Rowing is organised by a Committee, in conjunction with the College. There are three training camps held each year and girls compete in various regattas throughout the season, including the North Island Championships and the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Championships at the end of Term 1. A “Learn to Row” programme is held throughout Term 3 so girls can have a try before committing to the season. We have a team of four dedicated coaches who run all the programmes.

Year Levels: Years 9-13 (Year 9’s commence in Term 4)
Competition Days/Terms: Rowing training begins in October (4 times a week) and increases to
5 to 6 times a week from January.
