Welcome to the Rotorua Rowing Club
Returning Rowers On water training will probably start late May early July on Saturday at 8am.
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 2019
If you have come to one of our "Give it a Go" open days and would like to row this season fill in the online membership form and you will be included on club e-mails.
The next Learn to Row session is on Saturday the 4th of May at the earlier time of 8am.
If you want to talk to someone about rowing this year you can give one of the coaches a call, Chris Pearson 0274 903325
We will be arranging a mid-week erg training session - probably 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 let one of the coaches know or using the Enquiry form on the Membership tab so we can contact you.
You are welcome to bring others along to try rowing any Saturday or to erg sessions through to mid September before Spring Camp.
If you are a school rower see if you can get a group of four or more rowers. It gives you a lot more options at school regattas in 2020.

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.
