Rowing Ireland is running Team Building Days through the Get Going…Get Going programme for transition year students.

We have teamed up with St. Michael’s Rowing Club and Castleconnell Boat Club in Limerick to offer these days to schools for their transition year students. It is important to keep students active and motivated through these challenging times.

It is important that we keep active and work alongside our peers in a fun and competitive environment. Rowing Ireland has engaged over 100,000 students since the inception of the Get Going…Get Rowing programme in 2014. The programme has gone from strength to strength over the last number of years.

These Team Building days were launched to allow students to experience rowing that may have not had the opportunity to before alongside their classmates and friends. Having the link with one of our clubs in Limerick to deliver these days, creates a link for interested students to join their local clubs.

Throughout the day there is a mix of on and off the water activity. Students will get the chance to experience rowing on the water and will learn rowing techniques before challenging their classmates in a race. Up to 30 students can take part and work together in this fun and motivational team building day!

If your school is interested in trying rowing through our Get Going…Get Rowing Programme, contact for more information.

23 million metres in 90 days

We are delighted to launch Rowkyo as we now mark 90 days from the Olympics in Tokyo.

Rowing Ireland and Get Going Get Rowing are asking every person in their Clubs and sitting rooms to get behind Ireland’s Olympic rowing team and help them row to Tokyo.

We are challenging everyone in Ireland with a rowing machine or scull to join the challenge and row a combined distance of 23 million metres.

We have 90 days from the 23rd of April to the 23rd of July to row the distance from the National Rowing Centre in Cork to Sea Forest Waterway in Tokyo Bay.

We are asking all Junior, Senior and Masters rowers in River, Offshore and Coastal clubs to help us achieve our goal of 23 million metres in 90 days.

We want to get all rowing clubs of Ireland to “Row together” to support #Rowkyo and our Olympic Rowing team.
