Terms 1 and 4 (Summer)

Rowing is one of the premier summer sports at College. The boys train at various locations across Canterbury and, when in Christchurch, are expected to bike to Kerr’s Reach from College each training day.

College competes in a number of club, interschool and national rowing regattas throughout the year. The highlight of the year is the Maadi Cup, which is the pinnacle of secondary school rowing.

There is an expectation that parents of rowers will get involved in the day-to-day organisation of the club – including helping with transporting equipment, preparing meals, supervising the boys at camp, and more. 

Rowing is an option for Year 9 students during Term 4, NOT Term 1.
