Come Row With Us.

Aramoho Whanganui Rowing Club has a number of volunteer coaches that bring through top athletes. Coaching of athletes across the various classifications i.e. Novice through to Senior is run under a coordinated schedule that is agreed upon between the athletes and the coach.

Rowing boats and oars belong to the club and these are allocated according to the rowing ability of the various crews. Some members have privately owned boats and oars and rent space at our club house.

All coaches adhere to safety protocols and teach the rules of boating on the Whanganui River.

At all times a motorboat equipped with safety devices will accompany rowers who are at the initial stages of learning how to row competently.

Structured training both on and off water varies in intensity and is designed to build team, commitment, time management and competitiveness whilst also having fun.
