​​​​​​​Rowing is one of New Zealand's premier sports. It's a great way to keep fit, have fun and make life long friends. 

Give it a go - a great pathway - school rowers can go onto international success with Rowing NZ, University Rowing Scholarships in the States and other opportunities. 

ACG Tauranga, Aquinas College, Mt Maunganui College, Papamoa College, Otumoetai College and Tauranga Girls' College students.  This is a great chance to give rowing a go, join in and see what all the hype is about!

Unfortunately we cannot provide any family discounts for second sibling membership. We are a non-profit organisation and pass on all costs to our members. For instance we won't receive a discount on your affiliation fees from our governing bodies for a second sibling membership.

The Committee will consider fee discounts for financial hardship on a case by case basis.

Additional costs: 

  • TRC club uniform (TRC training singlet and/or TRC Row Suit for regattas)
