Welcome to the Rotorua Rowing Club
Season opens on Saturday May 12th
We've had some requests from parents to have a go at rowing - just a go on the water with their child - so here's the plan:
Wednesday May 9th 6pm at the club - The basics, on rowing machines
Sunday May 13th, 8.30 at the club - bring your rower and we'll get you on the water mixed with experienced rowers
And if the weather is hopeless we'll try again the following Sunday - watch this web site for updates.
The coaching team have had some discussions about how parents can assist us during the season. Based on models used successfully at other clubs we'll need volunteers for:
Learn - to - Row for 2018
When: There are two sessions a week :
Check Dates each week to confirm these sessions.
If you decide to carry on rowing you can join the club and row for the club and your school – bring your friends along to make up a crew.
There is no cost to try out our sport.

The Rotorua Rowing Club has been operational since 1904. It includes under it’s “umbrella” Club rowers, younger rowers from the six Rotorua secondary schools and an active and growing Masters program.
Junior rowers row for the club during the inter-club season and for their respective schools during the Secondary Schools rowing season. As schools do not have the numbers to maintain a rowing program long term it is much more effective for the club to provide the equipment and facilities and make it available to all the schools and club members.
Our club numbers are approximately 60, including coaches and committee.
To help with the running costs of the club we run an annual regatta on the Blue Lake in Rotorua which involves every club members family with voluntary work. Outside of Karapiro, this is the biggest regatta held in the North Island.
The club is located in the Watersports building on the Rotorua city lakefront behind the Sound Shell and rowers train on the western side of the lake from the City past Ngongataha township to the northern side of the lake, generally shallow and safe training water.
