Welcome to the WRA

Keen to try out rowing?

Whether you've seen rowers out on Te Whanganui-a-Tara, and thought you'd like to do that, or perhaps you'd watched the NZ team at the Olympics, and now you want to be an Olympian? You've got to start somewhere.

Learn to Row courses are aimed at complete beginners. You needn't have any knowledge of rowing beforehand.

All clubs in the Wellington region welcome new rowers, new to Wellington or new to the sport.

Choosing a club is up to you - here are some points you may wish to consider:

  • Location

  • Cost

  • Coaching and Facilities

Check out the club websites (Bottom Right) for details on these, or contact your local rowing club to find out more details. Club contacts can also be found on the club contacts page.
