Invitation from the Central Rowing Performance Centre

Are you a talented young rower about to leave school and interested in rowing for your country?
The Central RPC can provide you with the pathway to fulfil your ambition. It has already helped many young rowers reach the New Zealand rowing squad and is looking for potential future elite athletes to become part of this year’s programme.

The Central Rowing Performance Centre is part of Rowing New Zealand’s High Performance Programme which is about helping talented young rowers from school and club teams become elite athletes rowing for their country.

The core purpose of the High Performance Programme is the delivery of distinguished performances at the Olympic Games and World Championships, Senior, U23, Junior and other international competitions including U21.

Central RPC provides the infrastructure needed to help aspiring young rowers reach the top. This includes training by our world class coaches and the use of outstanding facilities and superb rowing waters. Health and nutrition are also carefully monitored by our professional support team and, although the focus is on rowing, education and vocational careers are not neglected. Links to tertiary institutions and local employment markets ensure there are study and employment opportunities for those who want them.

The Central RPC region covers the top of the south - Nelson and Marlborough, and lower north island with – Wellington, Horowhenua, Palmerston North, Wanganui and Taranaki.

Trials are held at the end of August each year. If you are interested in trialling or want some more information about the trial process, please contact Michele Munro, Manager
