Those who wish to continue and show promise move into the club’s Development Squad the following year, in September, where they will train for 12 months in preparation for racing. The cost for this stage is $300.00 + tax.

Once they are selected to represent NSRC as a novice, they become full club members and train and race competitively. The cost of this is $1,100.00 plus additional costs for regattas, rowing camps and the NZ Club Rowing Champs in either Twizel or Cambridge.

Initial training is done on lake Pupuke at 3.30 pm twice a week and after that, training also includes regular sessions at Greenhithe.
