Firbank Aquastars - Swimming - is one of the leading clubs in Victoria that competes in both State and National competitions. Our Director of Swimming, Jason Cooper, is a former international swimmer who competed at various meets including: World Championships, Commonwealh Games and PanPac Games.
The Firbank Rowing Club was established in 1991. Firbank rows out of Powerhouse Rowing Club located on the Yarra River. The school introduces all Year 8 students rowing and enters crews from Years 9 - 12 in a number of Rowing Victoria regattas, including The Head of the Schoolgirls Regatta on the Barwon River. Firbank crews have enjoyed significant success at state and national level. The school recently appointed a new Director of Rowing, Alastair Isherwood, a former world champion
Alastair's vision for Rowing at Firbank is:
"Rowing is an extremely challenging sport that requires the utmost commitment, both physically and mentally. In addition it is the ultimate team sport with students honing not only their individual skills but crew skills through hours of training. One person alone cannot win a race for a crew - races are only won by achieving perfect synergy between crew members as they power the boat through the water. The aim of the Firbank program is to expose students to this amazing sport, to challenge their limits and continually redefine new boundaries and their understanding of their own capabilities. Whilst catering for those who, simply want to enjoy the sport and what it has to offer, the program will aim to provide opportunities for students to be successful at both the Head of the Schoolgirlsí Regatta, the Australian Rowing Championships and at an international level through rowing tours and selection in the Australian junior team. My vision for Firbank Grammar rowing is quite simply to have the premier school rowing program in Australia."
