Rowing NZ Overview

The New Zealand Rowing Association (NZRA), trading as Rowing New Zealand (RNZ), is the governing body of rowing in New Zealand. Rowing in New Zealand has been a competitive sport since the 1850's and the organisation became a registered incorporated society in 1983.

RNZ focuses on school, university, club and para rowing in New Zealand. While the High Performance arm of the organisation looks after all the international teams representing New Zealand, from juniors through to the successful elite team.

The primary objective of RNZ is to foster and promote the sport of rowing in New Zealand in all its forms and classifications.
