Norwood International Rowing Club is made up of over 100 students who take part in rowing trainings, regattas, and camps throughout the school year. The NIHS Rowing Club brings together a large community of current students, staff, parents, and supporters along with old scholars and professional coaches. Norwood International Rowing Club competes in regattas across South Australia throughout term 4 and 1 of each season. Over Term 2 and 3 students can participate in a range of winter/off season and preseason training to maintain and build their fitness and rowing ability.
As a member of the Rowing Club, you will experience rowing across the school boathouses at the Torrens River and West Lakes, while training camps take place across South Australia including the Port River, Murray Bridge, Walkers Flat, Mannum and the riverland. Students will have access to the High-Performance Rowing Center at set training times for strength and conditioning training. Senior Rowers have access to offsite gym facilities and personal trainers through our partnership with Train 2 Max. Rowers may also have the opportunity to take part in interstate regattas including Head of the Yarra, Melbourne Head and the Australian Rowing Championships. In the lead up to 2025 we are continuing our planning for the ANZAC Rowing Regatta in Malta where Year 11/12 student will represent Australia.
Benefits of Rowing
As students develop and evolve within the Norwood International Rowing Club they actively engage and improve their ability to be organised, work within a team environment, become a leader and be part of a likeminded community. It provides an environment to successful develop their aptitude for rowing in a social or high-performance pathway. Participation in the Rowing Club allows for students to develop an understanding of areas including technology in sport, training principles, skill acquisition, group dynamics, nutrition, and performance analysis.
