Learn to Row - 9-11am on Sunday 10th September and Sunday 17th September at Tauranga Rowing Club at Memorial Park. Email [email protected] for more information. 


Rowing is a summer sport and the season runs from September to April (Term 3 through to the end of Term 1 the following year). There is some winter training available. Training gradually increases to 5 mornings a week at the peak of the season.


Students train at the Tauranga Rowing Club down at Memorial Park. Regattas mostly take place at Lake Karapiro near Cambridge. Some regattas happen in Rotorua or Auckland. Every second year we travel to Twizel in the South Island.


Students of all year levels are accepted, however, joining in Year 13 is not possible as students will leave school before the season is finished. Students from Year 8 are often recruited to be coxswains.


Fees depend on whether the squad is travelling to the South Island for national competitions. There are opportunities to fundraise towards the fees and payments can be made in agreed instalments.


Coaches: The team of coaches are from Tauranga Rowing Club


Students are required to make their own way to training each morning. Van transport is organised for each regatta, driven by parent support.
