Leading Edge Physical Therapy

AUBC is proud to announce Leading Edge Physical Therapy as its performance partner.

Leading Edge Physical Therapy was established in 2007 in response to a need in the market to provide high quality physiotherapy management and excellent customer service. With the principal physiotherapists having extensive experience in the sports medicine and its application in the elite setting, our clientele quickly took on a very sporting nature - with athletes from the football, soccer, basketball, athletics and particularly rowing utilising our deep knowledge in this area to achieve great results.
Our two principal physiotherapists have worked with Australian senior teams in the domestic and international setting. Andrew Darcey has been a physiotherapist with the Australian Rowing Team since 2013 and has worked with the senior team at training camps in Australia, as well as travelling with the team to World Cup regattas in Italy, Poland and Switzerland. James Trotter has worked with many Australian teams over his career, including Athletics, ​Water Polo and Canoe/Kayak. James has been selected as a physiotherapist with the Australian Olympic Team for the 2008 Beijing, 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympics.
This level of experience within the clinic lends itself to training all our staff at a high level to manage sporting injuries in these areas. ​We have established protocols within the clinic for screening rowers in pre-season for injury prevention and performance enhancement, as well as injury management pathways for the most common rowing injuries. ​​If you are curious how to improve your rowing or prevent that recurring injury that is interrupting your training, a visit to Leading Edge will help you achieve your goals.
Appointments can be made online at or by calling our reception on 8364 6800 (Rose Park) or 8159 1300 (Henley Beach).

Mention that you are a AUBC rower and you will receive our discounted rate.

Captain's Update 9th September 2014

Dear Blacks, Hugo here. 

There are a few important changes that have occurred around the club in the past week that I would like to make all members aware of:

Website Changes

If you look around the website you may notice there have been some changes of late, the most important can be seen under the "Blacks Corner," section, where you will notice two new web pages.

- Alumni and Mailing List

- Vice Presidents

These two pages have been a long time coming and will be of significant help in establishing a club database of alumni and in updating the long out-dated Vice Presidents contact list. I won't go into further detail as each page outlines it's purpose so please take the time to have a read.

To those of you who may still be in contact with anyone you know to be a past member or current VP of AUBC it would be greatly appreciated if you could forward this information on to them.

Captain's Update 7th October 2013

Dear Blacks, apologies it has been so long since my last update. I hope you're all well and as excited for the coming season as I am.

Once again here is a short update of the recent happenings around AUBC!

IV Break Down

Fingers crossed that some of you were able to keep an eye on the club's facebook page throughout IV, if you weren't able to do so included below is a short summary of the final day's racing written by Vanessa Rech. As was to be expected the weather was certainly a major hurdle to overcome, but from the sounds of things it didn't stop everyone from enjoying themselves and from some good racing. 
Captain's Update 9th December 2013

Good Morning Blacks! 

With Head of The Yarra on the first weekend of the month and Berri - Renmark on the weekend just gone, so far December has been a hectic month for AUBC. That being said, everything has run smoothly and our efforts have not been without success. Thanks to everyone who has chipped in recently, its great to see an attitude change moving through the club with more people stepping forward to help than ever before, you all know who you are and you have my thanks.

Captain's Update 11th August 2013

Dear Blacks, I hope you are well and coping with the cold weather better than I am. Just another brief update of some recent goings on around AUBC.

U23 World Champs

Congratulations to AUBC athlete and committee member Peta White who recently competed and placed 4th in the AUS Women's eight at the U23 World Champs. Well done Pedro! Peta has now returned to Australia to commence her training for the World Champs in September, we wish her all the best!
Captain's Update 15th July 2013

Dear Blacks,

Apologies for the lapse in communication over the last few weeks. With University exams, Trans Tasman and our Winter Mini Camp they have been both a mental and physical struggle, but not without their rewards.

Like my previous emails this is a brief summary of the recent happenings around our fantastic club.

Captain's Update 2nd June 2013

Greetings once again Blacks, I hope you are all well and surviving what feels like the first proper days of Winter.


Settling In

After the first few days of finding his footing and recovering from jet lag one of the first questions I received from a slightly troubled Sean was:
"What is a black?"

I explained that sports teams from Adelaide University are often known as 'The Blacks' (primarily due to their black and white uniform) and that when someone uses the term "blacks" around the club they are often referring to other club members and not meaning to be inappropriate. This seemed to reassure Sean that he hadn't come all this way to coach a club of racists and was able to see him get to work on more important business...

Captain's Update 20th May 2013


It is with great pride that I sit here piecing together my first email to you as captain for 2013 - 2014, there are (literally) some very big shoes to fill but I feel I am up for the challange. The coming year holds huge potential and many unknowns as we continue our period of development and cement our position as top rowing club in the state.

The following email contains a bit of an update in terms of recent and future club activity...
