2019 – 2024 Strategic Plan


Rowing Ireland launched our five-year strategic plan in 2019. Our plan is based on four pillars that are key to further developing our sport.

High Performance – “We will excel”

  • Reinforce the High-Performance strategy to continue delivering podium performance at ranking international events.
  • Evaluate and improve the pipeline and pathway to the Rowing Ireland team.
  • Provide conditions and support to ensure all rowers and coaches reach their maximum potential.

Leading our sport

  • Be an innovative National Governing Body using efficient and effective internal structures and systems.
  • Continue to operate to best practice standards as set out in the Governance Code.
  • Ensure our members accept their responsibility to safeguard children and vulnerable adults.
  • Promote policies that support a safe on and off the water environment.

Supporting clubs

  • Strong clubs are the hub of our sport and central to the success of rowing in Ireland.
  • Increase standards by providing quality coach education to our clubs.
  • Support clubs to implement good governance, child protection and safety policies.
  • Together we are Rowing Ireland #wearerowingireland

Rowing for all, a sport for life
