Welcome to the Rotorua Rowing Club
Season opens on Saturday May 12th
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:
New Rowers for 2018
If you have come to one of our open days and would like to start rowing then fill in the online membership form and come along on Saturdays at 7.30am
We would also like you to come to a mid-week erg training session - preferably Wednesday mornings between 6.30 and 7.30am. If that does not suit there are spaces on Wednesday night between 5 and 6pm.
If you have a winter sport on Saturday mornings then contact us using the Enquiry form on the Membership tab so we can contact you. At this stage the alternative time will be Sundays at 8.00am starting from May 27th.
You are welcome to bring others along to try rowing any Saturday or Wednesday through to mid September before Spring Camp

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.
