Rowing

The Rowing season runs in Terms One and Four, with pre-season activities in Term Three.

 

In Term Four, the programme accommodates all exams and learning as priorities.  Following the end-of-year exams, the number of training sessions increases in preparation for the North Island and National Championships held in March.

 

Water sessions are based at the Auckland Rowing Club on the Tamaki River during term time, with land training based on-site at King’s College. Training is either early morning or immediately after school depending on the age group or the rostered day.  Everyone trains on Saturdays, and Sunday training is held for senior rowers and at times, U16’s.

 

The College boat fleet is well-maintained and suited to both training and competition.

 

King’s College provides all rowers with a chance to compete at regattas, although not all rowers attend every regatta.  Some regattas are designed for seniors, some for novices, and others for all levels of rowers.  Regattas are normally held on a Saturday and/or Sunday.
