Para- Rowing is rowing for people with physical, intellectual or sensory impairments and takes that name because the plant and coaching techniques are adapted.
If you are interested or know of somebody who might like to try out the sport contact Kevin Strickland at Rowing NZ firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with somebody in your area.
For Clubs that are wanting to start an Para-Rowing Program read the Adaptive Rowing Blueprint and make contact with Rowing NZ.
RNZ & the Halberg Trust have put together a project this summer to have some athletes from the Auckland, Waikato & Bay of Plenty colleges compete at the Maadi Cup. Again if you know of any teenager that has a disability and might like to row get in touch with us.
