately in the high performance section of the Pathway Program, operating a two-tier structure with a Talent Development Squad / Talent Development Scholarship for emerging athletes and a NTC Development Squad for TIS High Performance Scholarship athletes. This provides the pathway for selection into national teams and Rowing Australia’s National Training Centres.

The Talent Development Squad provides athletes with exposure to a high performance daily training environment through a camps based program.

Talent Development Scholarship
The Talent Development Scholarship provides the top ranked Talent Development Squad athletes with a higher-level access to expert coaching, and access to basic sports science and strength and conditioning services.

NTC Development Squad

Culture and Values:

The TIS values of Excellence, Team Work and Integrity apply across all TIS sports programs.

Values are incredibly important because they underpin culture and strongly influence performance. They let others know what is important to us and are reflected in the way we behave.

Each program individually defines what the TIS values mean and how they play out in the behaviours and attitudes of the coaches, athletes and support team involved in that program.

The image below sets out the Values as they apply to the TIS rowing program.

TIS scholarship athletes must demonstrate commitment to the TIS values and behave in accordance with the values as they apply to the program they are part of at all times.
