At Get Going…Get Rowing we want to give everyone a sport and pathway for life through introducing as many as possible to rowing and sport for life.

The programme is fun and interactive. It is a multi faceted programme with links to the community and network of over 100 rowing clubs around the country.

Not only do we give you the opportunity to engage in rowing on machines, you also can try rowing on the water on our on the water days. 

How does Get Going…Get Rowing work?

  • Rowing Ireland will supply rowing machines and/or partner a rowing Ireland club to conduct classes in.
  • As part of the initiative you will be given the option to experience a minimum of one on the water session
  • All participants invited to take part in at least one Get Rowing #Blitzit events (Trinity, Carlow, Limerick, Galway, Lough Rynn Castle, Hanover Quay, Killarney)

At the end of your four/six week programme you will have the opportunity to compete in a #Blitz event on and off the water. These are held around the country and are organised in conjuction with our Community and TY coaches and Local Sports partnerships.

We have seen participants now transition to clubs all over the country. Some of our early Get Rowers have even become part of our High Performance pathway.

Check out our TrY Rowing peer led Leadership programme that is a peer lead leadership programme gives every student an introductory certificate in rowing coaching. Our TY students coach their peers to row and get active and moving.

Our new Team building day is a fun experience where your class get to work together and row as a crew on the water. The day culminates in a fun school regatta.

Come on board and join us in this fun active programme. In 2019  we had 36,000 individual students rowing.
