The National Rowing Centre for Corporate packages

We are delighted to offer Corporate Rowing Packages to companies who are looking to offer their employees the ultimate team-building experience.

This will be done in a fun and safe environment, encouraging a strong team spirit, and healthy competition.

Rowing is a fantastic team sport as each team will have to work together, in sync, to move the boat while competing with colleagues.

We will provide an official Rowing Ireland coach who will guide each team from arrival to a reflection of everything accomplished on the day and how it can be applied going forward.

What’s included:
• Indoor rowing warm-up and technique
• Learn to row on the water session
• Race against your colleagues
• T-shirt for each member of the team
• Lunch
• Drinks reception & awards presentation

Rowing is a total body, low impact workout that caters for everyone. This is a unique experience for you to take part and to help your team perform together in a high-performance environment.
